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.

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.

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.

The most inspiring book I’ve read since Della Reese’s Angels Song The Way!

As a boy, I watched Touched By Angel, faithfully. I became spiritually connected to the characters, Monica & Tess, and of course, the wonderful people portraying them, Roma Downey & Della Reese. My love for Della has carried such a heavy weight throughout my life. However, my love for Monica translated into my love for Roma, as she WAS Monica. An angel. A lot of times, I felt displaced from other children my age, and later, from people, altogether. I knew I was different. In a good way. In a God way. But reading Della’s memoirs, made clear why I felt different. I was different. Then, reading Roma’s book, I’m aware of the responsibility that I have, which is sharing this message to the world. To my generation. This book is life-changing! It did for me, exactly what Roma intended it to do... gave me the strength to push myself out of my cocoon. 🦋

Sincere words of encouragement!

Enjoyed this book so much. I love Roma and especially her being the narrator. It has so much encouragement in the pages and I hope to incorporate some of her traditions into my own life and try to learn how to quiet my mind and meditate and pray more. Thank you so much for writing this book and thank you God for using Roma to touch so many lives.

The Best

This is one of the best books I have bought and listened to in a long time well maybe ever. When I purchased this book I went back and forth about which one to buy and I am so glad I got the audio book read by Ms Roma herself because hearing Her triumph and tragedies in her own voice made this so very priceless. I now plan on going for a copy to hold and actually see and to be able to turn back to hear her words of wisdom and love. thank you Mrs Downey♥️😇
