IT’S ALL GRAVY, Y’ALL: Beloved Georgia entrepreneur Kenyatta Bell defies toughest of odds, starts a new restaurant in rural town of Greenville


Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision, and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2 NKJV)


EPIC EATS

SEASON OF THE OVERFLOW — An accomplished, progressive businesswoman in her own right, Kenyatta Bell, 46, has been exalted mightily to become the face of Our Willows Eatery, a Greenville, Georgia-based establishment that has become a Southern fixture for its casual dining experience featuring a menu of fresh ingredients and homemade dishes, salads, sauces, gravy, and desserts, just to name a few.

Just after 7 o’clock EST Sunday morning, Kenyatta Bell hastened to social media, where she deemed it necessary to appropriately give God the praises He so rightfully deserves.

Said Bell in a rather spirited post that was comprised of 27 tagged followers:
“All things are possible. Things that were impossible are possible with God. We can do all things through Christ who is our strength. Let’s stand on His word, keep our faith in Him, hold on to His unchanging hand, and be strong knowing that all things (good, bad, ugly, painful, traumatic and catastrophic) are working together for our good. Even when I did not know, I just trusted Him and kept walking by faith.”
Much to her delight, it is due in large part to Bell’s unwavering, bend-but-don’t-break faith that has miraculously given way to arguably her grandest blessing to date.

Located at 108 Court Square in the heart of Greenville, while Our Willows Eatery is in its infancy stages, this establishment has enjoyed a considerable amount of success since it officially opened for operations in Spring 2021.

Interestingly enough, as Bell explains, although her newly-erected restaurant comes amid humble beginning, one of things she was determined to never place by the wayside is her faith.

And, the rest, as they say, was history.


CARRYING ON LEGACIES — “I’ve doing this for three months. However, I was raised by my grandparents and watched my grandma cook amazing food, and I watched my mom cook some great food too,” said Kenyatta Bell, who was also inspired by her Mattie Jackson, her high school home economics teacher, to move forward with her latest entrepreneurial milestone. (Ms. Mattie Jackson) ignited my passion for cooking and even competing. (My personal mission for starting this restaurant is to) serve my hometown, meeting the needs of the people, and help leadership with revitalizing our community after the global pandemic. Our Willow Eatery serves everybody, and we love serving everyone.”

“After a catastrophic faith building experience, God opened the door for me to go back home and serve my community,” Bell, Making Headline News Woman of The Year for 2019, said.

And, as a result, Bell has become the beneficiary of an overflow of blessings ever since.

A native of Gay, Georgia, Bell is especially known as the catalyst for the Epic Management Group, a successful ministry that was spearheaded in the Atlanta area via iHeart Radio B96.3 and is aired by way of a slew of airwaves.



Widely regarded as Epic Life Ministry, this company has also launched a social media teaching — a segment that’s collectively conducted by Epic Life staffers Gina Beverly, Danielle Sunderhouse and Corey Watts — whereby it has garnered a global audience.

Generally, Epic Management Group has partnered with The Lighthouse Radio Station to host an array of what company officials describe as “epic life experiences,” most notably for middle and high school students.

During a weekend interview with Making Headline News, Bell announced that a relaunching of Epic Life will take place in Greenville at a time and date that have yet to be announced.


UNYIELDING SUPPORT — “I am so excited about what God is doing, and I am so thankful to God for trusting me with this special assignment of serving my hometown community, meeting the needs of the people and revitalizing our community,” Bell said. “We will be better together.”

As for her new restaurant, for a lack of better words, it’s all gravy, literally and figuratively (which, according to the Urban Dictionary, essentially means there’s an abundance of good things in the given circumstance).

“This venture is just starting, but I know it’s going to have a global impact on the world,” Bell said. “That’s what kingdom assignments do.”



Long before starting a restaurant even crossed her mind, Bell for years had spent a considerable amount of time watching a few of the finest cooks in her family, most notably her grandmother, Lena Bell, and her mother, Ruby Bell.

“I’ve doing this for three months. However, I was raised by my grandparents and watched my grandma cook amazing food, and I watched my mom cook some great food too,” said Kenyatta Bell, who was also inspired by her Mattie Jackson, her high school home economics teacher, to move forward with her latest entrepreneurial milestone. (Ms. Mattie Jackson) ignited my passion for cooking and even competing. (My personal mission for starting this restaurant is to) serve my hometown, meeting the needs of the people, and help leadership with revitalizing our community after the global pandemic. Our Willow Eatery serves everybody, and we love serving everyone.”

Even before the grand opening of new venture, Bell recalls how God had miraculously steered her family through what she describes as “our own personal pandemic.”


OH, HOW SWEET IT IS — “After a catastrophic faith building experience, God opened the door for me to go back home and serve my community,” Bell, Making Headline News Woman of The Year for 2019, said.

“That was very traumatic and turned painfully catastrophic really fast,” Bell explained. “All I had was my faith in God. He walked me through the 23rd Psalm daily. I prayed, worshipped, fasted, and tithed my way to a better day. I couldn’t stop because my family’s future was at stake. If God did it for me, best believe He’s going do it for you.”

And just like, Bell and her family are collectively enjoying the fruits of their labor, their latest of which has come full circle in the heart of Greenville, a rural Meriwether County town that is comprised of roughly 876 residents, according to the latest U. S. census.

After all, if she’s said it once, she’s said it a countless number of times.

That is, “Things that were impossible are possible with God.”
