Ladies of TASTE,
  • As we approach the holidays, we wanted to remind you of our upcoming schedule.  Can you believe that we only have two sessions left  before the New Year?
  • We will be off this Thursday in celebration of Thanksgiving.  While many of us will have a smaller celebration this year because of the pandemic, we still want to wish you, your family, and friends a joyful celebration!  During this holiday, let us remember Kristen Fisher's advice to recognize, remember, record, and recount all of the gifts God has given to us.  As we do this, we can recommit ourselves to God.
  • Following Thanksgiving, we will have 2 sessions during Advent (12/3 and 12/10).  Then, we will be off for 4 weeks in celebration of Christmas and New Years and TASTE will resume on 1/14/21.  You will certainly be in our thoughts and prayers especially during the weeks we will not be together.


  • UPCOMING CONFERENCE — Would you like to attend a Free Online Advent Retreat?  Come spend time with Leah Darrow and Sr. Miriam on Nov 28th and prepare to welcome the Lord into your heart this Advent season.  Following, there will be a Live Q&A. They are also offering a Premium Ticket which includes a bunch of awesome goodies!  LINK
