Betty Huizenga started the mentoring program, Apples of Gold, in 1995. It is a six-week program originally designed for the women of her church in Holland, MI. Apples of Gold was published in March 2000 by Cook Communications Ministries. The book is available at your local Christian bookstore. If unavailable locally, books and CD can be ordered from Focus on the Family at 1-800-437-4337, on family.org, or from this web site. Each session includes one hour of cooking class, one hour of Bible study based on Titus 2:3-5, and a fellowship hour enjoying the food that was prepared in class. The six lessons are led by six different mentors. Though designed to nurture and pamper the younger women, the mentors receive a great blessing as well. Lasting friendships are made through the ministry of Apples of Gold. The book Apples of Gold is a complete guide for starting the program in your church or neighborhood. The six lessons are taken from the Bible. There are suggested menus for the cooking mentor, and a prayer chorus for each lesson. Check the web site for testimonies, recipes and ideas for women taken from classes around the country. We'd love to hear from you.

Apples of Gold CD
Enhance your Apples of Gold class by singing the praise songs from each lesson together at the opening of your class. The Apples of Gold CD includes these songs, sung by "Polished Apples" in the Holland, Michigan class. Each song is a reminder of the lesson. Play the CD throughout the week to remind you of lessons learned in class.
