A Friend in the Storm Kindle Giveaway

A Friend in the Storm
A Friend in the Storm 
Author Cheryl Ricker
(From Zondervan) This ninety-six page book combines heartfelt poetry with powerful quotes and Scripture verses to speak to the heart and soul of anyone going through difficult times. The beautiful fabric binding with foil stamping makes this the perfect gift for anyone seeking comfort.Description: 
Author Cheryl Ricker reaches into the depths of human suffering from the perspective of Christ speaking to the reader in soothing poetic words.
 
This elegant gift book will reach the heart and soul of anyone facing difficult circumstances, leading them through their suffering into the arms of a faithful loving God.
 
Each two-page spread includes a poem, as well as reflections written by Christian leaders, along with healing Scripture verses.
 
An elegant foil-stamped fabric binding makes this the perfect gift.

My Take on the Book:  What a beautiful book! This book is a present and a gift card in itself. Sometimes we want to give something or say something to someone in need but can't find the words on our own.  This book would be perfect for a best friend and even for someone you don't know really well. 
I love the flow of the book.  Keywords in the book, like "No" ", "Higher", "Insight", "Hold on" and "Freedom" include a beautiful poem related to that keyword.  Then the next page is a inspirational quote and scripture verse to continue the flow into the next keyword.  I'm sure that I'm not doing the book justice but it is filled with just the right words and scripture to get your mind off of your troubles and to put your focus on Christ. 
I'm thrilled to have a copy of this book.  I plan on using it to help give me the words to say when talking to a friend in need.
