I received a copy of this book from Tyndale for review. I received no compensation for my review and all opinions are my own.
Based on her writing, I would say that Sheri has a love for the Lord and heart for women. She desires that the women will grasp the love that God has for them and the blessings that come to a woman who loves the Lord, increasingly trusts and obeys Him.
I found many of the Treasures to be very encouraging, convicting and they touched tender spots where I have emotional wounds that need the Lord's healing.
Sheri's love and passion for the Lord comes through in her writing.
I also want to share how I struggled with this book. My struggle is with the style or genre of this book as if God is speaking to the reader. I would have felt more comfortable if instead the writer was praying to God. It's easy to not accurately represent God, because we see Him through our own unique perspective that is colored by our life and experiences. I also felt like the sovereignty and holiness of God was somewhat lacking. The focus seemed to be on the person to whom God was talking and less focused on God. As portrayed, God seemed to be gently trying to persuade the beloved child or daughter and was seldom revealed as God, the absolute Authority to Whom we will give an account. I would have also appreciated if scripture references had been given that would line up to the words God was speaking.
I would like to thank Tyndale House Publishers for providing a complimentary copy of this book.
I really don't like writing negative reviews, and I like Sheri Rose Shepherd (I read, reviewed, and enjoyed Your Heart's Desire), so let me start with the positive. This book is absolutely beautiful. It's a gorgeous padded hardcover book with stunningly beautiful color pages inside with lovely illustrations. It looks like it would be a great book to present as a gift.
On the negative side, I did not like the style of Sheri writing letters "from God". She speaks in the first person tone as if she's speaking directly from God to you. I've not really seen this writing style before (other than the aforementioned Your Heart's Desire, but in that book it was brief blurbs here and there, not the whole book, so I just skimmed/skipped over them) and it makes me *extremely* uncomfortable. As a human being, I don't feel right putting words in God's mouth and speaking/writing them as directly from Him - I feel like it's a scary thing to put words in God's mouth that didn't come directly from His Word - the Bible. I understand what she's trying to do here, but it feels wrong in my spirit. God has given us all the Words He wants to give us in the Bible, and I don't feel like it's our place to give Him new words that we've made up and sign His name to it.
I know Sheri has a heart for the Lord and helps many women, but a better writing style probably would have been as a form of prayer TO the Lord, as opposed to a letter directly (supposedly) FROM the Lord. Because of all this, I can't personally really recommend this book. I'm sure others may feel differently and that's okay, too.
