A few years ago, when the Ruby for Women ministry was in the early stages of growth, we had a community website where Christian women could come together to chat, share ideas and inspiration, encourage one another, and just connect in a way that is just not possible through a blog or other social media. …

Favorite Things: Easter Traditions

We have made Hot Cross Buns on Good Friday for many, many years. Even though I’ve never learned how to make a pie crust, I’ve always been really successful with yeast breads.
