Fedewa Family Portraits:

Here are some of the pictures that I took for Noela's portraits.   Is it just me or do all people who like photography take TONS of picutes of  the same thing and pick the best or keep them all :~) ?

Numbers 6:24-26
"The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace."

Please Pray A Witnessing Story~

I thought that you would be interested to hear about the time that my family and some friends had witnessing to some homeless people on Sat.

Saturday the 23 at 2:15, (yes the time and date are important) my family went out with some friends to a group of homeless people that live by our house. One of the moms had already met the community so was able to get us acquainted with the people very quickly! We brought them some food, blankets, and warm clothes. After delivering our donations we started a nice conversation about their lives, we presented the wordless bridge and asked if they had excepted Christ as their Lord and Savior, of course as most people do they said, "Yes". We kept talking, and asked if Deborah (one of the ladies) would like us to pray for her, she answered, "No" and said that she had put God on the "back burner" for awhile. We explained that you would go to hell if you died with Christ on the "back burner" and you never know when you will die "you could die tonight!" She seemed to slightly understand and agreed that we could pray for her. We said our good-byes and went home.

Today I got a call from our grandma who we had told about our time with the homeless. She said that a newspaper article told the sad story of Saturday the 23 at 9:15 a fire had broken out in their homeless camp, two men died. One lady lost all she had. I thought that this was an amazing story; God must have really wanted those people to hear the Gospel He must have wanted us to be there that day to shine His light before they died. I am just praying that those two men got to read some of the Gospel tracts that we left for them.

Please keep that community of homeless people in your prayers.

Another Recipie

Challah Bread
1/4 cup warm water and to packages yeast (4 1/2 tsp.) Dissolve together and set aside
Measure in large bowl:
2 3/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup oil (we used olive oil)
4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup sugar
Stir all together. Add 3 eggs one at a time and add the yeast. Add flour one at a time start adding flour until dough is not sticky anymore--usually ten or more! I use a little less than half white, the rest whole wheat. Let dough rise until doubled. Divide into balls, let rest ten minute, make braids (however big you want them). Let double again. Brush loaves with egg. Bake at 350 degrees, until brown--it depends on how big you've made the braids.
Hope that all makes sense!! It isn't as confusing as it seems once you've done it.


Hannah is hosting a giveaway the prize is a blog design!  I am entering for a blog design for our family blog.  I hope that you go over and join!

A Delicious Recipe~

~Lime/Lemon Meringue Pie~

1 9-inch Baked Pastry Crust

1-1/2 cups sugar

3 tablespoons cornstarch

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1-1/2 cups water

3 slightly beaten egg yolks

2 tablespoons butter, cut up

1/2 to 2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel

1/3 cup lemon juice

3 egg whites

1 teaspoon lemon juice

6 tablespoons sugar


1. Prepare Baked Pastry Crust. In a medium saucepan stir together the 1-1/2 cups sugar, the cornstarch, and flour; gradually stir in water. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Gradually stir about 1 cup of the hot mixture into beaten egg yolks; pour yolk mixture into remaining hot mixture in saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil; cook for 2 minutes more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in butter and shredded lemon peel. Slowly stir in 1/3 cup lemon juice. Keep filling warm while preparing the meringue.

2. For meringue, in a large mixing bowl beat egg whites and 1 teaspoon lemon juice with an electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until soft peaks form. Gradually add 6 tablespoons sugar, beating on high speed about 4 minutes or until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves. Pour warm filling into cooled crust. Immediately spread meringue over filling, carefully sealing to edge of crust to prevent shrinkage*. Bake in a 350 degree F. oven for 15 minutes. Cool on rack for 1 hour. Chill 3 to 6 hours before serving. Makes 8 servings.Baked Pastry Crust

: In a medium mixing bowl stir together 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in 1/3 cup shortening until pieces are pea-size. Using 4 to 5 tablespoons cold water, sprinkle 1 tablespoon at a time over flour-shortening mixture until all the dough is moistened. Form dough into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 12-inch circle. Ease pastry into 9-inch pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim and flute edge. Prick bottom and sides well with fork. Line pastry with double thickness of foil. Bake in a 450 degree F. oven for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake 5 to 6 minutes more or until golden. Cool.Note

Bakers sometimes notice that their meringues "weep" after baking. The key is to spread the meringue over the pie filling while it's still very warm.

{Sewing Projects}

First just a random picture of my little sister that I thought was so cute!  The other day I had some more fun taking her picture :)

I had to take a picture of my new little capsule for holding my pins, it is so cute!

 Now for my sewing projects!  I have had a bag full of random things that need to be fixed just sitting around my room for awhile, so I decided that we were going to have an "Orderliness" meeting for Bright Lights, I should be a good example :).

I fixed moms clothes pin holder for her, and also this cute little skirt (I will take pictures of it when I am done)  if I would have been able to sew when I was younger it would have been nice.  I have had this skirt for some time now, but it's slit was not long enough to walk in.  I decided to take some extra fabric from around our house, rip the slit longer, and add the fabric into the slit like I have seen others do.   It is a very pretty pink color and goes perfect with the light brown skirt! Since the skirt is now too small for me,  I am fixing it up for the modest clothing exchange that our Bright Lights group is having on Nov. 1st.  I am very excited for the exchange it will be a lot of fun!

Psalm 127:3-5 (King James Version)

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
