    your blog looks wonderful! I don’t know a whole lot about the paleo diet, but am definitely interested in it; certainly seems a healthful way of eating. also, I absolutely love your “banner” photo! 🙂

    I just stumbled onto your blog tonight, and I am so thrilled to find another Paleo Christian! Enough with that evolution-animal-human-centered nonsense. I’m still in a (pretty great-feeling) transition to being completely Paleo, slowly persuading my husband to give up the bad stuff, so I’m on a sharp lookout for resources and recipes. Finding these from a fellow believer is extra special!

    Blessings! ~C

    Praise God for your boldness and willingness to share your faith. I happened to find you through your post on another blog yesterday!!

    As a new Paleo eater due to milk-soy-grain allergies diagnosed 2 wks ago and a fellow Christian, your blog is an answer to prayer.

    God bless you!
