A Kitchen Safe Haven
Updated: Aug 5, 2021
They say it’s the heart of the home, and I think they are pretty right about that. It’s like the opening chapter that sets the mood of our house. Nourishing our souls and bellies with all good things made with love and a little bit of seasoning. I am always inspired by people who love to cook and bake. The idea of gathering together to enjoy something so beautifully homemade, so raw and genuine…is there a better gift than the gift of food?
The kitchen is a safe place for me… A place where I have found healing and wholeness… A place to think, pray, and listen. It wasn’t until my late twenties that I really began to find my way around the kitchen. My confidence grew as I experimented with different ingredients. Anyone who enjoyably spends a great deal in the kitchen can relate to the idea that there is something so healing and freeing about it. Is it a sense of control… or perhaps a sense of freedom, a place with no real rules, a peaceful release from the day, who knows?
