The Chick-fil-A restaurant in Pace, Florida was just about to open when I took my daughter to interview for a position. She was 16 years old and a rising senior in high school. While we knew that working there would be a good part-time job, little did we know that it would be such a supportive aid to her education.
Katie worked at the Pace store part-time through her senior year and then her f... read more >
I was a single guy just out for lunch at Chick-fil-A. I was having a bad day and eating Chick-fil-A was really brightening my day, so I took a picture of my lunch and posted it to Facebook. Later that night I received a comment to my post from an old friend who said that she was jealous. I innocently invited to take her to Chick-fil-A if she drove the 2 hours from where she lived to visit me.

In the mid 1990's, my cousin, Connie, was trying to have another baby. She already had two healthy little boys, but suffered two heartbreaking miscarriages a couple of years after their birth. She began going to a specialist and soon after, became pregnant again and found she was to have a baby girl! How excited we were to hear of the upcoming bundle of joy to be named Emily Ann.

I guess you could say that February 10, 2004 was not my best day. While my day started out as a routine business day, it ended in tragedy that changed my life forever.
While parking my vehicle at a hotel, an assailant jumped into the front seat of my vehicle, put a gun to my head and demanded money. I grabbed the gun while it was still in the assailant’s hand and noticed a second armed person app... read more >
We are huge fans of Chick-fil-A and our favorite is the Northpark Mall Restaurant in Davenport, Iowa. We're both retired so our schedules give us ample time to visit often. (And it ends the discussion on who has to cook dinner that night.)
The staff is very friendly, but our favorite is Marcie. We'll let someone go ahead of us just so she can wait on us.

My husband and I were so excited to welcome our 3rd child, a baby girl, on September 7, 2012. We have 2 boys (6 and 3) so this little princess was a special addition. Her birth was wonderful and we were in love with her from the start!
We were ready to leave the hospital 2 days later when a routine discharge revealed a congenital heart defect called a VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect). She was... read more >
As the details of my wedding day unfolded and decisions were being made, I began to think about and imagine what the entire day would look like. Not just the moments of the ceremony and the celebration with friends and family, but also the moments leading up to that glorious walk down the aisle.
I knew I would be surrounded by my sweetest and dearest friends during my last moments as a single wo... read more >
Blake was turning 16 and after diligently searching for a good deal within our price range, we found him a 1995 T-Top Camaro in his favorite color blue with only 37,000 original miles on the 18 year old vehicle. "Now, how do we give it to him?", was the question. Since our family loves Chick-fil-A, we conspired to meet at Chick-fil-A for dinner. There we had a Chick-fil-A team member attach the... read more >
