Herb Butter Stuffing with Fresh Herb Gravy

Here’s Meagan Witt, one of HCFM’s Meal Masters With This Weeks Food For the Soul!


It’s almost Christmas!  Do you have your Christmas menu planned?  If not, I would love for you to try my recipe for Herb Butter Stuffing!

But first a word of encouragement…

This week, God spoke to me about the kindness of Jesus. As my husband was reading our Advent devotional to the children I felt the Holy Spirit whisper, “The kindness of Jesus is what draws us to Him. Clothe yourself in the kindness of Jesus, so others may be drawn to Him as well.”

As you’re preparing for Christmas or maybe even as you’re making this savory stuffing, please stop and ask Jesus to help you clothe yourself in His kindness. May everyone around you be drawn to Him this Christmas and partake in not only delicious food but, more importantly, the loving kindness of Christ.

“Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips will praise you.” Psalms 63:3
