When you hear the term "First Lady" you likely either think of the spouse of an elected official, or the spouse of a pastor. Either way, for many, the term conjures the image of a Stepford wife like figure, a woman who exists solely as a supporting cast member of her husband's life in the public life.

When it comes to first ladies of the church variety, our founder has been one of the fortunate few who has only ever had the "not your typical first lady" kind. From a pharmacist turned public speaker, to a world renown cognitive psychologist, to a model turned fitness champion and global leader in the anti-human trafficking movement, Khadija's literally never had a "be cute and be quiet" sort of pastor's wife in her everyday ordinary life.

This cookie is named for Khadija's current first lady, Min. Brenda Patterson Troy, the most "I don't fit into your box" first lady you ever did see. In the multiverse, there's probably a version of Brenda (affectionately known as Mom T) who is a body builder. Tiny and ever on the cutting edge of fashion, Min. Troy is known in religious circles for being her authentic self in a way that gives others permission to do likewise. She's raised five children of her own, and helped to raise countless others. A megachurch pastor's wife who is daringly gorgeous, but not "too good" to walk the street of her church's resource poor neighborhood (or the streets of Italy) to help women who are (by choice or circumstance) working in the sex industry.

The First Lady cookie is a vegan almond thumbprint, intentionally vegan so its namesake can enjoy it, filled with a mix of non-GMO organic and Italian apricot jam. A deliciously unorthodox treat in honor of a woman who reminds in her everyday ordinary life that the expression of the Divine must include the feminine.
