Publisher's Summary

Roma Downey - best known as the beloved angel on the TV show Touched by an Angel - has created a beautiful book filled with encouragement and hope, assuring us of God's comforting presence in our lives. 

Ever since she was a little girl, Roma has seen butterflies as a reminder of God's presence. They have appeared to her in moments when she needed encouragement and reminded her she is not alone. In this deeply personal book, Roma shares stories from her life, alongside quotes, poems, and Scripture that she prays will uplift you as they have her. Each grace-filled chapter of this beautiful book covers topics such as courage, loss, gratitude, love, and kindness. 

Reminiscent of the message of her popular television series, Touched by an Angel, this book's central theme is that there is a God and he loves you and that even in your most difficult moments, he is by your side. That though you may feel alone, you are never truly alone. The subtle butterfly theme reminds us that the wonder of God's love and kindness is sometimes reflected in the gentle whispers of his creation and that we all have the power to transform from simple caterpillars into exquisite butterflies. 

Written in a way that encourages you to "dip in and out" of its flowing content, this inspiring book invites you to return again and again as life brings new challenges or you find yourself in need of new inspiration.

Touched by God!

I bought the book in audio but loved the message spoken to me that I went out and bought the hardcover. I purchased two so I can give one as a gift. Roma's narrative was so touching, funny, heart-rending, and peaceful. I truly loved this book and plan to read and listen again. I am a Christian and do read my Bible every day, attend church, and I love how God spoke to me through this book. Thank Roma.

Exceptional in her own voice!!!

I bought the book, but was having trouble finding time to read it--so bought the Audible version too. The book is wonderful, and in Roma's own voice is so much more wonderful. I recommend this for everyone!

Beautiful and Uplifting

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Roma shared her losses, challenges, joys and blessings. I especially liked how she talked about how she handled the losses of her parents and found strength to get through hard times. I am coping with the recent loss of my beloved mother, and I found Roma's words very encouraging, strengthening, and uplifting. This book has been a tremendous blessing to me in my time of grief.

A definite must read!

Not only is Roma Downey’s story heartfelt and full of emotional & spiritual life lessons, but to hear her tell it in her voice and tone, made this book even more powerful to men I feel like I have a friend in Roma Downey after spending a few hours learning more about her heart and life.

Lessons from God, in a Life Story

I have been thinking about getting this book for a while, and it didn’t let me down. I was moved and uplifted, as a viewer of Touched By An Angel I wanted to read this to see the story being the angel. I have to admit it was so beautiful, even in the worst situations Roma can see the light of God shining through.

I love this, and thank you for sharing Gods love throughout the ages

A great story

So impressed I was with her telling her beautiful stories and inspirational facts that has strengthened her to whom she is today. A great listen for anyone who needs inspiration. Roma has been to he!l and back and still very grounded because of the traumas that she has experienced.
