From My Heart to Yours...

Recently I was flying home from speaking at a weekend women’s retreat. I leaned back in my seat, exhausted, and began to reflect on the last few days spent with such wonderful women. We laughed, we cried, we ate too much and slept too little. I felt privileged that so many of the ladies felt safe enough to share with me the painful parts of their lives that few had seen.

As I sat there staring out at the clouds below and the heavens above, I wanted desperately to see a miracle in the lives of my new friends. I couldn’t help but wonder if anything I said would give Evelyn the encouragement she needed to start over again, help heal Joyce’s heart from her past, give Kim the ability to forgive those who hurt her, or provide Jan the strength to get through her trials. Life can be so hard to handle. Could one weekend of truth, transparency,
and teaching give them what they needed to complete God’s call on their lives?

I began to reflect on my own life and the years I wasted not knowing God’s plan, His purpose, and the power that was mine for the asking. I regret the poor choices I made that led me down a road of selfdestruction to a life filled with drugs, depression, and eating disorders. In the midst of my misery, I was convinced that all I needed was to lose weight and be pretty and popular. Even after I overcame my addictions and lost weight, I found myself driven by money and success and desperately needing the approval of others. Even achieving a successful career and winning beauty crowns could not complete me.

In the midst of my emptiness and pain, a missionary couple shared with me about the great, eternal crown offered to me by God. I knew I had finally found the answer when I accepted His gift of eternal life, yet it still took me years to truly discover freedom from my past and the call He had on my life. Today, I am a new creation and I have left the past where it belongs…at the cross.

The airplane brought me safely home that weekend, but my heart ached for the countless women who would go home that night feeling anything but safe—or at home. With these thoughts tugging at my heart and after reviewing my own life, I realized we can live beyond our pain and our past, our fears and failures, and become…His princesses.

I know how hard it is for us to look at our lives and think of ourselves as royalty. But the truth is, God is our King and we are chosen by Him (1 Peter 2:9). Unfortunately, many of us have traded the truth of who God says we are for a tarnished version of ourselves, fashioned by the approval of others and adorned with our own insecurities.

I searched the Scriptures over the next few months and wrote what I thought God might say personally to us if we would really hear Him with our heart, take Him at His Word, and have enough faith to believe what He says.

I pray as your soul soaks in these “love letters” that you will never again doubt who you are, why you are here, and how much you are loved.

Love,
Sheri Rose

This book amazed me, so many times we as Christians think that if we do something wrong, God will pull out the rod and beat us, And then we live in the guilt of what we have assumed to be Gods ways. This book gives you a clear understanding of what God really feels about us even when we have not been our very best he is still there showing his love and affection...I rate this book the highest, and give it two thumbs up!!! Thanks Sherri R. Shearperd.

I thoroughly enjoy the Book by Sheri Sheppard Princess Letters from your King. It was by far the most powerfully inspirational book I have ever read. It was fulled with wonderful healing truths and words of inspiration for the edification of christian women everywhere. It is suitable for women of all ages walks of life and all ethnicities. The author was able to give such wonder insights and scriptures from the bible and it was such a joy to read. I also recommend Prayers to my King and My Prince Will Come.

This beautifully written and inspiring book is a MUST-to-have! The author takes the passages from the Holy Scripture to write them into beautiful LOVE LETTERS from our Heavenly God the Father. This is a book not just for young girls, it is a wonderful gift for all women to know that we are truly loved by our Creator and our God! I place this little book at my bedside. When I go to bed at night, I pick up this little book and allow God to use my fingers to randomly choose a page to read -- that page becomes the special love message for that moment. I read it slowly and meditate on those inspired words and allow God to embrace me and whisper my name in love in the silence of my heart.

I've given this book to many people as a gift. It's easy reading, and inspiring. It's like having God setting His hand gently on your shoulder, looking into your eyes in a loving way, and telling you "I know life gets hard sometimes, but I'm right here with you. Don't ever forget that. I've created you for a purpose. I love you, and none of this is meant to harm you, but to strengthen you" It's great to read when you're having a bad day, for encouragement. It's also great to read on a good day, to remember Who deserves the glory for all of the good that comes out of that day.

This book is the last thing I read before going to sleep every night. I tell people I'm giving God the opportunity to say goodnight to me. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to hear how much she is valued and loved.

This little book is not just for little girls, but then again maybe no matter how old we become we are still little girls at heart. Each letter will touch your heart, and remind you that you are His special Princess.

My friend gave me this book when I was new in being saved and dealing with depression. It is such a comforting book. I bought some to give for gifts for my Bible Study as I thought it would be uplifting to the other women.

This gem of a book is one that contains much needed information that allows us as women to see how our good Lord views us. The author did an amazing job of interpreting bible passages and writing letters as if God was speaking directly to us. This is an essential book for both those seeking God and those who have already found the Lord. Through times of heartache the words contained in this book touch our heart and give us peace and strength. I feel this book is a must because as women we definitely need reassurance and we always want to feel as princesses and the words this book contains do just that; they make us realize just how important and special we are. Many of us have very difficult lives that break us down and make us feel (for lack of a better word) little and the letters written here hit every one of our weak spots and fortify us so that we can go forth and triumph. F e e d your spirit with Love, Hope and Faith. <3 O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask your aid.

I had no idea how beautiful this book would be, until it came in the mail. It was above and beyond my expectations. This is not a book you can just sit down and read. It must be read slowly, so you are able to absorb the truths tucked away on each page. When you open the book it starts with "You did not choose Me but I chose you." John 15:16 NLT. That verse prefaces a letter from Sheri Rose to the reader. She says, "I began to reflect on my own life and the years I wasted not knowing God's plan, His purpose, and the power that was mine for the asking. (page 7)" She goes on to say, "I know how hard it is for us to look at our lives and think of ourselves as royalty. But the truth is, God is our King and we are chosen by Him (I Peter 2:9). Unfortunately, many of us have traded the truth of who God says we are for a tarnished version of ourselves, fashioned by the approval of others and adorned with our own insecurities. (page 9)" Then you proceed through many, many thought provoking, comforting, encouraging letters from "your King". Sheri says she searched Scripture and wrote what she "thought God might say personally to us if we would really hear Him with our heart, take Him at His Word, and have enough faith to believe what He says. (page 9)" Each page is illustrated beautifully with photographs of flowers. This is a perfect book to give as a gift to young women in your life who might be graduating, or just because. It is not limited to just "younger" women though, it applies to all women who need to have a new thought presented to them, or just be reminded. We are princesses, daughters of the King. He has chosen us. *I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for this review.*

Exceeded my expectations, Awesome book This book is an unbelievable, life-changing experience. It helped me feel the true love and presence of God. Every girl who feels lost or lonely should read this and feel the true love and acceptance they are looking for. This beautiful four-color book opens the eyes of women to see themselves the way God sees them. Many don't even know that they are daughters of the King - chosen to be His Princess. Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, they trade in their fairy-tale dreams of being cherished for a tarnished identity fashioned by their own insecurities and the mixed-up messages of the media. Now, these tenderly adoring letters written from God's perspective demonstrate that every woman is beautiful just the way she is. Walking in confidence toward her God-given purpose, every woman can bless others - even future generations. This book is VERY well written and brings me to tears with the way it describes our Lords love for us. It's also a great book for a father to sit down and read to his daughter every evening before bed. This books helps women to know that they are a Princess in God's eyes and it also allows them to see themselves the way God sees them. The letters are written so it is read as the letters are really personal to you. It is encouraging; easy to read (one a day meditations or as many as you hunger for). It is small so it can be taken about anywhere. The good people at Multnomah's Blogging for Books gave me a free copy of His Princess in exchange for an honest review.

The folks at Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group gave me the opportunity to review a devotional entitled "His Princess, Love Letters from Your King." This hardcover book is a collection of devotionals that can be read in any order. The devotionals hit a variety of topics, but ultimately the devotional affirms the reader that God made us for a purpose, that we are loved and we are his. I love the detail and pictures in this devotional. It is very beautiful and would be a great gift! This devotional reaches the heart of a woman! I Highly recommend. I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

His Princess is an extraordinary book and designed lovely. The book is uplifting and very inspirational. It is the most wonderful Love letters ever written so elegantly. The author used by the Great King, poured out His soul of love in this book. In reading this book, I was truly blessed, it touched my heart and I will share with others of this precious gem. I enjoyed the beauty of the colors, the design, and the declaration of me being His Princess. I felt such unspeakable joy and grateful of the personal relationship I have with the King. This book reaches to the soul of a woman and touches the very essence of who she is to Him. He chose us and I am glad. Thank you Sheri for this magnificent book. “I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”.

This book is the best devotional/tool for getting to know the God Who made you and loves you that I have ever seen. It literally changed my life. I got this book in a gift bag at a church program, and I threw it in a drawer as soon as I got home, thinking "Oh, another devotional." A year later, I was wondering why I felt so empty and lonely. I was cleaning one day and I opened that drawer and decided to just read this book before I threw it out or gave it away. I opened the book at random, and landed on the page entitled "You're Never Alone." It was exactly what I needed to hear, and it made me cry. All the love and fulfillment I had been looking for for so long was right here. This book guided me in prayer then as it does today, and today I am so much happier for it. It showed me in ways I could understand how God loves me as His daughter and His princess, and it taught me how to live as He wants me to and to do it for the right reason: because He loves me. It taught me to pray, to bring every single thing in my life to God, and to live as the princess that I am. I wish that everyone would read this small but powerful book that has worked wonders in my life, and feel the love and acceptance that so many are looking for in all the wrong places, the love and acceptance that comes from God alone.

I highly recommend "His Princess" as a personal book to inspire women, whether you are single, married, widowed, young or old, to a deeper understanding of God's love for us. This is not a book for the casual Christian, but one who truly desires to draw closer to the heart of the Father and know Him more intimately. The book is compiled of "love letters" from the King (who is Almighty God). When you are feeling unloved, distant in your relationship with God, or truly just want to build a deeper relationship with the Lord, this book is for you! It also makes a wonderful gift idea, great for a bedside table or to carry in your purse when you are traveling. I challenge anyone who is dry in their relationship with God to take the opportunity to read this book and meditate on the words of love and acceptance from the King of Kings. You will be blessed and hopefully changed from the inside out.

As a christian, I find that it is very difficult to follow my God in a materialistic world. It is difficult to maintain that I am a child of God when the world pulls towards things that don't last. I find His Princess a very inspiring and comforting book. It reminds me that I have a Heavenly Father that looks after me no matter what. If you are feeling that God has left you, read His Princess, it really reminds you that you are truly loved and brings to heart God's love for His Children.
