Do I consider myself a ministry leader? I certainly do! I started on this amazing journey from my humble kitchen in Fairview, NC, three years ago. Unknowingly, I opened my doors to a new ministry involving freezer cooking. I never knew there was a need for women to learn the fundamentals of cooking and freezing for the future. With 144 servings of food spread before us, I quickly realized this blessing could be shared with others in need. From the fullness of His grace, we’ve all received one blessing after another (John 1:16) and we share the blessings through freezer cooking.
What did the Lord reveal to me? We could be a Proverbs 31 woman, providing food for our family while caring for the poor and needy. For three years, Cook and Play’s provided monthly meals for the Steadfast home, our local homeless women and children’s shelter. We’ve given meals to multiple families within our congregation of 5000.
I never knew God’s love from my kitchen to yours would funnel it’s way to so many homes. My friend shared a note of encouragement to me this week. It ‘s a confirmation to my calling as a ministry leader. “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a life.” I never planned this ministry. God planned it and I’m just His empty vessel. And that’s whyI’d love, love to attend She Speaks.
I’d love to fill this vessel with wisdom from the She Speaks Conference to become a dynamic God-filled leader. I desire to see where God is working and join Him. My prayer is to be filled with the Spirit without limit as I seek the She Speaks scholarship sponsored by Cecil Murphey, posted by Renee Swope with Proverbs 31.
