Freshwater Academy

Fresh Water Academy was founded in 2010. It is home to four lovely young ladies of learning and their dedicated teachers. Located in the wilds of Wyoming, the name Fresh Water Academy was chosen as a Western analogy to Christ. Just as He is the Living Water, and we must have Him to have eternal life, any desert dweller knows the importance of fresh water to life, both for self, and the nourishment of crops or livestock. By taking nourishment in God and His word, we strengthen our own relationship with Him, our faith, and the quality and abundance of our fruitfulness.

Our keystone verse is from Jeremiah, Chapter 17, Verse 8: "For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."

The fruit that we speak of is mentioned in Galatians 5:22
"22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

And the heat could be anything we experience that might test our faith in God; trials and tribulations, relationships, anything that focuses our love and attention anywhere but on Him...

Broccoli Cheese Soup from The Pioneer Woman

Loved it!  Absolutely loved it.  This soup received rave reviews from my family.  On the show where I watched her make it, she used ham, but I had chicken, and then also added a pound of kielbasa, to fill out the soup and make it a more stick with you meal for the seven of us.  I didn't have any rolls to make bread bowls of, so I served it with big hunks of Everything French Bread, and a nice green salad.

Here's the recipe, and the website for one of the funniest and most entertaining personalities out there on TV and the world wide web today!
Her description says "My name is Ree. I'm a desperate housewife.
I live in the country. I channel Lucille Ball, Vivien Leigh, and Ethel Merman. Welcome to my frontier!"

The soup is wonderful, we enjoyed it very much!  It was a filling meal for our family of 7, and we even had some leftover for lunch today!  It's even good cold, for those of us who are too lazy to properly reheat!
