#Dovetales is BACK this Sunday, September 16, 2018 and we are bringing you a sweet testimony from my special guest Lauretta M. Pierce; CEO & Founder of the global gourmet, inspirational cookie business called #Covenant #Cookies. Yes, available in 20 flavors, many designs, 5 languages, in Braille and containing Bible-based inspirational messages… I am hungry just thinking about it. But, before Lauretta could inspire the world one cookie at a time she struggled with low self-esteem, depression, domestic abuse, and medical complications from a head-on car collision. Sadly, the painful thing about life is it’s not always sweet nor does it promise to taste good throughout. In fact, when struggling we can often hear…that is how the cookie crumbles reminding us all that the ingredients of life can often leave a sour taste in our mouths making one believe that they cannot overcome, survive or thrive–in the end. So, I encourage you to join me as I unpack the testimony of a woman who promises to bring the Godly flavor back to your life. Today, Lauretta Pierce gives God the glory for breaking the spiral of abuse which had its clutches in her, because TODAY it’s time to taste and see that the Lord is indeed GOOD. The conversation begins at 2:30 pm eastern time.
