Reviewed by Cindy Loven

Working on the preface that God keeps things he treasures in a box, similar to the one the author received when her Grandfather passed away, Leigh McLeroy, brings us a small inspirational book, full of descriptions of the things that she has imagined that God has treasured over the years.

An enjoyable book, with thirteen chapters of inspirational writing, describing the reasons that God would perhaps treasure these things she has used, for example the fig leaves that Adam and Eve tried to cover their nakedness with, or perhaps the bloodstained wood, from the Israelites putting the blood on the doorposts to protect them from the death angel. Twelve chapters with treasures of God, the final chapter includes a list of things that the author has treasured, that have been milestones, and momentos of her walk with Christ. Then end note is a discussion guide and questions about what you would place in your box.

A lovely book that is easy to read and is delightful. 202 pages $14.99 US 4 stars
