Book Review:Table for One

Table for One is a collection of narratives and reflections followed by introspective questions that can be used a personal devotional or for a group to reflect on life’s challenges and personal growth. Every woman has had a dream then woken up in the morning asking, “What was that all about?” and most of us have at least one shopping experience where you watch and wait and watch and wait for a dress or a pair of shoes to go on sale so you can bring them home where they belong. Author, Lahoma Dade shares the details of a shopping experience then transforms it into a metaphor for life. She recounts the details of a dream then explains how the characters and actions symbolized emotional baggage that were holding her down. Ms. Dade's reflections  show her maturity in her Christian walk and  her narratives have the potential to inspire the reader to look for their own "aha moments" in what appear to be mundane activities of life.

The author is a single woman and the title infers that the book's target audience is other singles. I was glad to find that the content is appropriate and targeted for any woman wanting to make the most of her life. The interior design  includes curvy, feminine graphics that give an elegant look to the  pages. Some of the journal questions were meaty and all require honesty. Table for One is an impressive premier work that would add to the library of any woman who enjoys literature with a reflective component.

Lahoma Dade is an entreprenuer and motivational speaker. She engages crowds with her abilities as a storyteller in person as well as on radio. She is committed to inspire all people to live purposefully and develop their gifts.  To learn more about her or to purchase Table for One, visit her website : http://www.tableforonebook.com/

Created Woman Devo Team-Meet Martha

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
