Hurricane Katrina was a huge blessing for me. I had been walking in my purpose unbeknownst to myself since I was a little girl; it was not until after the hurricane that I realized I was walking in my calling. I was called to make people feel good, whether through feeding their souls with encouragement or feeding their stomachs with something I created in the kitchen. I knew then after that devastation that my purpose was to feed souls and stomachs with compassion, joy and love. Doing so came naturally.
