About Shelley @ FoodandWord

Shelley is a wife, mom of four incredible kids and a follower of Jesus. She likes to cook and bake and isn't afraid to cook without having a recipe in hand to start with. She likes variety in her ingredients and tries to be healthy when she can, but isn't afraid of making the "not so good for you" foods, either.

She and her family have recently moved to “the farm" with her in-laws on the old family homestead. Her children are the 6th generation of family to live in this beautiful place – smack dab in the middle of The Flint Hills of Kansas! They are learning to enjoy living in the beauty of God’s creation, and trying to teach their children to live off the land as much as they can. Living with chickens, a dog, many outside farm cats and the regular appearance of deer in the garden across the road have brought a suprise every day. 

Her hope is that you all will enjoy whatever inspiration and/or creation that comes from her blog. Whether it comes in the form of food to eat or from the Word of God to ingest, either way both are sure to fill you up!

Challenge Experience: "Among the many gifts that God gives us in life, the ability to create and give good food to your loved ones is one of the most rewarding. Being a part of the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge has given me the opportunity to share with others some of the whole grain foods I have been able to make for my family and has been a great experience. The WonderMill has been a wonderful resource for generating creativity in my kitchen, encouraging family time while cooking, and bringing wholesome goodness to our table. I'm a grateful traveler on this Grain Mill Wagon journey. Thank you!"
