Moms Treasured Recipes Cooking Up A Cure for Cancer

Sisters D.J. Stiff Tague and Carol L. Stiff Anderson both battled cancer late in their lives. The two siblings passed away in the summer of 2004, just six weeks apart. To commemorate their lives while also helping the battle against cancer, the two womens families, Sandy, Jane, Mona, David and Paul Tague and Tina, Kandi and Scott Anderson, joined together to create a cookbook.

Our mothers, just like yours, had many great recipes, the books dedication page states. With every recipe, memories are enjoyed each time we prepare them. This book is to honor all mothers, the finest cooks, that always add a sprinkle of love in the food they have prepared over the years.

Mona (Tague) Beckley spearheaded the project after she had experienced success with another cookbook used as a fund-raiser for her Relay For Life team several years earlier.

The families and friends began promoting the idea and began collecting recipes to be compiled in the book that came off the presses early in 2005.

The finished product features more than 400 pages of prized recipes ranging from Augusta Russells Sugar Cookies to Zucchini Jam.

The cookbook is not only for recipes. It was created with a number of places for the owner to record special memories to add sentimental value when the book is passed on to the next generation.

We hope these special selection dividers help you create a family heirloom, Mona Beckley said. It can be filled out by your mother, by you for your children, or your memories of your mother. Add pictures, recipes that you prepare often, or your mothers favorites. Write a note by the recipes you like in this cookbook and this will indeed become a family treasure.

But the cookbook didnt stop at good food and happy memories. It also has been a powerful tool in the fight against cancer.

A year after the death of D.J. Tague, her family presented a check for $1,500 to the Scotland County Cancer Fund to assist local cancer victims. The donation was made from proceeds generated by the sale of the cookbook.

Sharing the proceeds this time just seemed to be the right way to honor both Carol and my mother, Mona said. Cancer hits home for lots of people and Im glad the cookbook can raise money to fight it.

Additional proceeds have been earmarked for the American Cancer Society, which the families also supported with their efforts at the local Relay for Life.

Members of the Monas Angels Relay For Life Team joined with the siblings to help promote and sell the cookbook. Tague also praised the work done by her family members, Ruth Mumford, Karri Feeney and Tina Jorgensen for their efforts in collecting recipes, designing and editing the book and promoting sales.

Cookbooks are still available at several local outlets including the Memphis Democrat, A Payne in the Glass, Rose Hardware, Oakwood Industry, the Scotland County Health Department and Monas Studio. They are also being sold in the Tipton, IA community where Carol Andersons family still resides. More than 1,300 copies of the book have been sold.

The price of the book is $15. You can order a copy by sending a check for $15 plus $3 for postage and handling to Cancer Cookbook Fund c/o Mona Beckley at 428 S. Market Street, Memphis, MO 63555.

New Beginnings

There is a major part to the Christian belief system that tends to get past some; well…. maybe all of us.  That would be the truth, the fact, that in Christ we are new day by day.  Oh how we struggle to live this out.

At County Fairs some have a competition called a Tractor Pull.  One by one, each tractor is at the starting line pulling a cart with weights that transition into a heavier load as the trek progresses.  Eventually, the tractor stops in its tracks because it can no longer pull the load.  The one that travels the greatest length gets the trophy.

Our daily walk is sometimes just like a Tractor Pull.  The further into the day, the heavier the load until we are shut down in our tracks.  God is very much  aware of our dilemma and is devoted to its reversal. If God is anything, He is all about new, renewal, renewing.  Bible expression and confirmation is there for a reason.  He knows we will experience deep stress and provides a way out.  This isn’t just church chatter.  This is to be life… your life… my life… renewed life… day after day.

Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day (II Cor. 4:16).

Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come (II Cor. 5:17).

It is for this very reason that Jesus called for our new beginning by being born again. Such isn’t a church doctrine as much as it is designed to restart our engines when we do more sputtering than effectively moving forward. Renewal…it’s a daily thing… so look toward it.  Experience it.  And tomorrow?  Start all over… new… again!

White House

The White House, one of the most recognizable buildings in Washington, DC., was designed by James Hoban, an Irish-born-and-trained architect who won a competition organized by President George Washington and Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson in 1792. He also designed the Capitol. Although  President Washington oversaw construction, he never lived in the house. President John Adams, elected    in 1796 as the second President  was the first resident of the White House. Abigail Adams, President Adams’ wife, was known  to have complained about the largely unfinished new residence. President Thomas Jefferson, upon moving into the house in 1801, was also not impressed, and dismissed the house as being too big. Jefferson made several structural changes under architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, such as the addition of terrace-pavilions on either side of the main building and single-story wings  for storage. In addition  to replacing the slate roof with one of sheet iron, Jefferson further improved the grounds by landscaping them in a picturesque manner. While James Madison was  President from 1809 to 1817, the White House was torched by the British  in the War of 1812. Although the fire was put out, charred walls and the interior brick walls were all that was left. Madison brought Hoban back to restore the mansion, which took three years. Expansion and further alterations were made when President Theodore Roosevelt declared the house unfit to inhabit. He had extensive remodeling done and extended the office wing adding the well known oval office. It was President Theodore Roosevelt who gave the White House its official name. President Harry Truman decided again the building was unsafe and had to be gutted, and remodeled. The White House, is an architectural symbol of the American presidency and the nation’s power, remains a stylistically simple resident and an  example of the stolid republican ideals of the Founding fathers. It is listed in the National Register of Historic places, along with other historic buildings in Washington, DC.
