I’m not sure where I got the idea for making a smoked salmon quiche, but I must have seen it somewhere in France (and not been able to eat it since it would surely have contained gluten). I looked at a bunch of recipes, and they were pretty standard and self-evident since quiche-making always contains the same base (eggs-cream-cheese-often nutmeg).


One idea I got from researching, however, was t...

“have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, ‘My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.’ Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:5-7 & 11”
Jennie Goutet, A Lady in France

“And last, but not least, I had to abandon my autonomy in favor of obedience to God. That lesson was the hardest learned.”
Jennie Goutet, A Lady in France

“Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly! In the end it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper. Your eyes will see strange sights and your mind imagine confusing things. You will be like one sleeping on the high seas, lying on top of the rigging. ‘They hit me’ you will say ‘but I’m not hurt! They beat me, but I don’t feel it! When will I wake up so I can find another drink?’” Proverbs 23:31-35”
Jennie Goutet, A Lady in France
