The Spice for Life

This website is a celebration of love in honor of Patsy Cook, well-known as the "Spice Lady" of  the airwaves.  This site includes several of her television & radio shorts as well as many more stories, recipes and pictures. It's all her words.  This is her legacy, lovingly put together by her family

What we've collected...
We've collected over 30 of her TV shorts as well as many more video clips from her family.

Before Patsy became known on telelvision, she was on the airwaves.  Listen to some of her stories here.

We've published her stories as well for your inspiration.

As she would say... “Slap yo’ grandma good! 
But don’t try it...”

A Prayer of Blessing

Dear Heavenly Father,

We are asking your blessing upon each person that visits this website that they may be filled with the knowledge of Your will and clear direction in their lives. We pray they will have great wisdom and understanding in all of their lifestyle choices and especially in spiritual things so they will live the kind of lives that honor You in every way. We pray they will produce fruit in every good work and grow in their knowledge of You. We pray you will strengthen them with your great power, so they can do all things that you call them to do and that they might be a Godly influence on all those who know them. We pray they will endure all things with patience that they will not give up when trouble comes. We pray they will experience much joy as they give thanks for your promise to provide all of their needs and especially for eternal life with You in heaven.
In Jesus Name we pray, Amen
Colossians 1:9-12
