Honey Nut Cheerios and our honey bees #BringBackTheBees

On April 25, 2016 General Mills announced that they are going to work with Oat farmers that supply oats for Honey Nut Cheerios.



They stated that by the end of 2020, oat farms will host approximately 3,300 total acres of dedicated flower-rich pollinator habitat. Bees are becoming more and more important in our society.

Bees have experienced an unprecedented scale of habitat loss with more than 9 million acres of grass and prairie land converted to crop land since 2008. Although Honey Nut Cheerios famous spokesbee, Buzz Bee, and his honey bee friends may not be in danger of extinction like some other pollinators, in the interest of protecting our food supply, Honey Nut Cheerios is committed to helping all pollinators thrive through the planting of these habitats.


With this Honey Nut Cheerios commitment, General Mills is now one of the largest corporate contributors to pollinator conservation. Large-scale habitat projects have already been planted or are currently underway on farms supplying ingredients to Muir Glen, Cascadian Farm, LĂ„RABAR and Annie’s, with additional projects being planned.

10 ways God is different from us #NoneLikeHim

I was offered to review None like Him book not too long ago. The title of the book caught my attention and made me wonder what is Jen Wilkin is going to talk about. 

Obviously I know that we are different from God but I can't really tell much about our differences. Jen is able to help us understand a foundation for knowing and relating to Him. She came up with 10 ways God is different from us and why that is a good thing. 



She divided this book into 10 chapters.
1. Infinite : The God of No Limits 
2. Incomprehensible : The God of Infinite Mystery
3. Self-Existent : The God of Infinite Creativity
4. Self-Sufficient : The God of Infinite Provision
5. Eternal : The God of Infinite Days
6. Immutable : The God of Infinite Sameness
7. Omnipresent : The God of Infinite Place
8. Omniscient : The God of Infinite Knowledge
9. Omnipotent : The God of Infinite Power
10. Sovereign : The God of Infinite Rule

I found that this is a very easy reading book. Jen uses many Bible verses and some life experiences to help us see and understand who our God is. It is such an eye opener to me. Each chapter ends with verses for meditation, questions for reflection and encouraging us to write a prayer to the Lord. In the back of the book has a few pages for us to write personal reflections after we read. Jen Wilkin did a really good job in inviting us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.
