Shares personal stories, scriptures, quotations, poems and artwork intended to uplift, inspire, and remind readers of the presence of God.

Downey, who played angel Monica in the beloved series Touched by an Angel and, along with her husband, Mark Burnett, is the producer of such inspirational shows as Women of the Bible and A.D. the Bible Continues, offers readers a minibiography interlaced with her personal insights, pieces of Scripture, and poetry. Born in Northern Ireland, she lost her mother at an early age and her father as a young adult. Butterflies became a symbol to her, and they flutter through this book, both in the text and the watercolor illustrations. Her fans will enjoy stories about her TV shows, especially Touched by an Angel, and about the important relationship she forged with costar Della Reese. God infuses her narrative and seems to be present everywhere she turns. Some readers may wonder how God is so available to her, providing everything from roles to her husband, when others travel a less-amenable road, but her message is that "no matter how dark life feels, He is always there to guide us, comfort us," and it's certainly true that faith and gratitude suffuse her stories.
