New book releasing soon: Beautiful: Deep, Lavish Devotions about God and Beauty
Added: (Tue Apr 10 2018)
Pressbox (Press Release) -
Beautiful by Elissa Macpherson is composed of twenty-eight stand-alone devotions designed to draw the reader into an intense, lavish intimacy with the heavenly Father. The book was birthed out of an experience Elissa had while worshipping God. Elissa describes her experience, "My eyes were shut but I could see an iridescent white mist. The perfect stillness was broken by a falling flowers until an avalanche of yellow and pink flowers were raining around me. From the white mist, Jesus emerged riding a white horse. He spoke to me with his eyes: 'I am beautiful; delight in this beauty.' All the while glistening yellow and pink flowers rained from the white sky of eternity.
Through the devotions in Beautiful, Elissa encourages the reader to see the beauty of Jesus all around them; in flowers, candles, stars, perfume, and silk. These feminine delights are not frivolous, but lead us to deep truths and transformation.
International speaker, TV host, and author Helen Burns states, "This book is an invitation to experience the wonder of God's immense love and infinite beauty through the eyes and heart of someone who has leaned deeply into the love of her Saviour. On every page I discovered afresh such magnificent expressions of what was in God's heart and mind toward us when He created us each so uniquely and perfectly. I am confident that you will enjoy it thoroughly as I have."
