Book Review: True Treasures

I had the pleasure of reviewing True Treasures  for Teach Magazine, now known as Eternal Encouragement Magazine, you can check out their website at

True Treasures is a compilation of articles that have been published in Teach Magazine over the last 10 years.  They took the most encouraging articles and compiled them into one great book.  Reading this book became the highlight of my day.  As a wife, mom, and homemaker I received great encouragement and inspiration.  Before I knew what had happened my house was staying cleaner and my attitude was a little better. 

True Treasures is divided into six chapters that each have their special focus: Jewels that Make the Heart Sparkle, Marriages of Solid Gold, Parenting Pearls: Practical and Priceless, Homemaking That Dazzles Like Diamonds, Homeschooling Nuggets of Wisdom, and Godly Living that Glitters.

I loved each chapter and it is nearly impossible to say what my favorite articles are since they were all great, but the articles that impacted me the most were: "I'm a Homemaker...Period," "Do Your Children Rise and Call You Blessed, or Grouchy?" and "Letting Your Home Spread God's Message." 

Don't you love the title "Do your Children Rise and Call You blessed, or Grouchy.?"  I was convicted before I even started reading the article!  That article helped change my perspective on when I should be up.  My drive to sleep in just five minutes longer has dissipated.  I want my children to call me blessed! 

This book really has helped me become more focused on my homemaking.  It reminded me that our homes are also a place for ministry, something I easily forget. This treasure had so many nuggets of important wisdom that I can easily say it is...

highly recommended!
