I'm Now a Contributing Writer for Keeper of the Home

Last fall I was privileged to write a guest post for Keeper of the Home. Since then, Stephanie decided to take on six contributing writers to ease her work since she is committed to posting daily and has a demanding schedule with a husband and three little ones. Again, I am privileged to be one of the contributing writers now posting every six weeks on Keeper of the Home.
To date I've contributed two posts. One concerns the use of whole chickens and the other offers some encouragement and ideas for serving our husbands through a nourishing diet. Posted in two parts, you will find the second part here.

From now on, I'll keep my readers in the loop as to when I've contributed another post. Till then, catch up on the two mentioned above.
