At My Humble Kitchen, We believe that real food, free of man made chemicals and processed ingredients, gives vibrant life that we may live fully. We nourish ourselves so that we may live out our calling according to God’s will with perseverance and endurance, that we may finish our lives into the warm embrace of Jesus.
Our food is a gift from God and we must steward what he’s entrusted to us.
From the beginning, God created every living thing and food for us. He gave us the fruits in the trees, the seeds in the ground, and then living animals to eat from.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
We believe that it’s our responsibility to tend to what he’s given to us in reverence of his creation… stewardship. We believe that anyone can take part in stewarding this earth, simply, by starting small gardens (even in containers), visiting farmers markets, getting to know our local family farmers, visiting u-pick farms, raising backyard chickens, preserving some of our food, and learning simple cooking skills to nourish our families.
At My Humble Kitchen, we have seen time and time again that when you take part in stewarding this Earth, you will draw near to his natural world and personally witness his hand of creation and in turn, find Him.
Unprocessed and Traditional
We believe in whole foods, free of processed ingredients, that have been prepared traditionally. Most processed foods that come from packages and boxes are filled with chemicals and preservatives that strip foods of their nutritional value and hinders our health. By consuming whole, unrefined foods, that are prepared traditionally, we are filled with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that lead to vibrant health.
We believe that we are living in a fallen world and that ultimately, only God knows the number of our days. We also believe that God created our bodies that are more than capable to heal themselves when nourished the majority of the time. For that reason, we believe that as long as we eat real foods 85% of the time, we are more than capable to detox toxins from within.
*please note, the exception is to those that have physical allergies and food intolerances.
Physical Food Should Never Come Before Fellowship with People
Since we believe in grace and that our bodies can heal themselves, we strongly believe that physical food should never come before fellowship with the believer or unbeliever. In other words, if you’re at a potluck or having supper with someone that has opened up their home to you, ask God for his blessing and then eat up and fellowship with your brother or sister.
*please note, this does not apply if you have a physical allergy or food intolerance.
Food in Celebration
We believe that food is something to be enjoyed in celebration with friends, family, and those in our community. We believe that when one understands their food intimately, the food that God has provided becomes worthy of celebration which always brings glory to Him.
I personally can’t wait to feast at the table with Jesus in heaven!
For the Children
At My Humble Kitchen we strongly believe in training up our children to steward the Earth in which he has entrusted to us. We find joy in working side by side with our children so that they will know the value of hard work, the joy in harvesting the fruits of their labor, and that they’ll reap the benefits of learning lifetime cooking skills that they can carry on for future generations.
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
