Every Tuesday evening in my home I host
a "cell group" with ladies from my church.
It is a time to fellowship together, dig deeper
into the word of God, discuss life-changing matters
and pray effectively!

We have already seen miracles happening:
family restoration, financial blessings,
physical healing and a greater capacity
to love God's people!

This week we celebrated with a Mexican Fiesta!
The food was fabulous and the company was divine!
We had the best time being together, eating a
sumptuous feast and discussing all the wonders
God is doing in our lives!!

The festivities will begin soon!

the beautiful ladies...

CONCETTA'S RECIPES

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
