In her best book yet, Maltby writes words of hope and healing for people who feel discouraged, forgotten and invisible. In a society where we carefully construct and manage Facebook images, where we boast hundreds of acquaintances and few friends, where text messages substitute for real relationships--many are acquainted with feeling invisible. The message that God sees you, knows you, loves you and forgives you is life-giving. Tammy's practical and down to earth approach strips away pretence and helps you see God's intimate care and concern in practical ways. You'll want a copy for yourself--and another for a friend who needs some encouragement.

This book was such an encouragement to me. Sometimes, when we're down and out because of health reasons or other disappointments in life, we can feel as though the Lord just doesn't see us or care. This is so untrue, and we know it is, but this book just really re-affirmed that the Lord not only sees us, but is there for us.
Tammy uses Scripture, personal stories (which you all know I love!) and Biblical promises to show how much the Lord loves us and is there for us whether we realize it or not. I especially loved her lists she used throughout the book. For instance, there is the list "the God who sees you...wants you to know Him", "you're worth it!", "when we can't see God", "accept the discipline of restoration", and the one that really spoke to me, "accept the gifts that trouble can bring". I really like that she had these sections with the lists because they are easy to refer to and when we need encouragement, how great to be able to open the book and go right to these lists!
There is also an 8-week Bible study in the back of the book that is great! The questions are really great in the study because they help us to realize how much the Lord works in our life and also helps us to see our views of God. For me, it helped me to really see how the Lord has worked in my life over and over and how He really saw me, even when I wasn't sure if He did at the time.
I highly recommend this book - especially if you're going through any difficulties in your life. This book will reassure you of God's love and that He really does see you!!
