Beautiful words and advise for any struggle you may be having in life. The book is broken into various letters from God based on various treasures God has provided for us. This would make a wonderful gift for any girl in your life.
His Treasure by Sheri Shepherd is one of the most encouraging reads I have read for this summer. The book is not very long and can be easily carried in a purse or bag to be read when you have a spare minute. I found this to be useful when waiting at a doctors office or during my lunch break at work. What was a surprise to me was what I found inside. The pages were elaborate and almost reminded me of the decorative paper that I use when I scrapbook. This book was made for a woman because what woman can resist beauty when she sees it. Even better was the layout of the book for each chapter was basically written in a love letter style written to the Christian woman from God. Each chapter was encouraging and it gave me a sense of how loved and precious I am to God. I also liked how each chapters theme was that of a treasure and that treasure was what the reader was compared to from the perspective of God and this perspective was backed up with scripture. I really enjoyed reading this book so much that I passed it on to the bible study coordinator at my church with a recommendation that we read one chapter to the ladies during each study to give them encouragement. I also recommend every Christian woman to read this book and to read it often because it will leave you feeling loved and special to God.
I purchased this book about a month ago and I can't put it down! Even my daughter (who is 13) and my husband are reading it! I feel like The Lord has laid it on my heart to use this book as an outreach to the women of my small town. I am currently in the planning stage of the outreach ministry that I want to center around handing out copies of the book. I came from a broken home with a absent father and a drug addicted mother. I feel The Lord wants me to use the experiences I have had and reach out to the abused and addicted women of my County with your book at the center! I feel He lead me straight to this book for that purpose! For someone who raised herself I can honestly say it confirmed what I already knew......he is the best Father anyone can ever hope to have. Your Letters spoke straight to my soul! I really wish there was a version of this for men. My husband would absolutely LOVE it!
Written from God's point-of-view as our Heavenly Father to His earthly daughters, this devotional speaks to the heart of all women. Each devotional contains a love-letter straight from God to inspire, encourage and uplift His precious daughters. Along with the each letter, a "Treasure of Truth" thought and a Scripture verse are included. The devotionals address subjects all women experience (roadblocks, perspectives, solace, salvation, direction, faithfulness) from a loving Father's perspective.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
This absolutely charming little devotional is truly a gem. From the size of the smaller-shaped book to the exquisite pictures that accompany each devotion, I enjoyed the entire package. The letters spoke to me full of hope, commitment, rest and unconditional love. Very, very well done, I would be proud to share this book or give as a gift_positively delightful!
