About the Book

Where is God? How is the Bible reflected in my life? To help answer these questions, Dandelion Tea in a Weedy World uses mirror poetry, a new kind of writing in which biblical scripture is mirrored with life’s adventures to lead us into a deeper awareness of God’s ever-present love. Combined with seventy-six calming ink washes, reflection questions for individual devotion, and motivating group discussions, plus guidance for writing your own faith-inspiring mirror poems, this collection helps guide people of all ages into a deeper, more personal relationship with the Bible and God’s endless love.
