Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week so far! I don't know about you guys, but I can't believe we are almost half way through September. But hey- I say bring it on if it means comfy sweatshirts, apple picking, and pumpkin season! :)
I wanted to share a few pictures with you guys that are sort of a 'behind the scenes' look at my two recent TV interviews. I felt so blessed and honored at the opportunity to be able to share my testimony on Life Today and do a healthy cooking demo on Fox 2 News over the past two weeks. It just blesses my heart to see how God is taking the 'healthy eating/lifestyle' side of Dashing Dish and using it to help people physically, and the 'spiritual' side to help people grown in their faith and walk with Him!
That is truly what my reason and my heart behind Dashing Dish has been from the beginning- to help others get spiritually and physically fit in a balanced way! It just blows my mind how God has continued to provide the tools and resources to do this- and I know it is simply because He loves His kids so much! I know the Lord desires that each one of us would take care of our bodies so that we will live a healthy life on this earth so we can walk out the plan He has for us with strength and endurance!
That being said, here are some of the behind the scenes photos! :)
My first interview was with Lisa Bevere on the set of Life Today with James and Betty Robison! I had the honor of sharing how the Lord healed and restored my life after eating disorders, and how Lisa Bevere's teachings and ministry were a powerful resource that The Lord led me to in the midst of my darkest hour. I am forever thankful for Lisa, and her heart, which is to teach and equip women to know who they are in Christ, and to set the captives free! On a more personal note- she is also hilarious and extremely down to earth and genuine in person! A true beauty, radiating Jesus from the inside out! If you haven't read any of her books, you need to pick up You Are Not What You Weigh and Girls with Swords. Both of which are life changing!
This program is set to air on October 9th, and will air on a few different stations, which you can read more about here. I will keep everyone posted with reminders on the exact date/time!
It was also such an honor to be able to meet James and Betty! I grew up watching them every morning when my mom would play their program! They have one of the most powerful ministries that is focused on saving the lost, and feeding the hungry! They are truly a blessing!
I also got to meet another amazing woman, Eileen Wilder, who also shared her testimony on how the Lord restored and set her free from years of bondage and addiction! This woman has a beautiful heart for Jesus! She is now a Creative Pastor and worship leader at Capital City Church!
After the show, I was able to meet & greet the members of the live studio audience, a few of which were Dashing Dish fans! This was such an incredible blessing, because it allowed me to put my arms around some of the amazing women that I get to 'talk' to every day over a screen! I honestly wish I could hug each one of you and see you face to face- so this was such a blessing to me! Here I am with Kat Clark, an amazing woman that is a true beauty inside and out. It was a blessing to get to talk to her and give her a big hug!
I also want to thank each and every amazing woman who came out to meet me (I wish I had pictures to share!) You are all wonderful, and it made me well up with tears after meeting each and every one of you!
About a week after the Life Today interview, I had the privilege of being on Fox 2 News, where I did a Healthy Tailgating cooking Demo! It was a blast to do, and it is always so much fun to be able to demonstrate how easy, tasty, and fun healthy eating can be!
Here I was in preparation to go in and film the segment- I was a little nervous being on live TV for the first time, but I kept telling myself to just share my passion and have fun! :) Since it was a tailgating special, I had to represent my home team of course- the Detroit Lions!
Then I headed on back to the Fox Kitchen to get set up!
The set looks a bit different in person than on TV, as I'm sure is always the case, but it always surprises me how different it appears on screen. The crew was also very friendly and a joy to be around, especially considering that they have to be to work at 3 am every day!
Deana was the host that filmed the cooking segment with me, and she was a joy! I got her involved in making some of my recipes which made it fun!

I hope you guys enjoyed the behind the scenes look and hearing a bit more about these amazing opportunities! I do have to say though, as amazing as it was to be on television, I truly do see everything as an opportunity to share about Jesus, which each one of us has the privilege to do on a daily basis no matter where we are, or what we do! After all...It's ALL His stage!
