About the Book

Expressions of the Heart contains the author’s personal observations on human relationships, the wonders of God’s creations, and her personal journey as a follower of Jesus Christ. It also contains a special section of Christmas poems written over the years.

Inspirational poems like “My Lord” and “His Light Divine” uplift and motivate, but there are also poems like “Seek Your Face and Pray” and “Keep My Place in Line” that present challenges that befall a Christian in the daily struggle to keep faith. There are poignant homages to caregivers, like “A Mother’s Task Is Never Done” and poems that capture the spirit of parenting, like “Goals” and “The Careful Gardener.” Poems like “Seasonal Gossip” spark sensory memories that enable a reader to almost smell and taste the change in season. This collection will encourage you to examine your relationships with friends and family, have a closer walk with God, or simply notice the world around you.
