Share Your 2014 Word and Win a Copy of God Loves Your Dream

What is your guiding theme word for 2014?

Last year, I chose "Forward" as my guiding word because I felt stuck and needed a word that would inspire me to keep moving toward my goal, no matter what.

This year, I've decided on an even more radical word.

At first, I was going to choose "Receive" as my guiding word, because as much as I accomplished last year, it always seemed like I wasn't receiving the expected outcome or reward for my efforts.

However, as I read through my morning devotions it came to me that my real challenge wasn't the desire to Receive, but my willingness to surrender the outcome of my efforts to God's will.

I am such a control freak that even considering the word surrender makes my heart skip a beat. Which is really all the confirmation I needed that SURRENDER is my theme word and my challenge for 2014.

Now, it's your turn! 

What is going to be your theme word for 2014? What word will inspire, scare, motivate, you to move your life in an exciting new direction this year?

If you're brave enough to share, I will pick 5 people to receive a free ebook of GOD LOVES YOUR DREAM.

To enter, all you have to do is tweet me at @seakiev, or leave a comment on my Facebook page (click on the link in the sidebar) or a comment here.

I can't wait to hear your word!

DO....I am hoping to do more in 2014..I want to push myself to go for a walk every day even if the weather is crappy and I am not a winter person. To Do more with the grand kids...guess I will have to try even harder since our daughter always does fun stuff with the other grandparents and all I seem to be is a babysitter. Do more stuff with my husband since his heart attack two years ago I have realized that life is too short.
CRUCIBLE- 2014 will be a year of changes which will be both exciting and difficult. Too often I try to take control and try to fix things. Remembering that while God may not take away the fearful events, He is present & He is in control. I am in His crucible. All is OK!

I despise odd numbers, so God gave me two.

Patience because it's never been one of my virtues and I want to overcome that.

Forgiveness because I've held such contempt in my heart against people, but expected forgiveness from those that hurt me. This year I am going to work on forgiving and moving on.

Be is my guiding word. I have friends and know others whom I look up to and think to myself "I want to be like person, or do what that person is doing." Then I often have follow up thoughts of "you can't do that." "That is too hard." "There are too many obstacles so why try?" Enough already! I am going to BE the person I want to become. To help me along the way I have decided to start reading a daily devotional and began with Trusting God with Your Dream. I have many dreams to realize and know that I cannot do it alone.
You all win! Please send me you email address (unless they're already on your profile) and I'll send out the ebooks today. Thank you for sharing!

Collard Greens with White Beans - A Vegetarian Take on a Classic

Could a vegetarian version of collard greens ever compete with the traditional goodness of collard greens cooked with a smoked ham hock?

I was skeptical until I made this recipe. It is every bit as delicious. Taking the place of the ham hock is the rind of parmesan or other hard cheese. I keep a small plastic bag of cheese rinds in the freezer, they are the perfect flavor enhancer of stocks and soups, and now collard greens.

Similar recipes call for dried beans, but sine I live 10,400 feet above sea level, dried beans are always a challenge unless I'm using a pressure cooker. For this recipe, I opted for canned beans and am just as happy as can be.

This recipe is quick, easy, delicious, and so rich and satisfying a bowlful with a slice of garlicky olive oil toasted bread makes the perfect week night dinner. It is also a satisfying side dish.

Let's get cooking!

Dinner with Julia

What do Ina Garten and Martha Stewart have in common? Both women describe cooking through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking when they were young as foundation to learning to cook.
Julia Child is an inspiration to most home cooks of a certain age. I found her so inspiring that at one time, I had all of her cookbooks, including a first edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and had read almost every biography written about her, My Life in France, being my favorite. And yet! I confess that until this week, my cooking adventures in Mastering were limited to her omelet recipe, her iconic recipes for onion soup and Beef Bourguignon.
When the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook chose Mastering as its cookbook for the month, I jumped at the chance to finally use Julia’s first cookbook for its intended purpose.
I decided to start with something easy, a poached egg. I purchased the best organic eggs I could afford, read the recipe several times, and began. After I’d tur…

McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk.
