Thank you for making space in your inbox where I can share these words and prayers with you. 

Whatever pulled you in to sign up for Soul Food (which, yup, means another email), I’m honored. 

If there is one thing I’ve learned, is that our struggles are not without a purpose

Any chef will tell you, ya gotta make a mess in the kitchen if ya gonna create something worth sharing. So let me put it this way, I’ve created a lot of messes in my kitchen (just ask my husband ;).

It’s time I start sharing my food with you.

The truth is, He’s been asking me to do this for a while now. At first, I was filled with resistance and fear as I responded “Not me.” and “Not now.” 

But in His compassionate and loving form, He invited me to sit in His kitchen, enjoy drinking coffee in tea bags, and observe what He was cooking in our lives. 

For the past ten years or so, that’s exactly what I did. But now He’s told me it’s time to start sharing His food with others. 

Thank you for trusting me with this space in your inbox. I don’t know where this journey will take us, but I do believe we’ll create something wonderful. 

xoxo, 

P.S. What’s cooking in your kitchen?
