You cant do better than my friends Michelle Cox and John Perrodin if youre looking for spiritual guidance leading to real growth. When I think of them both, what comes to mind beyond their commitment to stellar writing and careful Scriptural scholarship is a deep love for God and a reverence for His Word. Add to that their example as spouses and parents in two long-term marriages, and you have a pair of authors uniquely qualified to mine the unsearchable riches of Christ. Immerse yourself in God Glimpses...and come away more disciplined, consistent, and prepared to serve.

Catching a glimpse of God is one of the great joys and encouragements in our daily walk with the Lord. Im so glad Michelle and John wrote the God Glimpses books. Its a brilliant idea - stuffing jewelry boxes and tool boxes with clever concepts to enhance our relationship with God.

God Glimpses from the Jewelry Box is a lovely collection of devotions designed to help readers find the jewels hidden in everyday life. I especially like the "Jewelry Insurance Inventory Form" at the end of each chapter that asks readers to consider where their treasure is, and encourages them to store up treasures in heaventhose that will never lose their value. A jewel of a book!

If there is one thing I hold dear in my heart, it's the heirloom jewelry in my jewelry box ... not necessarily for the monetary value, but because of the stories my mother shared with me as she showed them to me back when they took up residence in the velvety recesses of her own jewelry box. But even more important than the jewelry passed down from great-great grandmothers, great-aunts, grandmothers, and my own mother is the legacy of being a woman after God's heart, which they also passed on to me. Within the words of this book, Michelle Cox has brilliantly woven the joy of the bling with the truth of the jewels, and the high value of God glimpses from the jewelry box.

My friend, author Michelle Cox who wears "bling for the King," has written a sparkling new devotional God Glimpses from the Jewelry Box that will perfectly fit anyone who loves to shine! Dig in and discover the treasures that are sometimes hidden under tarnished heirloom silver, or the tossed aside strand of priceless pearls. Though you wear your charm bracelet every day, did you ever think of each charm as a memento of Gods faithfulness? Cox takes us through thirty different kinds of jewelry, inserting fascinating stories and prompting us to ask questions of our heart and soul in the process. Who knew that a pocket watch and earrings could spur us on to greater commitment to God who is the Creator of all true jewels? I greatly enjoyed this devotional and highly recommend it for those who, like me, fill half our luggage with statement necklaces!

From the time I was a tiny girl, I had a fascination with jewelry. I spent hours going through both my mother and my grandmothers jewelry boxeseach piece telling a story. Michelle and John have captured just that, the reminiscent feeling of pouring through those boxes. I will not be able to look at my own jewelry box the same. Instead of glitz and bling, I now see the fingerprints of God and my life story. This book will be my go-to gift for all my girlfriends. This is a "curl up on the couch with a cup of coffee" feel-good book. Now Im going to accessorize, accessorize, and sparkle for Jesus!
