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:
Lorrie Flem
Marybeth Whalen
Bonita Lillie
Cindy Rushton
Cory Lisk
Cyndi Kinney
Marilyn Boyer
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
Hope for Hurting Parents
The Homeschool Supermom
The Jewel of Contentment
Worry: Interest Paid Before It's Due
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.

You must be at least 18 years of age and a resident of the United States to win.
