The theme for this book was actually inspired by two things. First, the name given to the Women’s Encounter 2013, “She is a Pearl of Great Price”. Secondly and most importantly was a gift that my husband, Richie, had given to me. It was one of the most uniquely beautiful pieces of jewelry that I had ever seen. The two things just went together. So I began to write this story with the anointing of God and the gift of expression that He had given me.
I have had a personal relationship with my LORD since 1974. Before that time, I knew about God but since I came to know Jesus as a personal friend, I know that He is with me always because He lives in my heart. I know this without any doubt because I feel His love for me every moment of every day. God has blessed me with the Gift of expression. My Gift takes many forms. This is the first time I have put this Gift in the form of a story.
I am led by God to hear from Him and share His words of encouragement in church meetings with the oversight and covering of the leadership of the church that I attend. God has blessed me with this Gift and I am humbled by it, but I also know that I must share this Gift with others.
