About the Book

Walk of Faith is about living, growing, and walking in the light. Every poem invites the reader to laugh, cry, sing, and pray with the poet while taking a spiritual journey. Each poem speaks, rather than preaching, to the readers about the universal experiences of all who walk daily in their faith. Even the poem titled “Gentle Sermon” is spiritually and realistically insightful, rather than preachy.

Walk of Faith is a collection of inspirational poems covering more than twenty years that Jo Evans Lynn has served as the unofficial poet laureate of her church. The poems inspire and celebrate all occasions and people from every social realm, joyfully flowing from childhood to adulthood, as a girl becomes a woman of faith in a Pentecostal church. The overwhelming message of the collection of poems is that “a spiritual walk with God is a journey of hope, faith, and joy.” In every poem, whether serious or humorous, Jo Evans Lynn affirms that the goodness of God is an ever-present force in our lives and that there is nothing too hard for God.
