We’re CELBRATING 2 YEARS OF SERVICE!!! Wohoo!!! On August 13th, 2010 Forever Fed hosted our first block party at Canton Adventist Church on Scott Mill Road in Canton and it was a party, indeed! The enormity of what began that day continues to overwhelm both myself and others today and it never fails to bring a smile to my face. Our leadership of seven dedicated servants decided from the beginning that we’d serve meals when we promised to serve them regardless of weather. God … [Read more...] about Celebrating BIG this Saturday!!!
I’ve spent much time in the last few weeks investigating and researching all sorts of “stuff,” that I think I need to know. In the mornings I turn on the television and do a “quick check” into Facebook which leads me to everything from reading political posts to looking at the vacation pictures of friends. Sometimes my friends Facebook posts direct me to Pinterest. I then get lost in fun things on Pinterest and pretty soon the texting with other friends starts on my … [Read more...] about The Jesus in Me

It’s like a “Graduation Explosion” at my house this spring. Our twin boys are graduating from College and our daughter is about to graduate from High School.For my husband Bob and I, this means in a very short while we’ll be empty nesters.

When you are a food ministry people donate all sorts of food to your organization. Sometimes that means Forever Fed get miscellaneous cans of soups and smaller items that we really don’t use while preparing meals for 100+ people at a time. So we put them on a storage shelf and just keep them for a rainy day. About once a month we get an “emergency call” about a family who needs food. Delivering boxes of food to individual families is not really what Forever Fed does. We … [Read more...] about Bringing Light with Odds and Ends
About 2 weeks ago I ordered 24 boxes of Red Velvet Cake mix from the Atlanta Food Bank for making cupcakes for our Kid's Bible Club Event in February. The large box containing the cake mixes got placed on the storage shelf without further thought until yesterday. I spoke with Lorraine Rose (she's in charge of the meal at Kid's Bible Club) and she asked me "So how many boxes of cake mix are there?" and of course, I didn't remember and told her I'd get back to her with a count. Today I made … [Read more...] about God Knows We Need Before We Do!
