Need an encouraging book to read? Here it is... Jul 24, 2001
Barbara Johnson's work was new to me so I hesitated before reading God's Most Precious Jewels....there was no reason to hesitate! It wasn't full of preachy or trite messages, but real stories about real women with real problems many of us can relate to in one way or another. It somehow helps, knowing others feel as we do and yet they still keep on going and keep their faith.
By helping others and sharing their love of God and His love for us, these women have made me feel more whole and less incomplete and less alone. I am encouraged by the stories in this book and moved to tears but brought out of the tearful state by the quotes and quips that end each chapter. When I finished reading, I felt stronger and uplifted.
