Review of "His Treasure" by Sheri Rose Shepherd

Imagine receiving a love letter from your heavenly Father. Imagine God telling you that you are worthy to Him, you are His treasure, and that He loves you more than you could possibly imagine. That's exactly what you'll find in these pages. 

Sheri Rose Shepherd has written us beautiful love letters from God based on what God has told us in His Word. These letters range from Encouragement, Comfort when we're discouraged, and Faith to conquer our fears. 

First of all, the first thing I noticed about this book was the beautiful illustrations! The pages are filled with photos of beautiful flowers, antique keys, strings of pearls and breathtaking gems. Many of the pages are made to look like old parchment paper...something fit for a King. 

Second, the words Sheri has written are just beautiful. She has paraphrased Bible verses of what our Heavenly Father has said in His Word. She makes it easy to understand. I think so many of us look at God as a Father who is stern and ready to punish us for our sins. But this is not the case! God shows us this in his Word. He shows us that He is a loving, merciful and forgiving God. He weeps when we weep and cares so very much for us. 

Also, and this is somewhat off topic, but I love the dedications in the beginning of this book. Sheri dedicates this book to Mother, her Step-Mother, Spiritual Mother and her Mother-in-Love. I just love the way she says Mother-In-Love. I think it gives an insight into the character of this author. That she can recognize that she has another mother, not just by law, but by Love. I have always wanted this type of relationship. I just think it is beautiful and says a lot about her as a Christian woman. 

I absolutely love this book! I love that it is small and compact despite the fact that it holds so much content. I would love to see girls of all ages reading this book. Teenagers, young mothers, middle age women and elderly women. These words are beautiful truths and they come from God Himself. 

I rate this book as 5 stars.
