Jonathin turned 8 last month and Jessa will be 9 on Monday. Before the year is up Jayde will also have her birthday and she will be 7. I am working two jobs and running Ethin's Heart Still Beats.

I have some very exciting news and need your help!!!! Ethin's Heart Still Beats is collaborating with Hope for BraveHearts and we are making a cook book to hopefully have printed and ready to sell in February for CHD Awareness Week 2011!!! So what I need is for you to submit me recipies that we can put in this cook book!!! If you know the caloric intake per serving that would be great, but if not that's OK we have a way to figure it out. If you have any good fat free recipies please send those as we are putting together a fat-free section for those that need a fat free diet. So please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org include your name, city and state and if you are a heart mom please include your heart child's name and defect. We want recipes from everyone though. Looking forward to receiving your recipies. Oh and here is a sneek peek at one of the cover possibilities for the cook book!!! Shannon has not even seen this yet!
