Angela Breidenbach's Gems of Wisdom--newly released!

Gems of Wisdom: For A Treasure-Filled Life
I wanted to share a book with you today. It's by my friend and fellow blogger, Angela Breidenbach and is titled Gems of Wisdom: For a Treasure-Filled Life.


Here's a brief description:
In Gems of Wisdom: For A Treasure-Filled Life you'll embark on a treasure hunt for God's unique gems of wisdom. Be empowered, learn to influence through your own life lessons, and preserve important relationships. Gems of Wisdom invites the reader on a treasure hunt to find important life concepts represented by the beautiful stones God created. Excellent for Bible study and book clubs as well as individual study.


I've had the opportunity to look at an review copy and have been touched by the stories Angie shares. Here's a look at the contents so you can see some of the issues in our lives that she deals with in the book:



1. What’s Fair? .............................................................................................................
2. Acceptance ..............................................................................................................
3. Opalescence ..............................................................................................................
4. Courage ..............................................................................................................
5. Reframing ..............................................................................................................
6. Forgiveness ..............................................................................................................
7. The Secret of Being Proactive ...................................................................................
8. The Adventure of Confidence .....................................................................................
9. Mercy ..............................................................................................................
10. Self-Care ..............................................................................................................
11. Paradigm ..............................................................................................................
12. Radiance ..............................................................................................................
13. Courtesy ..............................................................................................................
14. Consideration ............................................................................................................
15. Teambuilding .............................................................................................................
16. Filtering ..............................................................................................................
17. The Secret Treasures ................................................................................................
Epilogue ..............................................................................................................
Companion Guide .............................................................................................................

My favorite part of each chapter was the "Personal Place" where Angie tells a story in her own life or the life of someone else that illustrates the theme of the chapter. These stories were touching and at times heartbreaking. But Angie gives us the tools to work through them and start on a road to healing and completeness.

I hope you'll check out Angie's new release! I think any reader would find herself in at least one of the chapters. And would walk away feeling empowered to live in victory.

Thanks for stopping by, Eva!

Thank you, Missy, for having me on your blog. Eva, I'm very excited to have you stop by :-) It's really interesting to see your name because my mom's name was Eva. She's all through the book. It seems since she's passed that I'm meeting more and more ladies with the same name! Such an odd development. Probably a God thing too to help me continue to heal. All that to say, I'm so glad you came :-)
