Favorite quotes:

1. (On dreams) I would love to encourage our friends if you have an idea it may not be something that you are going to do or act on for another 3 or 5 or 10 years, but when that day comes, it will be so much more beautiful and so much more richer because you waited.

2. I think for some of us, we forget that God has great, big adventures for us and some of them happen on the other side of the world in a different country, and some of them happen right in our own towns, and in our own communities with the people all around. And that’s the thing that I love about Taste and See, is that it’s this invitation not to go on this great big culinary food adventure but for you to take your own.


3. The unique giftings, the unique areas, the unique appearance, the unique backgrounds, those things that make you unique are what God wants to use, I believe, to help flavor and influence this world.

1. Please share a funny memory you have with your husband. (36:30)
