I would like to share some news! Thanks to a tweet from the amazing Bridget, my cookie mentor and 'boss' over at the University of Cookie, I was able to enter a recipe in a contest at Sweet Surrenders Cupcake and Cookie Cafe.
will let you check out the details if you are so inclined, but if I
won, I would get 10% of all the earnings for the entire month of July!
(and to have it named after me, but that is way to embarrassing for me, so I opted to let them choose how to name it for their shop)
Well. I did. I won! I was SHOCKED to put it mildly.
And unbelievably honored. And shocked. And scared to tell anyone for days because I didnt think it was real.
I have decided to donate 100% of the profits to The Christian Research Institute, and amazing educational organization that happens to be run by Hank Hanegraaff, my absolute favorite authority on apologetics.
Have you heard of Hank? He is awesome. On his radio Show, The Bible Answer Man, he answers the questions that folks throw at Christians when they are trying to dispute their faith; as well as the questions that Christians themselves have about the Bible.
For example, have you ever wanted to know:
Can a Christian lose their salvation?
How should Christians respond to Halloween?
Is baptism necessary for salvation?
Are generational curses Biblical?
What is abortion? (link goes to a different post on my blog, not the specific answer)
Should Christians be tolerant?
Should Christians use birth control?
Who is the antichrist?
What is the meaning of 666?
Why pray if God already knows what we need?
These are just a few examples of the tough questions that Hank tackles, and legitimately answers in his books. Every single answer is backed up with Scripture.
(if you really seek an answer to these questions, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will try to share with you some of his insights)
Hanks greatest desire (in my opinion) is that people know the Bible for all its worth.
I love listening to Hank on his radio show, I love reading his books, and I love learning more and more about God, His character, and the Bible.
Hank is bold and righteous (the good kind) in his faith and I want to be too!
So! That being said. If you live in the Boynton Beach, FL area, and would also like to support the Christian Research Institute, then please, feel free stop and have a Chocolate Hazelnut Delight cupcake!
