Told through the wise soul of Momma Tee, these stories will find a way to your heart. This soul food presented by author Deborah Simon is a timeless journey of insight and reflection that offers simplicity to the complexities of any day.
Between these pages of Whispered Blessings are stories of hope, love, courage and the triumph of light over darkness. There is something in this collection for everyone irrespective of age, color or creed. As a skillful storyteller, Ms. Simon weaves tales of long gone days that are as relevant today as they were decades ago. These are stories that you can quietly sit with and enjoy or share with family, friends, classmates or work colleagues. The stories are personal, but as Ms. Simon skillfully and delicately tells them, she invites us to a quiet reflection and gives us permission to laugh and cry and soon we discover that they are indeed our stories too. This collection is a rare achievement.
Whispered Blessingsis a collection of beautifully written, heartfelt stories. As much as I like the book it doesn’t compare to the joy of hearing them told by the author—Deborah is an amazing storyteller.
Your stories bring life to the plight of Africans caught in the nightmare of slavery in America. You speak to the strengths of African individuals to endure the humiliation, yet still be able to display their productive talents and contribute to the welfare of their families, as well as the underground African Village Community on the Plantation.
Deborah, having had the honor of working with you, I can testify to your storytelling talents. Your heart is always in the right place.
As a minister and spiritual teacher I found Deborah’s workshop to be practical as well as inspirational. She involved us in a myriad ways during our time with her. We had the opportunity during StoryTalk to practice the storytelling techniques she so skillfully modeled for us and to ask questions.
Deborah is a Master Teacher. We will definitely invite her back to work her magic and spin her tales. She is a delight to work with—the perfect combination of professional and personable.
I received 100% positive feedback from workshop participants in response to StoryTalk offered through our community programs at AWAKENING.
