Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Sapphires and Other Precious Jewels, Terri McFaddin shows that she is one of the most gifted communicators of our time. She combines her own life experiences and understanding of women with her profound knowledge of the Bible to inspire each of us to reach our divinely designed potential. Through the use of wonderful stories, in-depth studies of fascinating women of the Bible, and comparisons of feminine qualities to precious stones, this book speaks to the reader on many different levels.

-Marilyn McCoo, entertainer

An inspirational goldmine for the many women of color who struggle to know and accept their true worth in the eyes of God. Terri McFaddin sensitively challenges African-American women to embrace biblical truths that will both elevate and empower them. Imaginative and profoundly compassionate, Sapphires is a treasure.

-Ronn Elmore, Psy.D, author of How to Love a Black Man

Terri McFaddin is one of the best-kept secrets in the world of ministry today. Her profound understanding of the word of God and her ability to creatively bring its principles to life as she speaks profound truths into the hearts of women is life-changing. Uncovering old mindsets of corrupted self-esteem to reveal the jewels we are within, Sapphires and Other Precious Jewels will cause those who read it to finally be loosed to celebrate the handiwork of God in their lives and embolden them to embrace their purpose with new determination.

-Michelle McKinney Hammond, author of In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man

Terri McFaddin takes a new and fresh approach to celebrating the uniqueness of Black women. This book is a jewel that should be read several times, then recommended to others with great enthusiasm

-Alaina Reed Hall, film and television actress

Exquisite is the first word that comes. Sapphires and Other Precious Jewels magnificently reminds us of truths that been relegated (by history and society) to the dark, back rows of our spirits-truths that reveal our divinely ordained place in the universe.

-Maria Dowd, founder and executive producer of African American Women on Tour
