German Chocolate Caramel Brownies

German Chocolate Caramel Brownies Yup, you caught me. I cut ‘em while they were still piping hot. Of course they’re a gooey mess. Of course I couldn’t wait; they’re  irresistible. How irresistible you ask? Enough that four pans of these gooey, decadent bars were once  baked in the Fisher kitchen and then allegedly FedEx’d to a birthday boy in Ohio. Overnight. Except for unwrapping an entire package of caramels, this version of brownies goes together quickly. If you have kids, they make...

Productive and Successful: A Prayer

Productive and Successful: A Prayer

Productive and Successful: A Prayer Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3 (CEB) A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men. Proverbs 18:16 (AMP) I stumbled upon a couple of verses last night that felt timely. I felt like I wanted to claim whatever power these verses might have in my life–to remind God, like, “You know Sir, this is what You’ve promised . . .” But before I felt released to pray such things, I needed to better understand...

Remember to Roar!

Remember to Roar!

Remember to Roar! A few weeks ago, my daughter, sensing just how hip I truly am, sent me a song to listen to. Not actually being so very hip, I’d probably never have heard it had she not sent it my way. Upon watching an endearing video on YouTube, I was downright giddy about some of the song’s imagery.
