Book Spotlight: Box of Butterflies

7 Feb

The good people at Howard Books sent me several books a few weeks ago — wow! how generous. Unfortunately, this busy book blogger cannot get to all the books that make their way into my home. So, I spotlight a few that I think you’d be interested in. Box of Butterflies by Roma Downey of Touched by An Angel fame is one such book. Check out the blurb and author info and decide if this book is one you may like.

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, scripture, and artwork that she prays will uplift you as they have her. Each grace-filled chapter of this beautiful full-color book covers topics such as courage, strength, 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, 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 to its pages again and again, as life brings new challenges or you find yourself in need of new inspiration.

Roma Downey is an Emmy-nominated actress and producer and has been creating inspirational content for twenty-five years. Born in Northern Ireland, she was classically trained in London. She gained fame for her role as the kindhearted angel Monica on the popular network show, Touched by an Angel. With her husband, Mark Burnett, they produced The Bible series, A.D., The Dovekeepers, and Answered Prayers for television, and feature films Son of God, Woodlawn, Little Boy, and Ben-Hur. Roma is president of LightWorkers Media — a joint venture with MGM. Downey also serves as chief content officer of, a destination website for inspiring and uplifting short form content. Roma is a longtime supporter of Operation Smile and Compassion and received the Sally Award from the Salvation Army for her contribution to entertainment and helping those in need. Roma and her husband live in California with their three amazing children and their three giant Irish Wolfhounds.
