Before I became a christian I allowed life's difficulties to dominate most of my waking thoughts. As you will see in the first 20 pages, I did not cope well with adverse situations, (lost love, lost job, little money, etc). The remainder of the book shows how Jesus can change lives when it's no longer "all about me", that's when I learn that "I can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength". This is a sort of before and after story in poetry form.
Problems will still come....but God!
I was raised in a small town in Arkansas. My family went to church so I knew about Jesus but didn't have a personal relationship with him until I was in my 30's. I was a rebellious young adult and had to learn many life lessons the hard way. I am a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. I started writing poetry as a teenager and have never stopped. Since I recently retired I can now devote as much time as I want to my love of writing poetry.
