If you haven’t already visited Grace Full Mama, please take a moment and take a look around. This is one of my favorite blogs! Joy is truly living the Christian life…she home schools her 5 (yes 5!) very young children, is spreading God’s word in a different country, and has learned a new language and way of life. Her love for her Indonesian community is so evident…you simply must hear it from her. Take a second to “like” her FB page too- you will get her updates! I am a huge fan and we got to room together at Relevant…she is remarkable in every way.




  1. Hi Janelle!
    I have a couple questions about this one. . . . With the chicken bouillon cube . . . do u throw it in whole, or do you make chicken broth out of it then add it to the marinade? The marinade doesn’t seem liquidy enough with just the cube, but it doesn’t say to make broth out of it.

    And then how much brown sugar do you add to the soy sauce if you’re using the regular soy sauce?

    Thank you!

  2. I was wondering what you recommend serving as sides? I have a 3 year old and 2 year old…and I am always looking for new foods for the family to try. I had satay once years ago at a cafe and loved it….but it was just an appetizer.
