Clean-eating is a pretty hot topic in our culture these days, and like any other cultural trend, it’s important that we bring biblical discernment to how we think about our food and diet. Let me start off by saying that I don’t think any one approach to food is the right way. I have friends who have been greatly helped with certain health issues by changing their diets, and I think that is wonderful. I also have friends who enjoy a lot of freedom in what they eat and are thriving in that. So there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to how we eat. But I do think there are two big lies tempting us when we think about food in our current culture.

We now live in Chadds Ford, but for the first 13 years that we attended Covenant, we lived in North East, MD. What used to be a 45 minute (one way) commute is now an 8-minute commute, which is sweet! We attend the Culley community group, an awesome group!

My husband and I know that different schooling options are right for different families, and we made this decision together, but no matter how long we talked, the decision caused much angst for me. I was fearful that my decision would be viewed as an indictment on other people who do not make…
Honey Muir has been a faithful member of our church since 1987, and Covenant wouldn’t be the same without her. Thanks for doing this interview with us, Honey.
Where did you grow up?
Well, I was born in Philly and lived there till I was ten. But I’d have to say I did most of my “growing up” in a very cute little town right above Collegeville, called Trappe, in Montgomery County. So that makes me a Montco!
