The goodness of God led Amanda to repentance when she was a 12-year-old girl, and despite a heart prone to wander, He daily draws her to Himself. She continues to attend Lehigh Valley Baptist Church where she was raised, and enjoys sharing what God is teaching her on her instagram account (@mandyncoffee22). When Amanda isn’t working or sleeping, she is usually trying a new crockpot recipe, sipping a coffee delicacy, or finding an excuse to show off pictures of her cutie-pie niece & nephews.

Rachel was born and raised in a Christian home. She was saved at a young age for which she is thankful. She has lived in Pennsylvania her whole life. She worked in a bakery for 16 years before moving on in another direction. She has enjoyed cooking and baking over the years especially those foods rich in history. She is passionate about history and the stories of those who had so little yet were able to provide meals for their families. She appreciates the ingenuity behind the recipes written by those ladies who have pioneered the trail of food preparation before us. Food is an essential part of life and there is nothing sweeter to her than sitting together and sharing a meal together with family and friends.

Crystal grew up in the world but God used her back injury to draw her to Himself through the miracle of salvation.  She was born again in 2016 and since then has possessed the yearning desire to learn more about His miraculous truths in His perfect Word.  Oftentimes, she journals from her hammock near a stream and hopes to serve the Lord in a sailboat one day!  In order to choose the title of her column, Crystal combined her heart’s desire with Proverbs 31:14, "She [the virtuous woman] is like the merchant’s ships; she bringeth her food from afar."
