Every Monday, be on the lookout for your mission for the week. Part of the mission of Kitchen Stewardship is to continuously be making small changes to work toward the goal of truly being a good steward of all four:
time, nutrition, environment and budget.
Another part is not getting overwhelmed and giving up! Try your darndest to accept one mission a week. If you can’t accomplish a mission, don’t fret and DON’T GIVE UP! Just sign on for the next mission.
You’ll even notice that I often give you a “mental mission” — just something to read and think about that week to prepare you for taking a real-life step the next week. Keepin’ it simple.
Don’t worry – we’ll return to almost every topic with another, deeper mission, so if you haven’t completed one the first time, you can either take step one or just take a larger stride in a certain area that week. Everything is possible with God — if a mission seems difficult for you, pray about it. He won’t lead you to a place where He’s not willing to walk along and guide you. Be bold in your kitchen!

Understanding Levels of Commitment
Beginner Baby Steps: This is a small change that can usually be made without buying anything new, making a huge change in routine, or even thinking something through very hard. If you’re low on energy or don’t like changes, accept a Baby Step.
Mid Range Making Strides: You may have to put some thought into this level of commitment; you may need to forage for a resource or item in your home. You might want to think about this level for a few days and gear up mentally before trying it. Bravo for accepting the challenge of Making Strides!
Advanced Leap of Faith: These are the big dogs, the missions that take some research, some multi-step processes, or a rather major change in routine.
Don’t be afraid of a Leap of Faith, but at some point God may call you to change something drastic in your kitchen. I’ll show you how!
