My Finest Recipe

The recipe everyone wants. 

Last week, I made the best balsamic Brussel sprouts … ever!  They were so good, everyone at the potluck wanted the recipe. (That didn’t surprise me, cuz I got the recipe at a different potluck.)

Though the recipe was simple, the dish was not easy to make. It took planning, timing, prepping and double-checking the instructions to make sure it would turn out well. But it was worth it to see it consumed with glee and share the goodness with others.

We readily share recipes for lasagna, banana bread and glazed Brussel sprouts, but what’s the recipe for a life that works?

The recipe for disaster.

I tried all sorts of things before Jesus.

  • Drugs.
  • Men.
  • Food.
  • Shopping.
  • Will-power.

Nothing worked till I surrendered my life to Jesus and found a woman to disciple me. Louise recognized how quickly a girl like me, who knew little about God and nothing about the Bible, could get discouraged or misled, so she took me on like a project and never made me feel like one. She provided a safe space for me to ask questions I was too embarrassed to ask in class.

  • How do I talk to God?
  • Where do I start reading the Bible?
  • Is there forgiveness for my past?
  • How can I let go of the pits and patterns that keep me stuck?
  • Where do I find peace in the midst of cruddy circumstances?
  • How do I know if God is leading me or if it’s my own idea?

Louise discipled me from starting out to standing firm. Could you do that?

Make disciples of all nations

The last words of Jesus are found in Matthew 28:19. He says, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations.”

You don’t need to enter the mission fields of foreign countries to make disciples. Today, more than ever, the church is filled with women who long for a recipe to a better life and don’t know how to get it.

Beyond the church, we work, socialize and interact with women who need Jesus and don’t know who he is or where to find him. YOU could be the one who leads her to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ or supports her faith walk into the life Jesus died to give her.

But how, you ask? You’ll happily share your recipe for chicken stroganoff and peach cobbler, but you don’t have a clear, simple-to-follow recipe to trust and follow Jesus!

How about I share mine with you?

Simple steps to share your faith.

If the idea of sharing Jesus, or answering questions about faith has you quaking in your boots, fear not, I’ve got you.
