Redeeming the Table

sharing stories, hospitality & food with friend & stranger

Redeeming the table shares stories of faith & life around the table, while utilizing real food focusing on the Paleo diet and extending hospitality to welcome others to it.  Kamille Scellick is the voice behind Redeeming the Table, and she speaks candidly and openly of her own story, struggles, and triumphs in sharing the table.  She is a mom to three girls, one who has special needs.  She is the wife to Ben.  She loves Jesus.

Taking a Leave of Absence

Our kitchen is rather small. So, when dishes pile up, odds & ends stack up, it doesn't take much for the countertops to encroach and come 4:30 I wonder how I can create anything. Have you noticed that? When the sink is empty and clean, the kitchen clutter-free, and the refrigerator organized I feel like I am the chef of the hour.

Whatever your craft, be it writing, accounting, homemaking, and whether your more organized or spontaneous in the seeing things through...we all need a clean working surface. It's what I need right now.

I'm pulling away from here for the month, because life will never slow down for me to catch up. However, I can slow down my priorities. And with that, I'm cutting out Facebook, Twitter, and posting here on the blog for the month.

Caprice is turning 'one,' V begins first grade and Tay will begin preschool in September and I want to relish in this last month of summer with them. I also want to organize my creativity a bit more. Harness it in a bit. I want to be a person who isn't running haphazardly through life always trying to catch up. I want to hear the voice of God, and commit more to my church body.

I am needing and wanting to hear what God would have for me. If you read my post on MomHeart yesterday, then you know a little more of what I'm talking about.

This excerpt from Henri Nouwen puts why I need this time away very succinctly.

I will miss being able to post a recipe here and there, but you can always email me to keep in touch. I will still be on Instagram here and there. I'll see you in September!
