This is a very small, hand held book that describes 10 encounters with Jesus that will change everything. All the stories in this book are of Jesus and His love for us. It can be read from cover to cover or each story (a few pages) a day or you can pick up at your leisure to read. The stories are inspirational and could be use as a devotional on a daily basis, depends on what you want to get out of it. It covers many miracles that Jesus performed and how He reacted to his people. Each chapter has a title, a verse and then a few pages of the story. A great read for those that need encouragement, a Sunday School could use each chapter as a lesson, or just read with a friend and discuss. A very little book with so many possibilities and a very attractive cover. This would be a great gift to give at anytime of the year.

More from Annetta
I counted my journals, wondering. A drawer filled with thirty-three journals. The years of words held in those pages cover countless seasons of living and following Jesus. Even the gaps of silence speak volumes in the journey.
This passion for writing, evident in that drawer of journals, has had the dream of a book tucked within it. And, quite by surprise, a book has formed and grown these past years. The Rabbi’s Touch began innocently with the study of Blind Bartimaeus. His miracle took shape in my imagination, taking on sounds, images and emotions. Notes and reflections about his healing found their way in the current journal. Hidden Greek meanings fed my imagination until I was Bartimaeus meeting Jesus. That encounter took on words that needed to be put down on paper as his story. Bartimaeus’ story led to another short story, which led to another. Each story was driven by the desire to enter the lives of those who met Jesus and were healed. Each story was written with the longing to encounter Jesus for myself, as if I had never met Him before. Perhaps I would grow in knowing Him. And I did.
As the stories grew, so did a quiet desire for others to meet Him as I had. Perhaps others could meet Jesus on their dusty road, make eye contact with Him, hear His voice and feel His healing touch? Perhaps a conviction of what He can do will grow, and they, too, could be determined to press in to receive what is His to give? Perhaps they also will cast aside the veil they have been hiding behind and walk free? Perhaps you can meet Him, too? So, here it is, a collection of first-hand stories, ready for you to encounter Jesus.
