Overview

As the wife of Focus on the Family founder, Dr. James Dobson, Shirley has devoted her life to the ministry and embraced many opportunities to entertain guests. From dignitaries to backdoor neighbors to the family, Shirley has opened her heart and spread the table for all. Danae, James and Shirley’s daughter, remembers the gatherings and lovingly recalls what her mother taught her about being kind and extending hospitality.

Now mother and daughter have gathered the stories of those celebrations and get-togethers to inspire others. They’ve collected time-honored family recipes and dreamed up more than a dozen seasonal parties to share with readers. Award-winning photographer Julie Johnson has artfully photographed each one with special attention to the delicious dishes and lovely table settings.

This beautiful book, as much a family memoir as it is a cookbook and a lesson in blessing others through the art of hospitality, will captivate readers, cooks, and party planners alike.

Reviewed by Tamera Lawrence for Readers Favorite The family dinner table is lacking participants. Etiquette is unknown. Hospitality is a forgotten pastime. But it doesn’t have to be that way. "Welcome to Our Table" by Shirley and Danae Dobson is a guided tour into dining and socializing with friends, family or just a stranger in need of a bit of care. This enchanting book is filled with delicious, easy to make recipes complete with uplifting scripture and inspirational stories. This beautiful book is stunning with its vibrant pictures of not only eye-catching dishes but beautiful dressed tables for any occasion. 'Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter' is covered with ideas on decorating, entertaining and dining. Family traditions, values and uplifting stories are shared. The book is topped off by hostess interviews. "Welcome to Our Table" is a thoughtfully written book that packs so much into its pages. It would make a wonderful addition to church libraries, or a gift to a friend or perhaps a new wife who is looking for a bit of help on entertaining or how to find that special touch of her own. The stories are warm and gracious and come from the heart. Shirley and Danae Dobson are the perfect hostesses as they gather you around their table and make you feel like family. After all, they are a mother and daughter team on this effort. I highly recommend this book for so many reasons and look forward to trying out some of the tempting recipes for my own family.
