Bob Goff on the Morning Show!


We’re so excited to introduce you to a man who has added the phrase “Love Does” to our everyday vocabulary. Here’s a link to his book on Amazon!

As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. His grades weren’t good enough to get into law school, so he sat on a bench outside the Dean’s office for seven days until they finally let him enroll.

We All Scream for “Snow Cream!”


Snow ice cream

This easy recipe has been making the rounds on social media… making ice cream from freshly fallen snow!  We have plenty of snow around West Michigan, so why not make the best use of it.  Just remember: NEVER eat the yellow snow!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • CLEAN Snow

Preparation:

Put on your warm clothes and take the kids outside to collect 4 – 5 cups of fresh, clean snow. Don’t pack the snow, just scoop it up. Bring it in the house and set it in the freezer while you prepare the other ingredients.

Mix together the milk, vanilla, and the sugar. Stir this mixture until the sugar is dissolved. Slowly add the snow to your mixture, stirring constantly, until it is as thick as ice cream. Now it is ready to east and enjoy.
