Hello Love! My name is Jessica Ratcliff - I have been told more than once that I have the “Gift of Gab.”  So I  finally took it to heart and decided to use my GIFT to launch a weekly podcast/talk show that helps listeners become more intentional about your Personal and Spiritual Growth.

I reside in Grand Rapids, MI; one of the fastest growing cities in the country! I'm best known as the author of the MAN-TRAPPIN'® COOKBOOK.  I have never been one to stand on the sidelines of life, due to my life choices and unexpected circumstances.  I had to reinvent myself several times. Through these experiences, I've learned ways to build resilience while maintaining an optimistic outlook on life. One of the most important things I've learned was to, walk by faith and not by sight. [2 Corinthians 5:7] 

"There's one thing -I don't like wasting time sugar coating things, by trying to paint you a perfect life in what is truly an Imperfect World." Why? you might ask. Because I have found freedom in the truth. The Bible reminds us in John 8:32   "And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

I often find myself telling people that I attended the "School of Hard Knocks." Only because I did not attend a traditional College or University. My real life educational experiences taught me how to live on both sides of the coin. "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty." [Philippians 4:12] Although I experienced some obstacle and oppositions it did not change the trajectory that God had for my life. "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  [ Jeremiah 29:11-13]

With my newfound hope and future in Christ, "there's one thing I will do:" I will forget what is behind me and strain toward what is ahead. paraphrase [Philippians 3:13-14]

Sample prayer:

Dear Lord, we used to think we could simply “live on our love,” but like the bread that keeps our bodies going, the love that keeps our relationship going is simply not enough. We rely on You for sustenance, Lord, and through Your Word, You have given us the stability and strength we need to keep the love light glowing.  We thank You. Amen.
Sample Recipe Title:

I’m Not Your Ex Barbecue Ribs: will make him say “WHO!” when it comes to his EX. These oven-broiled baby back ribs seasoned with LYSANDER’S® Meat Rub for Pork, topped with Bella Rouge® Chipotle Gourmet Barbecue Sauce...will have him licking his fingers and asking you to marry him all over again.

“Not on bread alone” Don't get your deepest satisfaction in life from food but from God.
