1: Table of Contents Appetizers Main Dish Side Dishes Desserts Christmas | Our Message | In all likelihood there isn't a woman out there that wouldn't trade in her daily grind of washing dishes or fixing the next meal for the fantasy life of Cinderella, or in this case Esther. We learn through the years that with each dish we wash or each face we wipe, we make choices. It's not always easy being a woman. Just as Esther made the choice to face death personally and fight for her nation that was condemned to die. Her bold choice gives each of us the courage to take the next step knowing that only God knows our future. We wish to encourage you through this cookbook to not only do your daily tasks with a Godly heart, but to do so for the glory | of God. Let this book inspire you through the food that nourishes your body, the bible verses that touch you personally, and the quotes that lead spiritually. God has a plan for each one of us. May we make the bold step to follow Him. We pray you enjoy this cookbook, Terri, Jami, Paige & Heather
