Greetings from SNOWMEGGON!!
It’s been a very snowy march for me. Oh my! About three to four feet of snow in some areas. It’s the Berkshires of Massachusetts, so what do I expect. Sunny and 70 degrees. Oh not in March!!! Third Snowiest March on records at this moment. 🙂 Let’s get started
Here we go again. We are off to see Heidi and Lyle Troyer’s and their next adventure of cooking classes in the Amish Cooking Class: The Celebration by Wanda E Brunstetter.
Since we last saw the Troyer’s, they have welcomed in two foster children, Randy and Marsha, who have lost their parents in a tragic car accident. Both children are devastated with their lost, but feel safe at the Troyer’s. As long as the children, accept their new way of life and Heidi and Lyle, they may be adopted into their family. 🙂 Only time will tell how the children will adapt. In the mean time, Heidi feels that it would help the children if they had some interaction with some other kids in the area. This leads Heidi to open her doors once again to a cooking class. However, this time it is for children.
When Heidi begins her next round of cooking classes, not only do the children attend, but also their parents. We have Debbie and Kevin, who are the tiniest children next to to Heidi’s and whose mom is Miranda; Kassidy, who is the official class brat and her mother is Denise. Then we have two single parents, Ellen and Darren. Darren is a widower and he and his son, Jeremy are struggling with the lost of their wife and mother. And Becky is Ellen’s daughter. 🙂 Later on, we will meet the Troyer’s new neighbor, Velma, and her two younger children Peggy Ann and Eddie.
Each parent is struggling with ‘grown up’ issues; death, marriage separations, other marital issues, and family issues, etc. Through Heidi’s cooking classes and the precious verses she leaves on the back of the recipe cards, these help and speak to each individual differently, but give them much needed guidance in their current lives.
Will each parent receive the answers they need? Will they come to God for the answers? Will Heidi be able to keep these children that she dearly loves as her own? Well…. you just will have to grab a copy for yourself. If I continue, I may spoil this final installment of the Amish Cooking Class Series.
