When I think about strawberry shortcake, the word that comes to mind is wholesome. It’s a quintessentially American sweet that conjures up images of grandmothers patting together biscuit dough and whipping cream by hand.

But just because it’s wholesome doesn’t mean there isn’t room to make it a touch more healthy. This is exactly what I had in mind when I came up with theseWhole Wheat Strawberry Shortcakes.

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities!
