"I think family is very important and I believe one of the best ways for our grandchildren to learn about and get to know their ancestors, on both sides, is to have this cookbook where the credit is given to each family member from whom the recipe originated. Our grandchildren never knew our grandmothers. This way they will get to know them through their recipes. Everyone has asked me why I hadn’t typed the recipes, but that was not my purpose. I wanted them to have it in my own handwriting." Besides the family recipes that had been handed down, plus a few she had collected, Glenna has included verses of scripture for encouragement throughout the 238 pages.
One would possibly think this wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother spends a great deal of her time in writing cookbooks. Not true; her pantry and lifestyle prove it. "I did and do those books at nighttime when I’m sitting down."
