Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio Shares a Treasure Far Better than Jewels
Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio has lived most of her life under the spotlight. The Philippine public has seen her grow up on the small and big screen as an actress. Then, we saw how her life turned around and was transformed by the love of Christ. And we continue to share in her joy as she became a wife and mother. Now, Rica has come to another milestone in her life as she launches her first book, Better than Jewels, a weekly devotional published by OMF Literature.
In Better than Jewels, Rica shares her reflections and insights on God’s Word as it applies to the everyday life. She covers a range of topics close to her heart — the joys and trials of motherhood, generosity and gratitude, love and sacrifice, friendship, and the hard lessons from her own past.
Each month has a theme, divided into weekly entries with application questions and a blank page for you to write down your own thoughts. The themes include:
How to love, which talks about the love that God showed us and called us to do the same to others.
Jesus and… explores the different friendships and relationships Jesus had when He walked on this earth as a man.
Devoted is all about how followers of Christ can look at our country’s leaders and government.
Wind Beneath Mom’s Wings is a whole chapter dedicated to motherhood — about Rica’s own experience when she became a mother, as well as the different mothers in the Bible.
For the chapter Know the Father, Rica invited her husband, Joseph, to write and share his reflections on the Holy Father, and earthly fatherhood.
In The Purpose of Our Past, Rica focuses on the story of the bleeding woman who touched the hem of Jesus’ robe and was healed, and how it relates to her own story.
Why the Word is all about the Bible, how it has the power to change everybody’s lives.
“God knows that no diamond, not even the best and biggest kind, can equal the value of grace I have received from His Word through the realities of life,” Rica writes in her introduction. “Truly, His wisdom is more precious than jewels, far better than all of my earthly riches combined.”
May the readers of this book find the same treasure that actress, wife, mother, and now book author, Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio has found in God’s Word.
Better than Jewels by Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio is available for P425, in all OMF Literature and Passages bookshops nationwide, PCBS, National Bookstore branches, and online at www.passagesbooks.com.
