Midstream Career Change

I am thinking seriously about going to culinary school in Dallas. I love to cook...actually, I have a passion for cooking. Cooking a meal taps into my creative side (sometimes a little too creative) and, most of the time, people really like what I cook.

My Grandmother Helen started a home cookin' (no "g"..."g's were too refined) restaurant after she retired in Palmersville, Tennessee. She used every country fried, gravy covered, sugar glazed recipe in her arsenal and she could pack the place at night. I think I got her cookin' DNA.

But what I want to know is God is calling me to be a chef? Can I serve Him well cooking food and serving others? I am praying about it.


  1. Awww... the question is: "How can you NOT serve Him well being a chef?" Or a dock worker, or a car mechanic, or a Walmart greeter. We're told to 'work as unto the Lord' in whatever we do. I couldn't imagine a chef who cooked with the passion, love and dedication of Christ. I would LOVE to know that a chef was praying over my food as he prepared it, and praying God's blessings upon those who patronized a restaurant.
    Wasn't Jesus a 'Servant'?
    Hmmm... Just my ponderings.
    Blessings and God's wisdom,

  2. Thank you Deb for such a great comment...bless you.

  3. Right on Deb! Not much to add to that!

    God's Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path ~ Ps 119:105 ~ With the Lamp you can see where to step ... with the Light you can see down the path ahead of you.

    May God bless you, direct you and guide your steps! Amen
