TEACH Treasures - A Review
Hi there everyone. The wait is finally over. The first review of Gabby Moms is here.
And it is a great one. "How great?" you ask. So great that I already pre-ordered 2 copies before they even went to the printing press. How is that for a recommendation?
I was actually the proof reader for this book, TEACH Treasures. So I had the privilege of being one of the first to read it. As soon as I read the electronic rough draft, I knew I just had to have this book.
"Why?" you may ask. Because it truly is a treasure, a keepsake, a must have. I knew this from the moment I opened my special delivery. The book arrived with a lovely blue ribbon tied around it. The cover of the book is soft cover; but it has the appearance of blue leather with gold embossed edges. So although a new soft cover, it has the appearance of an heirloom, an old treasure on your grandmother's shelf. Delightful before you even crack the cover.
And inside? Well, if you are a subscriber to Lorrie Flem's magazine, you have had a taste of what TEACH (now Eternal Encouragement) is all about. But this is the best of the best, the cream of the crop, from the last decade. I hesitate to describe it that way, because every article in TEACH is superb, but I know no
better way to describe it.
In case you have never had the privilege of reading an issue of Lorrie's magazine, let me give you a hint of what to expect. Lorrie has a vision to inspire, encourage, and challenge other ladies in their daily walk as a Christian, a wife, and a mother. No fluff, no twaddle, no full-page ads flaunting the latest trends and fads, no articles on topics that would make a sailor blush. It is a God-honoring magazine that has been a helping hand and supportive shoulder to thousands of wives and mothers. You can view some sample pages.
So here is a little glimpse of what to expect from TEACH Treasures. It is divided into 6 chapters.
Chapter 1 - Jewels that Make the Heart Sparkle
Chapter 2 - Marriages of Solid Gold
Chapter 3 - Parenting Pearls: Practical and Priceless
Chapter 4 - Homemaking that Dazzles like Diamonds
Chapter 5 - Homeschooling Nuggets of Wisdom
Chapter 6 - Godly Living that Glitters
The book has 2 indexes, one by author and one by topic.
Some of the authors:
30 authors in all
Some of the articles:
A Cure for the Gimmies
A Time to be Silent
Discipline Versus Punishment
Give Them Your Heart

71 articles in all
TEACH Treasures will encourage you in your many roles: As a Christian, a wife, mother, homemaker, homeschool teacher, and friend. After reading through it, I feel like I just had a pep talk from a dear friend. "Yes, you can do it and do it well," says my dear friend as she cheers me on.
Disclaimer: I received a free issue of TEACH treasures in exchange for writing this review. My opinion is simply that, just my opinion.
Coupon Code GabbyMom: $4 off your order of TEACH Treasures. Expires May 31, 2011. Only one per customer and per order.
CONTEST: I love this book. As I mentioned earlier, I already own it. So, I am going to give my review copy to one lucky reader. This will be a wonderful addition to your home library. It will also make a great gift for a lady that needs a boost . . . a sister, a friend, a pastor's wife. But my guess is that after you see it, you will decide to hold on to it, the Treasure that it is and buy another one for that dear friend.
