Very moving Jan 9, 2005
Even though the book is aimed at parents, I am 15 years old, and I loved it! It contains a lot of great lessons for coming close to God. There were so many times I wanted to cry while reading this. It is so moving, and has something for everyone, parent or not! This book really is a precious treasure!
Proud to be a Mom May 6, 2003
This book is a beautiful witness to all mothers about our special treasures. Whether we have one child or ten each is precious. Elizabeth Matthews tells of the joys and trials of her very special little boy who brings her so much "golden treasure." The book reminded me that it is our perspective on things that makes them a burden or a treasure. This is a wonderful Mother's Day Gift!
A heart warming story Mar 14, 2003
This is a wonderful book that pertains to everyone. My husband read it and loved it too. We both laughed and cried. It taught me to count my blessings and stop complaining about little things we have no control over. The book is based on how Beth relies on her faith to get her through difficult times. I recommend this book to everyone -not just mothers with a special needs child.
Precious Treasure Mar 9, 2003
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for ways to strengthen their spirituality. Beth reveals how her faith comes into play daily, hourly and moment to moment. Her son Patrick is one of the main focuses of the book. He is autistic. I learned about autism, yet felt that the focus of the book was much broader than autism. Beth is married and the mother of 10 children. She has a lot of wisdom and faith from her own personal journey. Anyone could benifit from this book who is looking for ways to enhance their life in difficult and/or not difficult times in their life through faith and trust in a power greater than themself.
A book for all Feb 23, 2003
This is a book for all parents and all grandparents. A book for anyone who is struggling with the problems of everyday life. I laughed and cried and read the book at one sitting. Ms. Matthews writes from actual life in a simple and loving way. I highly recommend it.
