I’m not much of a “handyman”. But, like many of you, this quarantine time has my wife and I trying more DIY projects.  So, when I saw this idea for a coffee mug rack made from Pallet Wood online, I just had to try it!

It was much easier than I thought it would be, and I am LOVING the finished project.  CLICK HERE to see the finished project and watch a video to see how it was done.

JOYStory: A Bakery Is Giving Away Graduation Cakes!

JOYStory: A Bakery Is Giving Away Graduation Cakes!

A bakery is giving away hundreds of graduation cakes
800 graduation cakes. 12 schools. 5 weeks. That’s what it will take for Hanisch Bakery and Coffee Shop in Red Wing, Minnesota, to fulfill the graduation cake orders they received after a not-so-small act of kindness. Hanisch was thinking of the 200 graduating seniors in his town’s high school whose traditional commencement ceremony was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The thing “to do,” he decided, was to make each of them a free cake: a two-layer, round, 7-inch cake, decorated in school colors — purple and white. Word quickly spread outside Red Wing to neighboring Minnesota towns and across the river to towns in Wisconsin. Soon Hanisch was fielding calls from private benefactors, area businesses and school districts wanting to buy cakes for high school graduates in both states. Hanisch is only charging for labor and ingredients; he’s not making a profit. The farthest call came from Blooming Prairie, a town an hour’s drive away. Its bakery burned down back in January.

Mac Powell Of “Third Day” Steps Into A New Adventure

Mac Powell is heading out on another new adventure.  The former Third Day frontman posted: I’m so excited to tell you I’m joining the staff of Church of the Apostles in Atlanta as Artist In Residence! I’ll be helping with music throughout the week and singing there Sunday mornings when I’m not on the road touring. So thankful for the opportunity and I’m excited about being part of the church and learning from Dr Michael Youssef, whom I’ve admired for a long time. Please pray for me and the family during this transition and we’ll see you at church!
