09 // an interview with Megan Cosby on how the heart heals

October is National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month and we wanted to share her story today in hope that it can be a source of healing for others who have also experienced the loss of a child. Megan and her husband David are the creators of the EAC Foundation, which inspires women and raises funds for Children’s Cardiomyopathy research in honor of sweet Ellis Ann. This podcast also shares the truth of Psalm 34:18 and how God is near to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

chocolate chip pecan pie

Ever since we moved to the country, I’ve tried using the pecans that fall from our trees in several different recipes. I think I have found my favorite use of this fall nut inside of this rich and satisfying chocolate chip pecan pie. To me, this is the perfect blend of salty and sweet. It is definitely a splurge to enjoy with family or friends and is best served up hot with homemade whipped cream. You only need one slice of this ooey-gooey pie to feel full and satisfied!!!
