Cherished by Kim Cash Tate
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?

What is so unusual about this story is how God took the broken pieces of so many lives and molded them together in love. I really enjoyed the story of how these musicians expressed their feelings, longings and personal commitment to God through their worship music.
My only regret is that I can't hear the music that they were talking about, and I really want to see the music videos. Such passion and feelings were expressed by the author, and I was in tears many times.
Cherished is a beautiful and fitting title for this book, and the Readers Guide with discussion questions really made me search my heart. This book is a beautiful reminder of how much we are loved and cherished by our Heavenly Father.
Thank you to the author Kim, for an exceptional book ... this one will truly change lives.
