Cherished by Kim Cash Tate - REVIEWED!

About the Book: (from the publisher)

Before healing can begin for Kelli and Heather, they need to believe they are worth cherishing.

Kelli London once dreamed of being a songwriter. As crazy as it seemed, she hoped that God would use the lyrics that came to her even while she slept. She dreamed about Brian too, that the love they shared as high-school students would grow into marriage. But choices that still haunt her destroyed those dreams. Until now—when a series of love letters reawakens her hope for the future.

Heather Anderson's life has spun out of control—first, an affair with a married man, then a one-night stand with the drummer of a popular Christian band has left her devastated. Broken and alone, she cried out to the only One able to save her. He met her there, but it was just the beginning. Because now she must take a different path. And the one God has planned for her looks nothing like the one she envisioned.

As Kelli and Heather awaken to their true worth, they find the freedom to pursue their dreams—and relationships—based on the security of knowing God's unconditional love.

My Thoughts:
The details are very different, but I am experiencing Kelli's journey in my own life right now. Needless to say, this was an emotionally challenging book for me to read, but the tears I shed at the end of the story were tears filled with hope and joy that only the Lord can bring to the broken places in our lives!! What a powerful, powerful message Kim Cash Tate shares in her latest novel, Cherished!! I mean God is all through the pages of this story, folks!! HIS love is unconditional, and His blood covers all of our sins! He loves us when we fail Him and gives us every opportunity to run back into His arms and receive His forgiveness!!

The process of being broken to our own willfull sinful choices is not an easy process, but it is SO WORTH it when we repent and come back to the arms of our Savior!! Kelli and her friends and family learn this very truth in a myriad of circumstances in their lives!! It is a great story my friend! If you are going through your own trial, or time of repenting and returning to God, this book will comfort and encourage you in a mighty way!!

Trust GOD alone with your heart! His Love is all you need to restore life and hope where none existed before!
