Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Be the Sunshine is a wonderful book of encouragement. I so enjoyed getting to stop and really think about what it means to reflect God's light as I live out my life every day. Angela Thomas always makes me laugh and think?and then laugh again. She uniquely shares Scripture and then drives the point home through stories. This little book will make a great gift for anyone who needs a little sunshine in their day."

"Be the Sunshine is exactly what you'd expect from author, Angela Thomas. It is a bright and cheerful look at mothering and encouraging children to make a difference in the world. Once again, Angela Thomas uses her everyday experiences to teach life-lessons to not only her children but to her readers as well. I plan to share this book with my daughter and I know it will encourage her to be the sunshine to those around her."

Reviewed by Kristie Ingerto for Readers' Favorite &ldquo;Be the Sunshine: Share the Light and Spread the Joy,&rdquo; written by Angela Thomas and illustrated by Christine Adolph, is the perfect gift book for any woman who may need a little bit of encouragement in her life. This book is divided into nine chapters or sections. Each section begins with a quote and then it contains a story, either Angela&rsquo;s own story or another that she shares with the reader and verses from the Holy Bible. Angela shares how the phrase &ldquo;Go be the sunshine&rdquo; became their family motto. This book will encourage you to make this your motto and to live with God being a part of your life, really asking for His forgiveness and accepting Him into your heart and live and then really living your life while being that sunshine that shares God&rsquo;s love throughout daily living and interactions with others. This is a beautiful book; every single page is unique and lovely! The artwork is both stunning and soothing and the layout of each page is well-done and appealing to the eye. This book is a quick read, but it is a book that you will want to take your time reading so that each page can be savored, both the words and the artwork. This is a book that will be read and looked at over and over again in a moment of feeling down and needing encouragement or in moments of needing reminders of being the sunshine. This book is an excellent choice as a gift for each and every woman.
