Blog Tour: A Friend in the Storm (Review)

Looking for a way to encourage a friend, who might be going through a tough time?

Why not check out Cheryl Ricker’s newest gift book, A Friend In the Storm.

The small, hardback book may have less than 100 pages, but it is full of quotes, scripture and poems designed to provide encouragement to those dealing with difficult times.

What I Thought
This is a great little book. The fabric binding and foil stamping makes it a beautiful gift book. I really enjoyed flipping through the book to see the various quotes and Ricker’s poetry.

I believe this book will not only provide a nice gift, but it’s also a fun “coffee table” book to have, to flip through when you are needing a bit of inspiration.
