Ronda from~ The Family Table, brings us "Mexican Red Quinoa Salad"!

Hello Sky Moms,
(here is a great recipe that I thought would be awesome to revisit with the weather warming up...enjoy!)

Today at The Family Table, I am going to share with you an old family favorite, Mexican Quinoa Salad. This recipe uses a little known grain, Quinoa.  Prounced “keen-wa,” Quinoa is an ancient and delicious grain with a very mild flavor.  When mixed with a big, beautiful salad, it adds a protein punch to keep you going throughout the day. With the summer days being so hot, it makes a perfectly complete meal without having to heat up the kitchen.

Loaded with flavor, crunch, tang, zip and zest, this Mexican salad is bursting with yummy goodness. Talk about antioxidant overload! Give yourself plenty of time to do the prep for this one.  I can assure you, it is well worth the effort.   I like to cut the ingredients and keep them in individual Ziploc containers. When I am ready to make the salad, just toss the ingredients together.

This recipe makes a huge batch.   It holds in the refrigerator for several days making it ideal lunchbox food.  Presented on a large white platter, it makes an impressive buffet addition. You can easily make this salad for four or twenty by increasing or decreasing all of the ingredients. For the dressing, I make a big batch separately then drizzle over the salad to taste. Keep tasting and add more salad dressing ingredients as needed. You can’t go wrong with this one.

Mexican Red Quinoa Salad

1 cup red quinoa
2 cups water
1 bunch watercress, rinsed and all the leaves pulled from the stem
2-3 cups cabbage, shredded (buy the pre-shredded bag)
2-3 cups carrots, shredded (buy the pre-shredded bag)
1 bunch cilantro, washed and all the leaves pulled from the stem
1 small bag frozen, organic, sweet white corn
1/2-1 diced red pepper
1/2 diced jicama
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2-1 red onion, diced
3-5 green onions, diced, both white and green parts
1 cucumber, diced, leave skin on for extra nutrients, either Traditional or English work fine
1 bunch radishes, sliced and quartered
1 bag cooked, black beluga lentils from Trader Joes OR 1 can drained and rinsed black beans
2-4 limes, lemons or combo, juiced
1/2-3/4 cup olive oil
5 cloves garlic, minced

**honey to taste if you like a sweeter dressing.
salt and pepper to taste
avocado slices for garnish
tortilla chips for garnish

Additions per your taste: For those that like a punch, dice a seeded jalapeno pepper or add one teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the dressing.

Cook quinoa in water according to package instructions.  Add all the ingredients to a big bowl.  Mix olive oil, lime, cumin and minced garlic. Pour over salad and toss well. Taste and adjust lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Garnish with slices of avocado and/or high quality tortilla chips.

Note: Where recipe calls for 1/2-1 of some ingredient, feel free to judge based on the size of the produce on hand, how much to use. If I get a huge red bell pepper, 1/2 may be enough.  If it is small, I may use the whole thing.  Accordingly, if I am making the salad for a buffet, I will add two whole red bell peppers and increase the rest of the ingredients as well.  It is a pretty full proof recipe.

For a nice luncheon, make a big pitcher of iced, mint tea with lemon slices and serve with homemade chocolate chip cookies. Bon Apetit!

Psalms 128:3-4 (NIV)
“Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house;  your children will be like olive shoots around your table.  Yes, this will be the blessing  for the man who fears the LORD.”

SkyMoms in Wichita Falls!

Yesterday Sky Ranch SkyMoms were warmly welcomed into the home (even with a banner made by her Sky Ranch Camper :)) of a WICHITA FALLS SkyMom!  We all gathered  to hear about Sky Ranch and from Lisa Clark, Sky Ranch SkyMom Parenting Mentor about how we can all make the 
Summer of 2012 a "Summer to Remember"!

Don't forget to base your Summer on the scripture Luke 2:52
"And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man" to make it a more meaningful summer this year!

For Wisdom areas: Spend some time each week learning this Summer....maybe some flashcards to get ahead in a subject area that is a struggle for your little one.  And READ.  Make it your goal for your children to complete a novel or two this summer.  Readers are leaders!

For Stature areas: Get physical! Ride bikes, walk trails, or swim as a family!  Take on a nutritional goal as a family for the summer.

For areas of in favor with God:
Encourage spiritual growth.  Ensure your kids have a devotional or bible study to work through each day.  Maybe this is a good summer to start a family devotional study together! 

For areas of in favor with Man:
Finally, SERVE.  This is the best way to grow as a family and to grow in your relationship with God.  Each week, set aside time to serve someone in your neighborhood, or a family member or in your church family. Service is our outward expression of love for our Father. 

We left Wichita Falls and these fabulous ladies with great information ....ready to take on the Summer of 2012...and make it a SUMMER TO REMEMBER!

Teach Intentionally..."Family Time…God is your daily Guide", with Stacy Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Time…God is your daily Guide
Do you ever feel like you are running around in circles? Or are you so over-scheduled that your mind seems fuzzy with no clear direction? When I was a young Mom life was very busy and I often found myself feeling frazzled, but God tells you in scripture that life doesn’t have to feel like this. Life can feel focused and directed. This month the topic is still on God’s guidance and care for you and this week looks at God as a daily Guide. In Psalm 31, if you turn to God, He promises to lead and guide you and in Proverb 6, He tells you how…the solution is in God’s teaching that is passed on from a father and mother to their children. Did you see that? God wants you to pass on His Words to your kids. He did not list a person at the church or a friend to train your child. He knows the very best person to teach your kids… is YOU!
When my kids were young, they went to Sunday school and I reinforced the church’s teaching at home. I valued the teaching my kids received at church. But when my kids moved into middle school, they both suddenly refused to go to the middle school program at church. Both felt they did not know the kids and felt like outsiders; claiming that everyone went to other schools. So in order to prevent ”world war III” and not turn my kids away from the church by forcing them to go to class, my husband and I compromised and allowed them to join us in the main church service and I began teaching them at home with a family bible study. Our family started having weekly family times from fifth grade and has continued to this day, the impact has been huge! Family time has given us a platform to introduce important scripture topics and apply it to their personal lives, and it has often been a springboard into much deeper conversations. At the end of lower school, kids often stop talking to their parents and my kids were beginning to do that too. But God used the family time to open up conversations. There were struggles and bad attitudes during family time at first. But that did not stop our family time and I kept praying for my family, consistently meeting and over time bonding started to happen. My kids did eventually return to the church youth groups in high school, but we still continued the family time at home as well.
This week in your family time, I would encourage you to prepare by praying for your family and asking God to show you if your kids struggle with recognizing God as their daily Guide in life. Ask God to give you understanding of how to keep the family conversations open and trusting. Ask God to be a daily Guide and to teach you so can teach them. Pray that God will give you clear focus and direction for your family. Ask God to help you show your family that God is your daily Guide and He can be their daily Guide too. Allow God to be your source of direction and your kids will follow your example. Ask your family if they ever have confusion on making big or little decisions. If there is confusion, teach your kids to begin each day with a short prayer that asks God to direct the day and help them. God wants you to ask for His help, even if you think you have it all figured out. Encourage your family to recognize how God guides you each day and thank Him for it!
Do you need help or prayer for your family time? Email me at
I will be praying for you!

Teach Intentionally
This week we are in the 8th   Month Topic and  4th  Family Time (or page  72) of the Sky Ranch Devotional “Open Your Eyes”…
Family Time 4: 
Month 8 Topic: God is my Heavenly Father Who guides and cares for me…Daily guide
Talk with God: Read…Psalm 31:3, Proverbs 6:20-22
~ Psalm 31:3   For You are my rock and my fortress; for Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me.
  • In Ps 31:3, what will God do?
~ Proverbs 6:20-22  (20) My son, observe the commandment of your father, and do not forsake the teaching of your mother; (21) bind them continually on your heart; tie them around your neck. (22) When you walk about, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; and when you awake, they will talk to you.
  • In Prov 6:20-22, what has been given to us as a daily guide in life?
Walk with God: Discuss… What do we as believers have to help us and guide us?  How does God’s Word help us? Give examples from Scripture that have helped guide you.
Prayer suggestion… Pray for you to decrease so He can increase and be your guide.  Pray that you will move out of the way and totally rely on Him for guidance in your life.
Family Time 4: 
Leader Answers:
  • Lead; guide
  • Commandments (His Word); teaching
  • Discussion ideas: How about Exodus 20, the Ten Commandments? The Book of Proverbs tells about questionable people to watch out for. Revelation 1-3 divides the real Christian from the fake Christian. There is insight to guide us in every book of the Bible.

Prayer Encouragement: "A Good Busy" by SkyMom, Terrie Chevaillier

A Good Busy
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”  Proverbs 31: 27-29
We have been looking at Proverbs 31 to 
get a picture of what God’s Word says
about a Godly woman, wife, and mother.
Keeping in mind that there are do overs and much grace…
these passages give us a filter to run through in regards to
how we might be living out in our homes what we profess.
A Godly character…it causes us to become a 
sweet fragrance in our homes and our community.
Let’s pray God’s Word:
Dear Father, thank you that I do not have to go at 
these roles by just guessing what the standard might be.
You have provided a beautiful passage in Your Word that
Encourages me to become all that You have created me to be
and Your Word gives me great insight in my day in and day out living.
Please show me where I am not watching over the affairs of my household.
Am I too distracted by unproductive things or commitments that pull 
my watchful eye away from my home and family.
Help me to see where I am eating the bread of idleness.
Is it time on the computer or in front of the TV
or just not using my time wisely?
It grieves me to think my family might be suffering 
indirectly from my idleness.
Your Word says that when I watch over my household 
with love, diligent work, and caring concern
that my  children
and husband will respond to those things in positive ways.
Thank you that when I am obedient to Your Word
I can expect to see a good response from those in my home.
Even when they do not say anything or notice,
let it be enough that I know You see and will bless my efforts.
~Terrie Chevaillier

Sign up your camper to experience the Sky Ranch Intentional Plan...the Life Map!

Sky Ranch Summer Camp is now ONLY 33 days away...have you signed up your camper yet!  Sign up and allow your camper to experience the amazing Sky Ranch intentional plan..the LIFE MAP!

The Sky Ranch Life Map is what makes Sky Ranch Unique and holds us apart from other camps!
The Sky Ranch Life Map, our intentional plan for campers’ personal development, is fun with a purpose. It starts with a week of camp each summer when your children are younger, and then builds year on year, to help shape kids into servant leaders through our relevant leadership camps when they’re in their teens and even into young adulthood.

Personally having two girls go through the Life Map, has been "life changing"!  It has instilled Godly character traits that have built one upon the other from Summer to Summer that as a parent I can personally do them, say to do them day in and day out, but when they see these College aged kids actually living them selflessly for a week somehow it just "clicks"!  Kyndall and Sterling have come home each Summer CHANGED!

Leadership Camps

The COR Leadership Initiative (based on 1 Cor. 9:24-27) is a program designed to coach teens through the transitions of life by encouraging Biblical discipleship and teaching servant leadership. This camping curriculum is divided into three unique camps created especially for believers who want to dig deeper into their faith:
All participants in the COR Leadership Camps will receive a certificate verifying completion of their leadership training and a letter of recommendation from the Sky Ranch staff that can be used for job applications and college entrance.
The COR Leadership Initiative is a stair-step process, and as campers go through the program they will find the challenges increasing in difficulty and the Scriptural lessons continuing to build in comprehension. We welcome all youth to take part in this advanced leadership training program, and we will gladly help you find the camp that fits your appropriate stage of development.

Make 2012 a Summer to Remember!

Picture taken form Sky Ranch Ute Trail Family Camp

(this blog is a "Blast From the Past" from last summer...but too good not to Re-Post!)

Hey Moms! How many summers to do you have left with your kiddos at home?   3? 6? 9? 0? Oh no! Don’t cry! Get motivated to make this a summer to remember!

How many times have your summers come and gone and you say to yourself, “Well, that was fun but what did we do?  What did we accomplish?  I felt like a referee most of the summer!”

Many of us have been there.  Those 10-12 weeks go by very quickly.  Plan now to make each week special and intentional.  Here are some ideas:

Spend some time each week learning.  We don’t want our kids to lose what they’ve learned this school year, and we certainly don’t want them to be brain dead upon returning to school in August.  Spend some time, maybe an hour or two, each week working through old workbooks or maybe even pull out some flash cards.  This is especially important for those kids who struggle academically.  If nothing else, READ.  Make it your goal for your children to complete a novel or two this summer.  Readers are leaders!

Get physical! Ride bikes, walk trails, swim…but get outside as a family! Make physical activity a MUST each week.  Our kids are prone to stay inside and play video games.  Don’t let this be the highlight of your child’s summer.  Set limits on all electronics!  If your children are 14 or older, consider some kind of work opportunity for them.  Help them figure out how to get a job that is age appropriate.  Our children need to know what it means to work hard.  Before they graduate high school they need to have had a job…an employer…received an official paycheck.  It’s important!

Encourage spiritual growth.  Ensure your kids have a devotional or bible study to work through each day.  Maybe this is a good summer to start a family devotional study together! Check out the new “Open Your Eyes” Family Devotional guide for Sky Ranch Camps!!!  Also, continue to make church attendance and fellowship a priority over the summer. 
Finally, SERVE.  This is the best way to grow as a family and to grow in your relationship with God.  Each week, set aside time to serve someone in your neighborhood, or a family member or in your church family.  Visit a nursing home.  Bake cookies for a neighbor.  Take a meal to someone who is in need of encouragement.  Write a note to a grandparent.  Make a donation.  The opportunities for service are limitless.  Service is our outward expression of love for our Father. 

So, let’s make the summer of 2012 the best yet! Moms, you steer the ship of your home.  You might want to take your calendar out now and start plugging in dates/times to make sure these things happen! Before you look up it will be August and another school year.  God bless you!

Ronda from~ The Family Table, brings us "Maple Walnut Muffins"!

...somehow this blog post got lost in "blog space" somewhere, never posted (but I thought it did... and just came back ...

I can’t tell a lie... I have a big time weakness for baked goods. Especially homemade baked goods. I haven’t written about this before because I am trying so very hard not to bake. Baked goods and losing weight do not go hand in hand. But, because I also believe in moderation, I baked today! Boy did it feel good. There is something so meditative about baking. Pouring, measuring, mixing...Then the way the house smells; amazing.
Even though it is Spring in Northern California, we are having a cold, rainy Springbreak. Not the beach going, pool hopping week I was hoping for, but still a break. We have all been sleeping in way too late, and today we didn’t have breakfast until noon...big smile from me.... 
With the chill in the air and the late start, everyone needed a little comfort. Out came one of my all time favorite books, Sarabeth’s Bakery by Sarabeth Levine. This book is full of yumminess. I have been wanting to try the Maple Walnut Muffins for quite a while. First, it isn’t your everyday muffin.  Second, the combination of maple and walnut just sounds comforting doesn’t it? And lastly, I had all of the ingredients on hand so that sealed the deal. 
There isn’t a recipe that I don’t tweak in some way to make my own. I never follow a recipe to the letter and I think that is a piece of advice I’d give to any novice cook. Don’t be afraid to put your own unique spin on things. 
Maple Walnut Muffins
adapted from Sarabeth’s Bakery by Sarabeth Levine
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 cups pure maple syrup, Grade B 
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 large egg plus 1 large egg yolk at room temp
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flours, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Combine maple syrup, melted butter and buttermilk into another bowl. Whisk in the egg and egg yolk. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until just mixed. Stir in walnuts. Portion batter to muffin tin that has been coated with cooking spray. 
******Bake for 10 minutes then REDUCE OVEN TEMP to 375 degrees and bake until top of muffins are golden brown and toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean, about 10 minutes more. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then serve with softened butter and a nice big cup of coffee :)

Teach Intentionally..."Shepherd that cares for us", with Stacy Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Time…Shepherd that cares for us

Sometimes as a Mom it seems as though, you are caring for everyone else…but who cares for you? You are busy feeding, cleaning, listening, hugging and encouraging all of which is very needed and a huge blessing that you can give to others. But you need God’s input for all of your output! You need God to provide, give insight, wrap His arms around you and encourage you, before you can fully reach out to your family. Your relationship with God strengthens you. 2 Thessalonians 2:16 tells you that Jesus will strengthen and comfort your heart in every good work and word. God is referring to the extra strengthening that He provides from His Holy Spirit. God provides you with extra help especially when you think that you have nothing left to give during times of being tired, depressed or just worn out, God  really is there helping and caring for you.
I used to joke with my friends when my kids were little, that Mom doesn’t have time to get sick…Moms just don’t have that luxury! I would feel horrible from an illness, but had to keep going, because little kids don’t stop and neither can Mom. I would feel worn out and frazzled, but had to still help feed, clean, work on homework, drive to practices, smile, hug, and cheer them on! Many times, I just did not “feel” like using good words or doing the good work that God wanted from me…so how did I keep on going? I would cry out to God….and sometimes I really was crying with the prayer…and God would come through. God would give me the words and strength to get the job done. You do not have to go through this alone. Turn to God. Trust Him; He really will come through for you.
This week in your family time, I would encourage you to prepare by praying for your family and asking God if anyone questions if God truly cares for them. It is common for kids to question if such a big God can really love and care for them. Remind them of scripture that talks about how God knows even the number of hairs on your head and since He cares for the birds,  He promises that He does care for you too (Matthew 10:30). Encourage your family to think about where they turn when they want to quit. Do they quit? What encourages them to keep trying when they failed with their homework or a friendship? Do they think to ask God for help? Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  Teach your family that God is a loving God who cares about each one of them and wants you to ask Him for help. Encourage your family in the prayer time to list areas that need help and then as a group pray and ask God to help each of you. Try writing the prayer requests down and go back in a few months and notice the changes that God has made in your lives.
Do you need help or prayer for your family time? Email me at
I will be praying for you!

This week we are in the 8th  Month Topic and 3rd  Family Time (or page 71 ) of the Sky Ranch Devotional “Open Your Eyes”…
Family Time 3:
Month 8 Topic: God is my Heavenly Father Who guides and cares for me…Shepherd that cares for us
Talk with God: Read…Psalm 100:3-4
~ Psalm 100:3-4  Know that the Lord Himself is God; it is He Who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. (4) Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
  • According to this Scripture, what should our response be?
Walk with God: Discuss… How does a shepherd care for his sheep, and how are we the sheep of the Lord’s pasture?
He is The Almighty Shepherd.
Discuss what the shepherd does for the sheep.
  1. A good shepherd gives the sheep a sense of belonging.
  2. The shepherd should see that the needs of the sheep are met.
  3. The shepherd should not be a slave driver, but one who provides rest and guidance and leads his sheep.  
Prayer suggestion… Pray a prayer of thanksgiving that the Lord will guide and protect you.  Then pray a prayer of praise that He has done so.
Family Time 3: 
Leader Answers:
  • Thanks, praise, blessing
  • Discussion ideas: God cares for us. We can see it in many forms. In our physical needs of food, water, shelter, clothing. But what about our spiritual needs, emotional needs, companion needs, etc.? Discuss the less obvious ways that you have seen God’s care.

Prayer Encouragement: "SkyMoms Laugh at the Days to Come!" by SkyMom, Terrie Chevaillier

SkyMoms Laugh at the Days to Come!
Proverbs 31:25
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.

I absolutely LOVE this verse.
It is one that I can go to and immediately know if I am
operating in faith or fear.
Let’s pray God’s Word.
Dear Father, I deeply desire to be a woman of faith.
However, some days, my shield of faith is 
somewhat lopsided and not firmly fitted and in place and I am left exposed 
to the fiery darts of the enemy.  I allow
fear for the future of my children to reign in my heart over faith.
When this happens, it is MISERABLE.
On those days, I am clothed in despair, hopelessness, worry, anxiety, fret,
frustration, and just plain crazy thinking.
My desire is that even when the enemy is firing darts right and left,
that because of my faith in Your ability to work in ALL situations, 
I get to wear the clothes of strength and dignity.
The clothes of doubt, worry, and fear are just not attractive on me at all,
and I desire to throw them out of my closet as options to not
be worn again….period.  Gone.  Not even a choice for the day!
Instead, I want to wear laughter and a merry heart 
that looks at the future with a smile, and a confident trust.
I know that when I choose these garments, the atmosphere my home will be different because of what I am wearing.
Our drive to school will be different, my work will be different and so will my friendships and service.
Because, I will be a woman wearing faith and not fear!
Help me to put it on and not take it off as I laugh at the days to come!

Sky Ranch Counselors are the BEST of the BEST!

Sky Ranch Summer Camp is now ONLY 40 days away...have you signed up your camper yet!  Sign up and allow your camper to experience a Sky Ranch COUNSELOR...and your camper will never be the same!!

Sky Ranch is known for our amazing counselors! We have the privilege of recruiting the best and the brightest. These college-aged counselors are our campers’ Godly role models, heroes and friends. At Sky Ranch, rather than handing your kids off from counselor to counselor and activity to activity, the same counselors stay with your kids 24/7, allowing incredible bonding to occur through living, playing, learning, and facing challenges together. This around-the-clock relationship affords counselors more quality time with campers in one week than many families have together in months!
Campers see their counselors as contemporaries they aspire to emulate. Our counselors are solid examples of having an upbeat attitude even when you’re tired, hot and sweaty; being kind even when others may not be; keeping your emotions in check; asking for forgiveness when needed; and living in community. As Sky Ranch’s Parenting Mentor Lisa Clark says, “We’re up against cultural icons on television, in magazines, in sports and on the internet that our kids think are real. We need realistic role models in our children’s lives that have their ear. That’s what Sky Ranch counselors are.” Parents often marvel at the positive changes that occur in their campers in just one short week!
My girls Kyndall and Sterling, (ages 15, and 13) have formed lasting relationships with their counselors and many times have come home from Summer Camp telling us they want to be able to work at Sky Ranch when they are in college and lead others just as their Godly role model counselor led them into a relationship with the Lord that Summer! 
As a parent, knowing my girls are getting poured into for 7 days by counselors who are dedicated and committed to Christ is priceless!

SkyMoms are you Ready for Sky Ranch Summer Camp?

My girls are now running around in shorts, flipflops and requesting the new swimsuit they saw at department store!  My girls even took their first swim in our pool this past weekend!  Summer is ALMOST here and you know what that means.......The gates of Sky Ranch are close to opening!!   
 We are only 45 DAYS away from our first campers arriving for a fun filled 2012 Summer!
Have you registered your campers yet? REGISTER HERE
You do not want your camper to miss out on this amazing opportunity to unplug from the world, experience good, old-fashioned, outdoor fun in the beauty of nature. Yet camp goes far beyond just fun. To your kids, it may seem like they’re simply zip lining, horseback riding or bouncing each other off the Blob into the lake, but critical character-building strategies are built into every minute of every day at Sky Ranch. The Sky Ranch Life Map, our intentional plan for campers’ personal development, is fun with a purpose. It starts with a week of camp each summer when your children are younger, and then builds year on year, to help shape kids into servant leaders through our relevant leadership camps when they’re in their teens and even into young adulthood.
My girls love all the fun activities but each summer they share that the most meaningful time for them is growing in their personal walk with the Lord! 
So YES!! I am ready for Sky Ranch Summer Camp because , I can't wait to see the unfolding of the incredible Godly character traits my girls possess and the changes of maturity that this week allows my girls to experience each summer!
