Heaven's Touch Book and CD- A Tribute to Women Gift Set Book with artwork by Greg Olsen, Music CD by Marshall McDonald. Published by Covenant Communications.

As you think about a gift for Mother's Day this year for someone special in your life, consider this book and CD gift set entitled "Heaven's Touch, A Tribute to Women". The book features the art of Greg Olsen. Each page has a different painting. His artwork is known for the amount of color and light in each piece. These are truly stunning to look at. Along with each painting is a quote from someone notable in the church about women or motherhood. It is certainly an uplifting book.

The CD included with the book features the piano music of Marshall McDonald. I have several of his CDs now and I am always very pleased with his soothing music. His arrangements include "As Sisters in Zion", "Each Life that Touches Ours for Good", "Where Can I Turn For Peace?", "I Am A Child of God", and several other original compositions. My favorite is the very first track "As Sisters In Zion". It is an amazing arrangement of the hymn we women know so well. The book and CD are sold separately as well, but I'm glad they put them together in a set because I think they really complement each other nicely.
