Do you recall a time when someone encouraged you? Perhaps you were frustrated or overburdened. Encouragement is a blessing to us in difficult times. You have the opportunity to encourage others and give them support just by writing them a note or offering to listen to their frustrations. You can help them see their strengths, remind them of God’s presence, and then look for ways you can lighten their burden. Giving advice isn’t always helpful, so just listen and show you care. When the Holy Spirit is at work in us, we show kindness and caring to others, and we can “encourage one another and build each other up.” (I Thessalonians 5:11). The Good News Translation of Ephesians 4:9 says, “Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that build up and provide what is needed, so that what you say will do good to those who hear you.” May God bless your week!

This week we are revisiting pumpkin spice everything, you know because it's October and it's the seasonal law. Just kidding, but pumpkin spice is everywhere and for good reason, you can make so much from the puree. This cool weather also makes coffee more popular too, so I'm pairing the two in a coffee cake. After a google search on coffee cakes, I learned there are over 2.4 billion results. Germany was the first country to serve coffee with a sponge-like cake, later becoming the popular traditional cinnamon-flavored coffee cakes in the United States. So, I set out to find a pumpkin coffee cake that would be perfect for any time of the day. This recipe is easy, it freezes well and won't last long. Oddly enough, very few coffee cake recipes included coffee in the ingredients, I may have to look further into that, sounds like a perfect pair to me. Happy baking. more
