What stories do.
The resident chef outdid himself. Today was the first Quirky Faith dinner. We spent most of the day in preparation.
I invited everyone who has submitted a story for Wall of Faith. It was my attempt to say thank you. It was also my blatant effort at bribery for future writers. (I'm gonna do this again....send me your story!)
My husband owns a pretty slick pasta roller. He recently got the ravioli attachment. Oh happy day!
It's fun when you gather a bunch of story tellers in the same room. We sat and ate and laughed and listened.
I found these dishes at Goodwill the same week I launched Quirky Faith. I texted my husband a photo. He told me to buy the whole set. I love when God builds fun affirmations into my life.
I present Ricotta and Spinach Ravioli with Basalmic Vinegar Butter sauce and topped in Parmesan and Walnuts.
Have I mentioned food is my love language?
Chocolate mousse and Fudge cake topped in Raspberries. See?! Massive rewards for sharing your story.
Here is the reality though. This dinner is a symbol that shows what happens in life. We all have a story. Some are funny to bring laughter and joy. Some are inspiring. Some help us understand.
I understand this format may not be a good fit for you. Some stories are too painful for the public. You still shouldn't carry it alone. Tell a counselor, a pastor, a friend.
When you let people see your flaws you meet someone else's hunger.
When you give credit to God for His Grace in your life you see more beauty.
When you are set free by sharing the truth you are open for new friends.
Tell your story. The rewards are food for your soul.

I love Jesus. I think my two daughters can change the world. I think you can too.
