This is a beautiful and wonderfully written book for any daughte
Through the eyes of her mother, Mary Finlayson, Mary Lou relives the life of her family and shares her own responses to the treasures of the God Boxes her mother kept over the course of many years. She writes with candor and love and shares a powerful lesson of both living and letting go. Immediately I found myself looking at my mother in a different light as well as wondering how I could incorporate a similar life view for my own daughters.
From my own experience i know that using a 'god' box for worries large and small is a powerful tool--that i have not used nearly often enough. What a great reminder of the things that truly matter in a life.
If you haven't already, visit Mary Lou's website under the name of thegodboxproject and view the short film book trailer. The audio and film clips of Mary Finlayson are heartbreakingly poignant. Also interesting to note is that Mary Lou is devoting the profits of The God Box to local cancer and hospice care charities.

Disappointed with the format
I received this as a Mother's Day gift and enjoyed what I was able to read, but the format/layout was such that each page had just a small section of writing in it, pictures were cut off and large bold type from another page would appear over the words on the page I was trying to read, making it impossible to read. I tried to resize the font and layout several times, but it didn't make it any better. I have never had this problem with any other ebook. The story itself, from what I was able to read, was inspirational - a nice idea I wish I would have thought of years ago.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
