How has God shown you that He cherishes you?
I absolutely love Christian fiction but many titles are starting to tell the same story. I don't want to hear about the pastor cheating nor stories about Christians who aren't really living for God. If you are like me and are looking for great Christian fiction with a new story then you are in for a treat.
I recently received a copy of Kim Cash Tate's new novel entitled Cherished. It was awesome! She grabbed me from the first page and I was hooked. In this book, Kim tells a heart-felt story about forgiveness, true friendship and the importance of surrounding yourself with like-minded Christians. The best part of this book for me was proof of the saying that we hear all the time: "What God has for you is for you." The power of God is felt on every page of this book. I connected with the characters. I even wanted to be friends with many of them! It is so refreshing to read a book about the true struggles that we face as Christians and how to overcome them.
If you are having trouble forgiving someone or yourself for something that you did in the past, then this book will minister to you. If you don't believe that God forgets about your sins when you repent and turn your life over to Him, then pick up this book and let it minister to you. If you don't believe that God's will ALWAYS comes to pass even when you are resistant, then pick up this book and let it minister to your heart.
Cherished was not just a book that I read just for entertainment. It was a book that truly touched me and ministered to my heart. I laughed, I cried and I even saw things in me that I needed to pray about. This novel reminded me that God wants all of His children to know that we are cherished by Him regardless of what we may have done in our past life. He loves us, He knows us and He wants the best for us. He is a redeemer and He is a God of restoration! Cherished will show you the true character of God. I love reading novels that make me feel like I am communicating with God.
Kim, thank you for allowing God to use you in such a mighty way! Your writing is truly a ministry that is touching others. You out did yourself on this one! I can't wait for the next novel.

Cherished Book Description
How can she believe God cherishes her when she can't forgive herself?
Kelli London once dreamed of being a songwriter. As crazy as it seemed, she hoped that God would use the lyrics that came to her while she slept. She dreamed about Brian too, that the love they shared would be a forever kind of love. But choices she'll forever regret upended her hope . . . and turned her dreams to dust. When those dreams come knocking once more, she's forced to deal with the pain of the past.
Heather Anderson's life has spun out of control--first, an affair with a married man, then a one-night stand with the drummer of a popular Christian band that left her devastated. Broken and alone, she cried out to the only One who can save her. And He did. But that's just the beginning, because now she must leave behind the only life she's ever known.
Two women with shame-filled pasts form an unlikely friendship. What does God's forgiveness look like for them? Will they ever believe that He loves them . . . and can still offer them a life where they are cherished?
