Good Morning!! I received a phone call yesterday from Nicole, she is on the air for FOX 34. " Someone suggested the CIG for a segment Thursday morning, it is live and early, will you do it?" I instantly thought.... sharing the CIG with others, ABSOLUTELY, YEA God. I hang up, I proceed to do the "HAPPY DANCE" all around the kitchen, my guest wondering if I am having a siezure and then It hits me... I look at Shelby, my excitment now only a memory, "Oh mylanta I cant do it, speaking in front of others, no way.... Alysha you can do it". There is a running joke aroud here, when people asked my name, I tell them "Alysha", that way if their is a problem, they will ask for that name.... well yall get the point. Back to my delimma.... I have stepped out on faith in every part of my life and this one fear, I just cant let go. I am great one on one more than 3 oh mylanta, I cant even describe it. My verse this morning, Psalms 138:3 " On the day I called to You, You answered me. You made me strong and brave". I know the Lord has a huge sense of humor when living my purpose driven life is so far out of my comfort zone. Happy Tuesday yall.... Is there something your facing today, their is nothing to small or big for our heavenly father, claim this verse yall, I will be repeating till Thursday:) God is great all the time!!!
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
