It Really is a Small World After All...
Apparently, as a starry-eyed newlywed in 1987, I would meet (and work with) someone who would go on to become famous one day.
The place... Euless, Texas. (That is a city between Dallas and Fort Worth in case you are wondering.)
The setting....Euless First Baptist Church.
I had the privilege while in graduate school to work as staff at Euless First Baptist Church. I worked as the Assistant Director of the Crisis Pregnancy Center. While in that position, I was mentored by the Director, a young Godly woman whose husband was a seminary student. Jane was a delight to be around and she always kept her sense of humor with her. She was ministry-focused but business-minded.
We left Euless in 1989 and moved to Shreveport. Jane and I kept in touch initially but you know how life goes.
We moved to Birmingham in 1999. Somewhere in the 2000s....maybe 2006, I saw a news article on Jane and her sister in the Birmingham News! She was here! So I called her and we had a "catch-up chat" and it was good. We finally saw each other at a Christmas church event and realized we hadn't changed (nor aged) one bit. It was a refreshing time of reconnection and to see each other's children.
But how does this connect to meeting someone famous?
Remember when I told you Jane was ministry-focused but business-minded? Well, you are not going to believe who Jane is.....she is the co-founder and creator of E-mealz.com. I don't know how many members E-mealz has but it has almost 50,000 fans on Facebook. That's saying alot. But the goal of E-mealz is to help you "make time for family". What a great goal! You can check out E-mealz by clicking on the banner below. It truly is a revolutionary concept! And remember, you never know who you know that will go on to do something revolutionary or become famous!!
