-Gratitude turns what we have into enough. – The Mercy House

My girlfriends and I were recently talking about my friend Kristin’s meaningful organization, The Mercy House (an organization that funds maternity homes in Kenya), one morning over breakfast. We were also enjoying this Easy Blueberry French Toast Casserole, drizzled with 100% maple syrup. :)

But first, I want to tell you about another friend’s Beyond Kindness Tour coming up in September, and ways we can jump on board with this sometimes forgotten Christian virtue.

If you have time, check out Emily’s mission and thought-provoking, heart-stirring challenge to consider “kindness” to shape our lives, and what the tour is all about (and her blog, Beyond The Red Chair). Sign up for Emily’s blog so you can get the updates!

Kindness and love

Kindness is moving … and it’s not what we often think of as “just being nice.” It’s actually a very generous way to live, and we could change the world, if only we’d be kind to one another.

I think about how in our 40’s my husband and I were leaders. Now in our 50’s, we’re on a different path. We have moved more into a mentoring role (didn’t we just get married?) We’re now thinking of things like, who, with a different background than ours, can we come alongside, who can we reach out and share a meal with? With a heart that is willing to bridge the gap of differences with kindness and love.

Right?

Our family is so in love with blueberries, especially this time of year! We eat them all year round in our home, even in the winter, when you can buy organic frozen blueberries! And what better to share with others than a beautiful blueberry dish?

If you cannot find Lake Chelan Blueberry Streusel Bread in the store, use a specialty cinnamon bread.

  1. You always make me drool!  And you always bowl me over with your intentional kindness!  Yes, we can change the world with it!

  2. If we assemble ahead of time, can it be assembled completely or do I add the eggs/milk right before baking?

    Thank you.
