Educating All God's Children: Opportunity in Marion Tuesday, November 5th at 5:30pm

We have a fantastic opportunity in Marion this Tuesday, November 5th.  Indiana Wesleyan is hosting an event - an interview with Q&A - with author Nicole Baker Fulgham, who wrote Educating All God's Children: What Christians Can -and Should- Do to Improve Public Education for Low Income Kids

This event is FREE and open to the public.  It is from 7:00pm - 8:00pm at IWU in the Student Center in the Globe Theatre.  

For more info, see below.  To register, contact SARA BRADY at  765.677.2437 or

The School of Teacher Education and the John Wesley Honors College at Indiana Wesleyan University are jointly sponsoring a symposium this coming November featuring author Nicole Baker Fulgham, author of the book, Educating All God’s Children: What Christians Can—and Should—Do to ImprovPublic Education for Low-Income Kids. Jim Wallace, president and CEO of Sojourners, calls Fulgham’s book “A compelling call to a new generation of Christians to fight poverty and injustice through committing themselves to education.”  Jerry Pattengale, IWU assistant provost, wrote that “Educating all God’s Children convincingly shows scriptural mandates for closing the educational gap between low-income areas and wealthier communities.  Apart from Christ and education, most disenfranchised students will never know the abundant life God created them for.”

The Author
Nicole Baker Fulgham is president and founder of The Expectations Project, a national organization that mobilizes people of faith to support public education reform and close the academic achievement gap. She is the former vice president of faith community relations at Teach for America, has appeared on CNN and ABC News, and was named to the list of “50 women to watch: Those Most Shaping the Church and Culture” by Christianity Today.

The symposium is open to IWU students and faculty, and Marion Community Schools teachers and administrators who are concerned about the gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ in American society, and, as Christians, feel a responsibility to do something about it.  Symposium activities include a series of chapter discussions leading up to a banquet, followed by an author interview.  There will be time available for symposium participants to interact with the author in a question-and-answer session.

∙     The symposium banquet is on Tuesday, November 5 in the Barnes Student Center Henry West Banquet Room, beginning at 5:30 p.m.  The author interview begins at 7:00 in the Globe Theater, followed by the Q&A session at 7:30.

Who to Contact; Deadline
Please RSVP your interest in the book discussion series, the banquet, or both to Sara Brady in the Teacher Education Office by email at, or by phone at x2437.

Pumpkin Bars...YUMMY!

It's FALL!  My youngest and I went on a field trip with his preschool on Friday to Campbell's Pumpkin Patch.  Lots of fun, and yummy pumpkin bars.  He loved them and asked me to make some at home.  As good as the ones are at Campbell's, I think these may be even better.  :)  Make these, and thank me later.  :)

From the FOOD NETWORK with my minor edits

Pumpkin Bars

4 eggs
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup canola oil
15-ounce can pumpkin
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white whole wheat four
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda


8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
little milk to reach spreadable consistency


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Using an electric mixer at medium speed, combine the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until light and fluffy. Stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix at low speed until thoroughly combined and the batter is smooth. Spread the batter into a greased 15 by 10-inch baking sheet. Bake for 28 minutes. Let cool completely before frosting. Cut into bars.

To make the icing: Combine the cream cheese and butter in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the sugar and mix at low speed until combined. Stir in the vanilla and mix again. Spread on cooled pumpkin bars.

Kelloggs Monsters U Promo... kind of fun!

Okay, I realize that is one of these things I sort of (embarrassingly) got sucked into as a mom, but I figured I'd blog about it anyway.  :)

If you're a fan of Kelloggs MiniWheats, you might want to check out their promo on Monsters U.  Each box of MiniWheats you buy has a code on the inside of the box.  If you go to the website and enter your code, you can use the codes to "purchase" Monsters U Stuff.  4 codes/boxes of cereal gets you a Mike (from Monsters U) pillowcase, 6 codes gets you a ticket to the Monsters U movie (which is really cute if you haven't seen it).  My boys saw this promo on the back of the box earlier this summer, and we've been collecting codes.  We just got to 8 (yes, we eat a lot of cereal at our house), so I entered them in and just ordered 2 pillowcases - one for each of my kiddos.  They are quite excited.  :)  It was not a big deal to create a registration on the Kelloggs site, and easy to enter the codes, and there wasn't even a shipping or handling cost (I was shocked!). 

Right now at Meijer the VALUE SIZE Box of MiniWheats is $2.97/box, and Meijer is having a buy 4, get 1 box free deal, getting you 5 boxes of cereal and a Mike pillowcase (with a code to spare!) for $12.  Admittedly, not the most frugal thing I've done as a mom, but sort of fun nonetheless.   :)

Indiana Beach - GREAT deal through 7/31 only on 2013/2014 Season Pass

I've never been to Indiana Beach, my my kids' church group is going next week and my husband is going along since my kiddos are little.  Today, Wednesday, 7/31 until 3pm ONLY they're running a deal for $45.95 for a season pass for the rest of 2013 and all of 2014.  Included with the pass are 4 day passes for 2014.  This is a GREAT deal, as it will be $35.95 for a ONE day pass for my husband, and this way he gets to go this year and we'll ALL get to go next year with his 4 extra day passes for 2014 (which include the rides and the waterpark).  I read reviews on YELP, and it sounds like this is a quaint old-school amusement park, and I think my kiddos will be perfect ages for the next few years to enjoy.

Meijer BOX TOPS Bonus Coupon - $ for your kid's school!

Does your kid's school collect BOX TOPS?  My son's school does a competition for BOX TOPS each semester - the class that brings in the most wins a pizza party.  He looks for these things everywhere!  He's yet to have his class win, even though we always seem to be collecting these things!  I'm hoping with this deal (below) we might get the pizza party this year (very exciting when you're six)!  I stocked up on yogurt tubes for his lunches (we freeze them & they're ready by lunch & still cold), ziplock bags, Greek Yogurt, etc., and got my bonus Coupon! 

Right now at Meijer, through 9/7/13, buy 10 participating products and get a coupon for 60 bonus BOX TOPS!  Items you can purchase include Yoplait GREEK 100 calorie yogurt for $.99, so if you get 10 of those, you'll spend just under $10 and your school will earn $6 in box tops from the coupon!  What a deal! 

Have 20 products?  Do them in two separate transactions and you'll get 2 coupons worth 60 box tops each!    For the entire list of products that are included, click here.  (Hint, you can pull this list up on your phone while you're shopping for extra help!)

Uniforms are on sale also - I highly recommend the khaki pants for boys - they are cute & sturdy and withstand a LOT of washes!  They seemed to stain less than the Old Navy ones I got for my son last year - worth the money!

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins.... Yummy.

'Tis the season for zucchini, which always seems like an "all or nothin'" kind of veggie.  I either have none, or way too much!  :)  I do whatever I can with it this time of year, and then shred and freeze the rest for baking throughout the winter - it defrosts up fine for zucchini bread (I freeze it in 1 cup amounts). 

I discovered a new recipe tonight that my family loved, and I recommend, so I wanted to pass it along.  The original recipe was from, and I modified it slightly.

Original recipe makes 12 muffins - I recommend doubling it!  
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cups all-purpose flour (unbleached)
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk (or evaporated milk, or sweetened condensed...whatever you have)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup shredded zucchini
1/2 cup chocolate chips 

Cook at 350 degrees for 20 mins in muffin tins.  Yummy.

Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites.... YES!

Frozen Banana Bites // neverhomemakerOkay, just made my first batch, and these will definitely become a staple in our house.  :)

Quick, easy, and yummy.  Not too terribly bad either if you use natural peanut butter & unsweetened coconut.  This recipe is from another blog I found, the "Never homemaker".  


What you'll need . . .

  • 2 large bananas
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes

Method . . .

  1. Set out a large plate or bowl with a piece of parchment or wax paper on it.
  2. Cut up the bananas into good-sized chunks. Each banana should give you around 5 to 6 pieces.
  3. Heat the peanut butter and chocolate chips in the microwave on high for about a minute. Then stir until smooth.
  4. Dip the banana pieces in the chocolate-peanut butter mixture. Lay them out leaving some space between them on the parchment/wax paper. Then when you've "covered" them all, use the remaining mixture to spoon over the tops (for even more chocolate-y goodness).
  5. Then sprinkle the unsweetened coconut flakes on top. Transfer to the freezer for about an hour until hardened.
  6. You can enjoy them like this (but they really aren't frozen yet -- and when they're frozen, the banana tastes like vanilla ice cream) . . . I suggest then covering with some plastic wrap (or really you can do all of this in some kind of Rubbermaid container) and let freeze overnight.

INKGARDEN Sale on Customized Tote Bags - $3.99

My little men love anything with their name on it.  I think these might be fun to help with organization (swim lessons, soccer practice, overnight bags, etc.) on my end and theirs.

INKGARDEN is having a sale for $3.99 per bag (shipping is $4.99 for the first bag & $1.49 for each additional bag).  I've used INKGARDEN before and they make quality products that are a lot of fun.
Sale is through 7/21 and you need the code Flash.
Interested in their other products?  Before you order, sign up for their email and you'll get a coupon for 25% of your order! 

Bonus Idea:  Have any birthday parties coming up?  These would make neat gifts (that can hold another gift) for kiddos.  Try to think ahead and order several at once so you can save on shipping as each additional shipping item is only $1.49 after the first bag.

College Wesleyan Vacation Bible School - June 17th - 21st (9am - noon)

Vacation Bible School

We have a special program this summer for your children. Instead of doing Summer’s Cool, the church has decided to do a Vacation Bible School program called Kingdom Rock. It will be for those children who have completed kindergarten through 5th grade this year. Our desire is to reach out to the spiritual needs of the kids in our church and local community.

College Wesleyan's VBS is next week.  If you have a kiddo Kindergarten - 4th Grade, you can register them online at:

"At Kingdom Rock, kids will discover how to stand strong for God! They will be learning all about various Bible characters and the strength they showed when doing what God called them to do. There will be team-building games, cool Bible songs, theater shows, science experiments, tasty treats, and more. We would love to have your kids be a part of this great, FREE, event! Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. (Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes). Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life – something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!
Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project, through a program called Operation Kid-to-Kid, that will let the kids in our community show God’s love to children in India. Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us in the “Royal Courtyard” section each day in the sanctuary because that’s when we’ll be having Fanfare Finale – a daily celebration of God’s love you won’t want to miss."


Be sure to join us for a great time; June  17-21 9:00-noon
