Giveaway: Become a Relational, Confident Cook

If eating is the sixth love language, then mine is cooking for that person.  I understand what Eric Liddell meant when he said, “God made me fast.  And when I run, I feel his pleasure,” because when I get to cook & teach others how to cook, I feel God’s pleasure.  There is this delight in watching the person take the first bite of my creation unwrapping the gift.  

Women either lack the confidence, the know how, joy in the process or food allergies further inhibiting them from cooking and eating.  Questions arise, “Where does one even begin?,” “How do you add flavor?,” “What do I do with these food allergies?,” which leave more doubt than answers.  

I want to gift one person 1-hour long food/cooking consultation via Skype with me to work with you on your menu planning, tips, shortcuts, etc.  In our hour, you will walk away as a more confident cook in the kitchen so mealtime can be about the relationships.  

You will receive:

  • Learn how to substitute common ingredients for allergen free ones
  • Using more than salt to flavor a dish
  • Instilling a practice of grace & prayer in your cooking life
  • Cook tried and true recipes for successful meals
  • How to make nutritious, easy meals

My heart aches when I hear women lament in the difficulty making it to the kitchen.  When they lack any joy or feel aimless in their kitchen. If you are one of these women, write in the comments below at a chance to win the 1-hour Skype food/cooking consultation.

What is the Ministry of Flowers

Finding Ourselves in Unexpected Ministry

After putting my girls to bed, after our youngest’s birthday dinner was celebrated, after the living room was obliterated with gift wrap, I snuck away into the garden.  With summer inching away, the sun setting earlier making the after bedtime watering, weeding, deadheading more difficult.  

As I stood there in my garden, I was reflecting on how I got here, in this spot, watering a flower garden, when just a year prior I was only interested in my vegetable garden.  How did I grow to love these star-like sunset speckled dahlias, or the towering tissue-paper hollyhocks?  When did I begin looking for flower gardening books instead of cookbooks?  Have I replaced this with my love of cooking?  I felt rather aghast to think I could ever replace time in the kitchen with time out here in this garden, flower garden no less.

How to Make Real Life Connections

I'll be the first to admit that I enjoy having a smartphone.  I love the ease with finding information, being able to take a picture of my kids seamlessly, and staying connected with others has never been easier.  And still, with the advent of technological advancements, and social media connectedness, we are seeing more disconnectedness in real life.  

I see how people of older generations scoff at the younger generations glazing over with their phones in hand; but, what I'm finding is the older generations are as much to blame.  I want more than anything for my daughters to know how to have a real life conversation, how to connect with people in their actual life without a device helping them.  

We are in an age where the art of conversation is soon to become a lost art form, and emoticons and gifs will replace it.  But, deep within our souls we all long to be known by a person who can hug us when we are sad, stop by our home to tell us we are worth being known.  

Today I'm sharing over at Grace Table on my Six Tips for Making Real Life Connections to help you out if you need some gentle encouragement.  

The other way you can take this a step further is sign up today for my Storytelling Cooking Class, where you will learn how to cook & converse with confidence.  We will put down the phones, put away the distractions, and your deep seated ache of being known and making others known will be nurtured in this class.  Sign up here for $25.
