The High King Lives

My Family Rocks! Sunday: Auburn Fun, Marriage blogs & Hannah’s Shepherds Pie Recipe August 26, 2012

In this post: Two neat spots in Auburn, marriage blogs,  & Hannah’s Shepherds Pie recipe

Hello friends 🙂 A couple of weeks ago we took a trip to Auburn, AL (not for the football…sorry fans). There are two things we love in Auburn. The first is Hickory Dickory Park which is a kid’s dream park. I love it. Second, is Earth Fare, a completely organic store. It’s one of the few stores where you don’t have to worry about checking the labels.  Pics below 🙂

Earth Fare

My favorites from Earth Fare: Virgil’s sodas are a lot cheaper here. I haven’t been able to find these RAW bars anywhere else.

Hickory Dickory Park- Enjoy the pics

Of course there is a “clock” with a mouse…like the rhyme

Look it’s the Auburn Tiger!

Chris being a kid again 😉

I like to explore the woods in the park.

Great Marriage Blogs

A great blog about modesty. It has several discussion sections where you can give your opinion.

I already shared this blog a couple of Wednesday’s ago. Still, I love this woman’s testimony and her unique perspective. A lot has changed since the women’s lib movement. I guess you could say for the good AND for the bad. The world rocks back n forth between extremes. Women are NOT property but we are also NOT men. God made us unique and beautiful in our femininity.  The Peaceful Wife provides balance that comes from the Bible.  Despite what you may have heard, the Bible actually treats women well and God commands that husbands lay down their lives for their wives….like Christ did for the church. Talk about pressure! Unconditional respect is just as important as unconditional love.

I may have shared this blog before too but I love Sheila’s balanced perspective on marriage and God’s plan for sex within marriage. My hubby and I were virgins when we got married and it truly is such a beautiful thing. I encourage all singles to save themselves for their future spouse. It is SO worth it!

Hannah’s Shepherds Pie– I got this from my best buddy Hannah. She got the recipe from someone else but when we ate it she forgot to add more mashed potatoes and I like it that way. So this is her modification. I like the balance.


To Mix

  • 2 lbs cooked ground beef  (I used only one and it still tasted good)
  • can of tomato sauce
  • 1 onion (I sprinkled onion powder)
  • garlic powder
  • corn
  • peas


  • 1 pack of instant mashed potatoes
  • put pieces of butter all over top

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix everything together then top it with topping and bake for 20 minutes.

Note: I’m aware that the proper name is Cottage Pie since we’re not using lamb……but most people in the states say Shepherds Pie so I’m going with it 😉

God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
