“Baked With Yeast” is a play on the biblical language of yeast in the New Testament. Jesus speaks about yeast in two different contexts. In Matthew 13:33, Jesus says, “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough.” But in contrast, Jesus warns his disciples in Luke 12:1: “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.” [Emphases are mine.]

The word yeast was used by Jesus as imagery to convey goodness and godliness, in one sense. But in another sense, it meant hypocrisy and selfishness. This blog is meant to document both the good and the bad “yeast” in my journey as a mom. Although I strive to be a good and Christ-like mother, I fail daily – and I can admit write about it.

Allow me to introduce myself – my name is Kelly. I am: 1) a late-20-something; 2) a mostly stay-at-home mom, who escapes works one day per week; 3) a parent to a curious, busy, and entertaining toddler, Annalise; and 4) pregnant with another (!!!).

As an avid blog reader, blogs have become a constant companion to me. I turn to them daily for advice, a good laugh, distraction from the monotony, and a sense of belonging and community. “Baked With Yeast” has been swirling in my head for years now, and I finally have taken the time and initiative to commit to blogging about this misrepresented phase of life, called parenthood.
