I read this book years ago and it has stayed with me--showing the importance of encouraging others and many true stories wkere encouragemnt has made a world of difference in someone's life. This Christian book is filled with wit, warmth and wisdom of Florence Littauer. Good read!
Is your marriage or friendship in trouble? Set aside your books about relationship rescue and marrige building for awhile. Let the message of this book sink into your soul and try what it says. You will see results, and they will last. Once you learn the skills this book teaches, you will be your spouse's friend, the person your friends want to be with, and the parent your child will trust and love for life. It's not a quick-fix miracle, but sometimes you might think it is. I used the principles in this book to reach out and heal the rift between me and my father and also used it to help my family heal from some painful losses. We laugh together now where there used to be cold silence. I'm so glad I found this book.
I enjoyed this book. It reminds us to say kind words to each other. Kind, encouraging words are like silver boxes.
This wasn't what I expected but still was a nice little book. I was expecting a book with a STORY about someone and Silver Boxes, ala Christmasy....instead it was short excerpts of the authors idea of what circumstances happened in her life that she labeled "little silver boxes of God's gift". Again NOT what I expected but still had about 4 out of 12 "silver boxes" I enjoyed.
