Every year, the women's ministry in our church, Women Walking Worthy, headed by my friend Ashley Hall, hosts a Ladies' Night Out for the ladies in our church and community. This year, the theme was "What's Your Story?" and the program featured three women from our church sharing their testimonies about what God has done and is doing in their lives. It was amazing! My main contribution to the evening was providing the meal. The head of our kitchen ministry, Lydia Black, worked with me to organize everything and to make sure it all ran smoothly. I enlisted the help of a few friends, Debbie Settle, Lindsay Simpson and Sandi Simpson to come up to the church the day before LNO to help me cook for the nearly 300 ladies.
The menu was Lemon-Rosemary Grilled Chicken, Berry Peach Salad, Cheddar-Broccoli Salad, Veggie Ranch Rotini, Italian Confetti Salad, and yeast rolls. Dessert was on the table, ready to serve -- a single layer cake, half devil's food, half red velvet, with cream cheese icing. Abbie from Common Road Bakery made all of the cakes.
The men in our church helped by serving tea and water and by doing all the cleanup. This picture is of two of our college people, Kris and Ben, who came to help. Clearly, it wasn't all work and no play!
