Cookies and Babies

Our chuch's nursery care worker, Carmen Stamey, made the news last week. Carmen is awesome directing our nursery which is filling up these days with children and babies.

Those who like baked goods made from fresh, organic and local ingredients will like Carmen Stameys food because she likes them, too, and makes sure they’re a part of what she makes for family and friends.
