Charita H. Cadenhead had a realization one day that she thinks of the word “hope” almost every day, sometimes several times a day. She began to wonder if it was a common experience for people to have a single word that meant as much to them as “hope” meant to her. The idea for a book was born. She reached out on Facebook for possible co-authors and received responses from people she didn’t even know, people all over the country.
The books is called 1 Word: Discover, Reflect, and Connect with Words That Can Transform Your Life. Thirteen co-authors contributed essays on the words that were most meaningful to them, writing about words such as curves, home, destiny, stillness, and trust. Books are available for pre-sale now and will be available in bookstores after the official release on November 12.
There will be a release party for the book on Saturday, November 12, at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Hoover from noon-4:00. Four of the authors will speak at the event, and several others will be on hand to sign books. Tickets for the event cost $20 and can be purchased from the book’s website: 1wordbook.com.

In addition, she is the host of the Renew Refresh Reset Your Life TV podcast on Firetalk where she interviews people that have made significant changes in their lives.
