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...

French Toast in a Mug!

Thank you CafeMom!  In this post, "Do You Blog?", I found this fabulous recipe for French Toast in a Mug on A Chick Who Can Cook!

Now, being me, you know I had edits on the board before I finished reading the recipe, because that's just what I do! :)

1 teaspoon room temperature Butter
1 egg
3 Tablespoons Milk
Sprinkle of Cinnamon
Drop of Vanilla
2 Slices of Bread
My Adds:
Sprinkle of Nutmeg
Spoonful of Neufchatel (Cream Cheese would work)
2 Tablespoons full of frozen blueberries
Spoonful of Instant Coffee  (yes, I do seem to love that stuff, don't I?)

My butter was not even close to room temp, since I keep it in the freezer, so I cut off an estimated teaspoon, and popped it in the cup in the microwave for about 30 seconds.  It was still rock hard, so I went another 30 seconds, and spread it around the inside of the cup with a spatula.

 Then I added the egg, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, instant coffee, and nutmeg to the cup and mixed well with my fork 

before adding the cream cheese and blueberries.

Bread was last - I cubed it, then mashed it down and mixed it well with a fork till it was all gooey :).

I zapped it in the microwave for 1 minute, but it wasn't done (maybe because of the cream cheese?), so I put it in for almost another minute by the time it cooked.

I skipped the syrup since I had cream cheese and blueberries, and it was absolutely delicious! :)

 Definitely a quick and easy recipe, but great tasting as well!  Kudos for this one! :)

  1. This morning I made it with half coconut oil/half butter, and with plain yogurt (that's my sour cream substitute) and strawberries instead of blueberries. The only issue was that the strawberries are so big, it was hard to get my bread all stirred into the liquid, but a little at a time got it done! Next time I'm going to try a spoonful of the peach lavender jam I made last year :).
