The basis of the book is that we all keep "treasures" that tell the story of where we've been and who we are. The author lists certain treasures that God would have, based on the Bible, that would tell the story of Him and His people. She writes about a fig leaf (from Adam and Eve) and an olive branch (from Noah and the flood). The author interweaves her story with the stories of the Bible, showing that God's character and attributes apply to us and our lives as well.
I liked hearing some of the author's personal stories and lessons she's learned, but I didn't really get much out of what I read in this book. Most of what I read wasn't new to me or applicable, so it became boring for me to read and I stopped. I didn't think it was a bad book and it would probably make a nice gift for a woman you know.
On that note... I'm going to give away my copy of Treasured (which is only half used :) to one of my readers. To enter the giveaway you can do any of the following, leaving a separate comment for each:
