“Debra Brawner has beautifully illustrated in her stories, biblical wisdom, and family-pleasing recipes that the art of cooking is not lost. Our ever-present time crunch and the availability of restaurants and prepared foods have led some straight out of the kitchen, but Debra gently leads us right back, into the pleasure of cooking. She stirs not only the comforting pot of soup, but our souls as well. She cooks up far more than delicious food, but that which satisfies and strengthens the soul and spirit.
“I love her tour through the biblical fruits of the Spirit and her recipes that they inspire. Here is a book showcasing the heart of God toward us, with a practical guide to good food. God creates the fruit and then puts it into the hands of His people like Debra to prepare it and dish it out to a hurting world.
“It is wonderful to observe and experience the fruit of the Spirit growing in a person. It produces a renewed heart, a different way of thinking and good will toward God and people. That is a recipe for happiness and fulfilled destiny, and obtainable for each of us as we receive God’s love and learn His ways. These wonders are served up within these pages.” —Dianne Davis, Southwest US Director for Aglow International
