Book Review: True Treasures

Chock full of godly wisdom and encouragement, True Treasures is a super resource to keep handy! 

True Treasures is a compilation of articles from TEACH Magazine.  (Click the hyperlink, or paste this address into your browser:  It's sort of a treasury of the classics!   

True Treasures is divided into six chapters, with special focuses on the particular responsibilities of women: 
  1. Jewels that Make the Heart Sparkle (matters of the heart)
  2. Marriages of Solid Gold
  3. Parenting Pearls:  Practical and Priceless
  4. Homemaking that Dazzles like Diamonds
  5. Homeschooling Nuggets of Wisdom
  6. Godly Living that Glitters (spiritual growth)
The articles and testimonies are written by a variety of seasoned, wise women; the encouragement and challenges seemed to jump right off the pages and into my heart.  The articles which most blessed me:
  • "Slow and Steady," which encouraged me to correct my view of my heavenly-assigned job (all the seemingly mundane duties which mothering young children involves!).  Oh, how I need this one--every day! 
  • "It's Raining, It's Pouring," which reminded me why godly submission is so beautiful and powerful.
  • "Do Your Children Rise and Call You Blessed, or Grouchy?" which called me to discipline myself to become a "morning person." (Ugh!  Apparently, I can not be both a morning person AND a night owl.)
  •  "In Search of Serenity," how to find rest for my soul!  Physical rest is not nearly so essential as spiritual rest and trust in God!
  • "A Strong Woman versus a Woman of Strength"  There's a BIG difference!
True Treasures is attractive enough to give as a gift--and what a gift this would make!  (I'm having trouble deciding whether to add it to my library or to bless someone else!)  Through May 31, 2011, TEACH is offering a coupon code for $4 off of True Treasures (only one per customer, per order):  GabbyMom
