At the conclusion of reading the first chapter I thought, this teaching will make a difference in my life – and so it has. Detailed explanations on the extraction of aromas and the defining notes of the corresponding spiritual essences enhanced understanding related Bible characters. Essential Oils are an integral part of my life, and the scriptural background and illustrations to the oils and perfumes were meaningful and insightful. Treatment of Munchausen was also interesting and added to the teaching. A great reminder was how the perfume is really for those it attracts, and what a blessing and responsibility we have, for the privilege of being chosen as a “perfumed letter.”
Yes, there are numerous grammatical errors that temporarily distract, but the message is so personal, unique, and intriguing that did not stop me from finishing Perfumed Letters. The obvious target audience (slang and references to the “hood” that I had to read several times to get), and some street language and sexual references limits a broad recommendation, even though every woman could benefit from the central teaching.
That said, both material and presentation fit with Robin’s intended audience – those whose life experiences and emotional, and spiritual needs relate to the personal struggles and triumphs woven throughout the teaching. There are many young women whom I believe will be given hope of a future and courage to turn from the world through Robin’s no-nonsense, tell it like it is (or was) testimony that runs throughout the book.
I predict that there will be many more lives, in addition to mine, that will be enlarged with God’s call on their lives through Perfumed Letters by Robin T. Smith.
