“An Audience with The Queen”! Wow! I was Honored to Join the AMAZING Dr. Barbara L. King for Lunch at Baltimore Crab and Seafood Restaurant in the ATL!

Collage with Dr Barbara at Baltimore Crab

“An Audience with The Queen”! Wow! I was indeed honored to have had lunch with the AMAZING Dr. Barbara L. King. She is the senior pastor of Hillside International Truth Center. Recently, I presented a “How to Become an Author” workshop at her church. She was unable to attend. A few days later, she sent an email and invited me to join her for lunch at Baltimore Crab and Seafood restaurant (http://www.baltimorecrabandseafood.com/). We had such a wonderful time! She is one of my heroes! I had an opportunity to ask her many questions about life, ministry and service. Of course, everyone knows Dr. Barbara! Most of the guests dropped by our table to greet her! At the end of our meal, we were informed that lunch was covered! We don’t know who paid for it! But THANKS SO MUCH! When you are in the Cascade area, be sure to drop by this restaurant! The cuisine is simply delectable, and the banana pudding is to heavenly! You will love the AMBIANCE too! I look forward to including it in an article in the future! It is so inviting, and everyone is so FRIENDLY! Thanks Dr. Barbara for being such a blessing to so many! May God continue to bless you as you have blessed me and countless others!
