Ronda from~ The Family Table, brings us "Simple Roast Chicken!"

The joy of simplicity. I love simple. As a matter of fact when life starts to spin out of control with too many obligations, the first thing I try to do is simplify. I think, like many of you, I can place more demands on myself than necessary. No where is this more true than in my kitchen. This week, with back to back tests, clinical shifts, baseball, basketball, homework etc, I have decided to rein it in and just focus on the basics in the kitchen. Tonight was my simple roast chicken. With only two ingredients in addition to the chicken, I don’t think it can get much simpler. 
Simple Roast Chicken
1 organic chicken
kosher salt
Line a dutch oven with foil and spray with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put chicken in roaster and sprinkle very generously with salt. Then, sprinkle with cornstarch. The outside of the chicken will be nice and white. You really want to make sure you are generous with the salt as this is the only flavoring on your chicken. Now pop it into the oven and roast for 15 minutes per pound or until the juices run clear. 

If you are feeling fancy, put a glug of white wine in the bottom of the pan, or stuff the cavity with a whole lemon that you have poked with holes. Toss a few garlic in there too. But the true joy is that this recipe, just the chicken, is delicious! It doesn’t need anything else! 
Let the chicken rest for about 10-15 minutes and then use an electric knife to carve. Slice the breast into very thin slices and you will have the most succulent, tasty goodness you can imagine! 
I try to get the biggest chicken I can, but it never seems big enough. The family just gobbles this bird up and they always say it is one of their favorite meals. The left overs are great over greens, made into chicken salad or just thrown in a tortilla with cheese and salsa. 
When I am really stressed, I will make a huge batch of mashed potatoes at the beginning of the week as a time saver. I then pick a few easy to roast veggies and dinner is on the table in a snap. 
For a quick gravy, Better Than Gravy Packets are very good and go great with this chicken and over the potatoes. If I have more time, I will use the drippings and make my own. But with such a good product, I love it to use it to round out this meal.
SkyMoms, I hope you all have a great week and would love to hear some of your very quick, easy meals!
Blessings and Happy Cooking! Ronda from The Family Table :)

Prayer Encouragement: "Why SkyMoms Pray God's Word" by SkyMom, Terrie Chevaillier

Why SkyMoms Pray God's Word

The rain and the snow come down from heaven and stay on the ground to water the earth.  They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with My Word.  I send it out, and it always produces fruit.  It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
Isaiah 55:10-11 (NLT)

As I encourage SkyMoms to pray God's Word, I thought it might be good to offer a few reminders of why we do that this  week and the weeks to follow.

Praying His Word acknowledges His plan and purpose for our children and gives us the certainty that we are praying His Word over our own limited and sometimes simple plans and hopes for their future or current situation.

His Word brings peace to our hearts and acknowledges His sovereignty as we lay down our mom sovereignty.....acknowledging that the I AM is in charge and knows more than we could left to ourselves.   Peace should come in and chase away anxiety and fretful doing.

When His Word is hidden in our hearts, the Spirit prompts and  guides us with the truth of what to pray.  When a scripture comes to your mind...that is His prompting to believe and stand on that promise or take that course of action.  These moments are not coincidence....they are invitations to pray His Word.

Let's pray Isaiah 55:10-11
Father, thank you for Your Word that is written and available. Just like the rain and snow that refresh and nourish the earth, let Your Word refresh my heart as I lay down the "dry places" in the lives of my children to Your Sovereign care.

Your Word is Your will for my child.  I want to be a mom who agrees with your Word and not my own...or the word of the world.

I want to see all of the sweet fruit in their lives as I cultivate a heart that prays and believes Your Word for them.

You say that when  Your Word goes out, that it will accomplish everything that You want it to.  There is so much amazing truth that I want to watch for as my child grows.  Just like a seed planted in the ground that does not produce an immediate blossom, I desire that my prayers so agree with Your Word that even when I feel the answer is isn't.  Even if it takes months or years, I want to believe that as I have battled in prayer Your Word for my children....that I WILL see blossoms and buds that scatter and spread everywhere they tread and touch every area of their lives.

You don't say it sometimes produces fruit....You say it ALWAYS produces fruit.

Lord, I want to trade your Word for my own words.  Lead me to know the truth and then believe it in prayer for my children.

Teach Intentionally..."Family Time…Love like God loves", with Stacy Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Time…Love like God loves

You might be thinking “I can’t love like God loves!” and you are right, on our own, it would be really tough to love like God loves. But I am very grateful that God does not ask His people to do this feat on their own. He sends us help! Scripture tells us that God has given us His Spirit to help us. God tells us throughout scripture that His Holy Spirit helps those that follow Him to remember things, to understand His Word (scripture), He tells us what we are to say, He gives us strength to do it and He even gives us a desire to obey the things that He tells us in scripture. Awesome, isn’t it! In John 16:7, Jesus told us that He would send us the Helper and that is what the Holy Spirit does…helps! This special help is for all Christians who follow Jesus as a lifestyle, however, we always have a choice and we can make the wrong choice and not listen or accept His help. But life goes much smoother when you listen!
As a Mom, I watched my kids struggle with showing God’s loving-kindness to each other, especially in middle school. The middle school years can be very tough years for kids because other kids can be so mean to your kids. My daughter had a particular group at school and they were just were not being nice. Girls can bully in so many ways, usually by excluding others. My daughter and I took it to God. He gave us the idea to start praying for each person’s heart to change in this group and we asked that He would help both of us desire to showing loving-kindness to them. God did help our desire to show them compassion even in the midst of their bullying. We kept praying. In time, we could see that God began to change their hearts too. Most kids just want to be accepted and often if you are being rejected, your first impulse is to lash out at someone else, hoping it helps. But, it never does. Sometimes you have to learn to deny your own pity party and learn to selflessly show kindness to another.
This week in your family time, I would encourage you to prepare by praying for your family and asking God to help your family love like He does. How much compassion is there in your family? And look at how your family handles anger. Is your group slow to anger? Are there outbursts of anger often? Remember to keep giving your kids and husband hugs and telling them that you love them too! It is those selfless acts of compassion and kindness that can impact the hearts and break down the walls, even in the difficult moments. As a Mom, think about a time that you could have reacted in anger at a situation, but instead you chose to show compassion and mercy and it caused a positive outcome. Consider sharing that in your family time. You are a role-model for your kids. Encourage them to think of times that they have handled anger correctly. If there are not many times, make a group decision to start handling anger correctly and work on this together. Encourage each other and praise them often when they are doing the right thing!

This week we are in the 6th Month Topic and 3rd Family Time (or page  55) of the Sky Ranch Devotional “Open Your Eyes”…
Family Time 3:
Month 6 Topic: God is love…Love like God loves
Talk with God: Read…Exodus 34:6, 1 Chronicles 16:34, Psalm 36:7
~ Exodus 34:6  The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness  and truth;  Who keeps  loving-kindness  for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin.
  • In Ex 34:6, how much loving-kindness does God have?
~ 1 Chronicles 16:34  O give thanks to the Lord, for [He is] good; for His loving-kindness is everlasting.
  • In 1 Chr 16:34, when will His loving-kindness end?
~ Psalm 36:7  How precious is Your loving-kindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
  • In Ps 36:7, because of His loving-kindness, we can do what?
Walk with God: Discuss… Can you love like God loves? We are to imitate Him. We can probably be compassionate and gracious at times. But are you slow to anger? Anger can be a challenge for all of us. I am very glad God is slow to anger, are you? Do you show that same kindness to others? What are some ways to help slow your anger down and show the mercy that God shows?
Prayer suggestion… Thank Him for loving you with His endless love!  Ask Him to increase your ability to love others as He loves you.
Family Time 3: 
Leader Answers:
  • It is abounding
  • Never
  • Take shelter in Him
  • Discussion ideas: Anger is tough. Anger is the result of feeling that you have been treated unjustly. A common response to anger is revenge, but God tells us that we are not to seek revenge; vengeance is His (Romans 12:19). Examples of handling anger correctly are pray, make sure you know the facts correctly, talk calmly to each other.  Matthew 18:15 defines a Biblical way to handle disputes, forgive and show mercy.

Prayer Encouragement: "Talking, Walking, Sitting, Standing, Lying Down= Continually" by SkyMom, Terrie Chevaillier

Talking, Walking, Sitting, Standing, Lying Down= Continually
 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.   Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up
Deuteronomy 6: 6-7

This will be the last prayer encouragement with the sweet little heart picture.
I hope that as you go about loving your children, this picture helps you 
remember scripture that teaches us just how to love them best.
We’ve prayed that we would understand that the little feet are bound 
with foolishness when they are born so they need discipline.   We have prayed about how
we are to teach and train the feet to stay on the right path.
This last encouragement is on just when and where to do that teaching  and training.
Capture the vision of the picture with a father’s hands and a mother’s hands
encircled around the child’s feet with a command to teach and train
while talking, walking, sitting, standing, and lying down.
Let’s pray God’s Word:
Father, thank You that I am not left alone to teach my precious children.
Your commandments written in Your Word direct me and guide me.
I cannot impress them on my children’s hearts if they are not impressed on my own heart.
Show me where I need to grow in the knowledge and truth of Your Word.
Guide me as to how to talk to them in our home.  Help me to use idle time
and capture it for spiritual training.
Help me to take courage and limit social media, and video game time to name a 
few and lead me to take the harder way which requires saying no to the 
world a little bit more so that I can talk to them about eternal things.
Show us what is stealing and taking away our time to talk.
Show us time for walks and help open our hearts for 
great conversation about Your Word.  When we get in the car
in the mornings or on the way home from school, prompt me
in my Spirit to just how I can love them best
while we drive to and from place to place.
Help me to be intentional with the time in the mornings to not only feed them
physical food and pack great lunches, but also to feed them spiritual food that
will sustain them throughout the day.
Where we are too busy for this teaching and training to take place, 
convict our hearts and lead us to Your mercy and grace and to Your way….the best way.
I pray that we would take every opportunity given to lie down with them at the end of the day,  if not for  
Just a minute and focus on Your many blessings throughout the day and then give You thanks and 
Dear Father, I ask that you bless these times of the day and that nothing would be 
greater to us as SkyMoms than giving out Your Word throughout the entire day.

Teach Intentionally..."Family Time…Seeing Jesus’ love in you", with Stacy Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Time…Seeing Jesus’ love in you

Start this week by hugging your kids again and telling them that you love them. I want to encourage you to do this often and do this for your husband, too. They all need to hear it often, plus it is Valentine Week. God tells us in scripture that this act of showing God’s loving-kindness to others does help define Christians. It sets you apart. 1 John 4:7-8 tells us to love one another for love is from God and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God…for God is love.
As a Mom, I did not think about hugging my kids, above and beyond the normal events of special moments of gift giving, achievement or celebration. I am not a “huggie” person. My family that I grew up in did not hug much beyond the normal moments either. However, parental hugging and saying “I love you” are easy ways to show God’s loving-kindness for another person. One day it occurred to me around the time that my son was entering the middle & high school years that he seemed to hug awkwardly. You might question, what middle or high school boy doesn’t hug awkwardly? And you are right, most do. I wondered…how would this affect him as he leads his own family some day? So, I prayed and sought God’s guidance of how to help him. Then God gave me the idea to encourage him by teaching a healthy way to display loving-kindness by telling him that “I loved him” and asking for a hug each morning before he went to school. And do you know…by the time that he left for college, he was a changed man. The stiff awkwardness left and he easily hugged and said, “I love you” back! It had worked!
This week in your family time, I would encourage you to prepare by praying for your family and asking God to show you if any of them struggle with showing God’s loving-kindness. Think about the fact that you are raising the next generation of Moms and Dads…and how they are taught will affect their families as well. Teach them to share Jesus’ love with their words and actions. Today one way to define Jesus’ love is kindness. Ask God to show you if you struggle with showing God’s love and ask how He can help you teach your own kids. In the Family Time for this week, there is a list of ideas in the leader answers of ways to show kindness by actions or even things that can be stopped from action. But, what about your thoughts as opposed to actions…ask your family if their actions begin with their thoughts about a person? Often your behavior towards someone else starts with your opinion of them.  Help your family work on their own hearts, by asking the Holy Spirit to reveal to each person, if they have hurtful ways towards themselves or others (Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts;  24  And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way). Then, if any are revealed, ask God’s direction for the correct thoughts and attitudes towards others. Also, remember that change will not happen overnight, it does take time and a lot of encouragement from you. Each time you see an effort in kindness from your kids or even your husband, praise them and encourage them.

  • In John 13:34, Jesus commands what?
~ Galatians 5:22-23  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

  • Love one another
  • Love
  • Life and loving-kindness
  • Discussion ideas: We often think of the obvious things like feed or shelter the needy or give money to or care for someone who is hurt, build someone up by encouraging.  But what about the less obvious things like a wife who doesn’t say that mean, nagging thing to her husband, or a husband who doesn’t criticize his wife’s housekeeping style? Love can be shown in the things we refrain from saying, too. Any other ideas?

Prayer Encouragement: "This heart and these feet need training" by SkyMom, Terrie Chevaillier

This heart and these feet need training:
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Proverbs 22:6

I feel that this picture captures a thousand words
that I want to encourage SkyMoms to pray for their children this month.
Allow it to imprint in your mind as you seek and pray for 
vision in regards to your parenting.
These little feet and this little heart come with a biblical command:
Who:  the child
What: train
Where: in the way he should go
When:  starting at birth and continuing on
And here’s the promise:
Why: so that when he is old, he will not turn from the Way.
Let’s Pray:
Thank you Father for the little feet and big feet that pitter patter love 
all throughout my house.
Please show me exactly how to train them so 
they will walk Your path here on this earth
until they pass over into Your arms for eternity.
Thank you that Your Word leaves me with all the answers in how to do just that….
Help me to not assume that it will all be learned and taught in 
church or Christian school
as You tell me that I am to teach them.
Thank you for the promise that comes with that….
I train and they are less likely to stray…
And if they do….I believe they will come back.
What peace this gives us as we send our
children off into the world.
Help us to be SkyMoms who do not fall to the temptation of
worry and fret about their future
because they have been trained 
in the truth and the Word at home…
Lead us to parent with few if not any regrets.

Teach Intentionally..."Family Time…Love changes us", with Stacy Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Time…Love changes us

Hug your kids and tell them you love them today! I am not just saying this because it is February and Valentine’s Day is around the corner. In the Sky Ranch Devotional for this month the scripture focus is on God’s love. God coordinated this topic to be covered in this month, I didn’t. Isn’t that cool! God is love so what does He say about love? How does He define love? Scripture teaches several different definitions of love depending on the original words in scripture and the definitions can vary from desiring the highest good for another, giving up your personal wants or needs for others to kindness, friendship or brotherly love, and compassion. This is God’s definition of love in scripture. Is this how our secular world defines love in music, TV, video, movies, etc? NO. When God sent Jesus, God desired your highest good, and your belief in Jesus changes you so that you will share the same love that God has. 
I actually lived this experience.  God’s love changed me. When I was young, I started out life with a big heart. I was kind and loving, but as I aged, something changed and I grew more cynical by my teens. You might be thinking, isn’t that backwards from the topic? Yes, it is. But it is real life. Sometimes life can harden you, this hardening can be from disappointment in yourself or others or anger, bitterness from lack of forgiveness. Any of these can creep into your life. There are many things that can cause it. By college it got even worse, until I surrendered to Jesus and wanted Him to be in control in my mid-twenties. Then, in time, as God’s Spirit worked in my heart, I began to soften and love began to change me. Instead of encouraging mocking other or tearing them down to make me look good, I began to have more compassion and the loving-kindness that God gives. My husband noticed and my family noticed. In others, God’s loving-kindness began to heal the damage that I had created with my words. I saw God’s love changes me in a good way and help my relationships with others. 
This week in your family time, I would encourage you to prepare by praying and asking God to show you how you define love and how your family defines love. Your kids may be confused by the very different definition that our culture sends on love. Spend time talking to your kids and listen to their definition of love. If their age is appropriate ask them, how they would define the love mentioned in music, and movies? Is it the biblical definition of love? Hopefully, you will be able to share the differences and then approach God’s Word with a clearer understanding of God’s message on love. As a Mom, explaining how Jesus showed love for you and your family by laying down His life on the cross, will help your kids connect God’s love for them.  Share how this very important act of loving-kindness helps you understand this awesome God that you choose to follow. Ask your family, what life would have been like if Jesus had never laid down His life for yours? Remember the Christmas movie “It is a wonderful life” and the point was to look at the man’s life and see how it looked if he had never lived. Consider what our world would look like if Jesus had never lived and given up His life for you…would you have any hope? What would you be like if Jesus did not change your heart to love like He does? Then talk through the study and share in the discussion section how has Jesus’ gift changed you?

Prayer Encouragement: "Confession: A Beautiful Thing" by SkyMom, Terrie Chevaillier

Confession:  A Beautiful Thing
If we confess our sins, 
He is faithful and just
 and will forgive us our sins 
and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:19

This past month, we have been asking the Lord to show us great and mighty
things that we could not figure out on our own. 
We have asked the Lord to deal with “not my child…no way” 
attitudes in our hearts and be on the lookout and watch tower
of God’s Word and faithfulness to guide us where we
come up empty in regards to what is going on in the little worlds, 
hearts, minds, and social circles our children move and live in.
Heavy stuff…sort of, but releasing and comforting…most definitely!
Have you been able to take “you” out of the equation and ask
God to shine light on things that have left you
frustrated and fretful.  I hope so.  I know personally that I 
have experienced tremendous peace when I have laid it to rest in His
Heavenly arms of protection and provision for answers.
For some of us, this might have meant uncovering sin patterns or struggles
that we had no idea our children were tied up in.
I talked to a mom the other day who had gained so much peace and revelation
as she asked the Lord to show her an area where her child was struggling.
What came out of it…confession, an opportunity for her child to stand up
and demonstrate integrity, it brought reconciliation of a friendship, 
it caused like-minded parents to unite and praise and glorify God.
Confession brought beautiful things.
It’s aftermath…peace, wholeness, sweet sleep, and hearts of trusting God
over carrying bitterness and revenge toward friends.
So, if during this month of praying for God’s divine revelation
regarding things we could not figure out, brought to light
sin in your children….rejoice and lead them through confession.
Let’s Pray:
Your Word tells us to confess.  I cannot teach my children about
confession if I am not obedient to it.  Please shine light on 
unconfessed sin in my own life. Where I need to confess and say
“sorry…I didn’t handle this or that so well”…give me courage.
Help us to teach our children that You are faithful and they should not fear
us as parents or anyone else.  Help them to know that You
are just and that You will lead us as parents to 
deliver consequences where they need to be given and minister
grace where it needs to be given.
Not only do we get forgiveness of sins but we 
also get to experience purification from the unrighteousness
that disobedience caused.
How beautiful is purification because it brings hope, love,
joy, restoration, sleep, trust, and redemption.
Father, please help us as Skymoms to continually be on the lookout
this year for where the enemy would like to steal, kill, and destroy.
Deliver us from fear and give us faith instead, to trust these sweet
precious children to a loving Father.
Confess, and be purified!
It’s available and free…we just need to ask.

Prayer Encouragement: "Believe it or not…foolishness is bound up in this heart!" by SkyMom, Terrie Chevaillier

Believe it or not…foolishness is bound up in this heart!

Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child;
The rod of discipline will remove it far from him.
Proverbs 22:15
Throughout the month of February, I would like 
to encourage Sky Moms on how to prayerfully LOVE their children well.
We will use this precious little picture each week to 
remind us just what our “calling” is in regards to loving
these precious little and big bundles of love 
the Lord has placed in our homes and hearts!
To love also means to discipline.
To discipline your children shows obedience to God.

So Let’s Pray God’s Word:
Father, it is really hard to imagine that foolishness
Is bound up in the heart of these sweet little feet.
However, Your Word says it is.
Forgive me for wondering what is wrong when my children
don’t act perfect or perform perfect or speak perfect.
It’s not always a reflection on me… you say they are born foolish.
But maybe sometimes it is a reflection on me.
Where have I not disciplined in obedience to Your Word?
How and when have I spared the rod?
And Lord, what is the rod….please show me.
It is hard to believe that to love them well
would mean using a rod of discipline.
Is the foolishness we are dealing with sometimes day in and day out in our home
the result of something I have spared?
I would really like to see (_____________)
be driven away and out of their hearts and away from our home.
If it involves discipline that I have withheld, Father please
lead me into all truth and help me to have the 
courage to obey.
My heart wants to love well, but my mind and the world
sometimes tell me other ways of loving them well
which usually means letting them have their own way.
Ready my heart this month to learn what it means to love Your way.
Thank You for Your Word that will show me as I open my
heart and mind up to read it and see.
~Terrie Chevaillier, SkyMom Prayer Encourager
