For most of my life, I thought that the most important activity for a Christian was to attend church or mass on Sundays.

I have always been a fan of fresh meat. There is just something amazing about opening a package of 2” thick tenderloins from a steer that I knew had been spoiled on grass.
After having four kids, my wife and I decided that not only was fresh meat a healthier choice, but it was also a much more affordable one.
