I know where I am needed. I know my calling. My calling is to give to children.
The air is still hot and sometimes a bit muggy, but a girl can’t help to feel a longing for the warmth of fall colors. Oh, the smell of a chocolate brown coat that’s drawing you to fall limp into a coffee shop couch while sipping lattes as the cool air blows outside the window. But how quickly the vision is a miss as the hot sun burns through the beautiful image you’ve created. So what’s a girl to do who longs for the fall but is still living in the hottest month of the summer? Good news, it’s easier than you think! Designers found way to pair the bright, bold summer colors that screamed, “Summer is here to stay,” with warm neutral staples that easily transition us from summer to fall. No more shades required entering your closet plus the money you spent on fun summer brights didn’t go down the drain!

September Issue of Created Woman will be packed full of Fashion, can't wait!
Saturday morning devotionals begin on Oct. 2. The writers are smart, courageous and they're women who are honest about life. Martha will share her personal stories and thoughts in the months with five weeks ,on the fifth Saturday.
Martha is excited to be a part of the Saturday morning devotional team. She has a collection of her own special devotional books and they have played a large part in her spiritual growth. It is her prayer that she, too, can become an instrument in setting the tone for women to have an uplifting day, as well as "grow in their walk with the Lord."
For the past 15 years, her passion has been helping women heal from the emotional pain of hurts and losses in their life. The Grieving Process, which she taught at her local church, led her to see testimonies of how God takes that was intended evil for us and turns it around to help save much people. [Genesis 50:20]
It was through her time teaching adult classes that she began to see the need for building a foundation for children to help them work through the losses they are faced with today. She is currently in the process of writing her first book to be published in the very near future entitled: Helping Hurting Children: A Journey of Healing.”
Martha is a former school teacher, wife of 44 years, Mother of two grown daughters, and has 2 grandchildren. She lives in Orange, Texas.
Don't miss the thought-provoking revelations that will challenge you to
'become the woman God created you to be,'
