Book Blurb for Learning Through Poetry
The Learning Through Poetry book series will focus solely on the Bible and learning some of the most basic and popular stories through the avenue that I hold so dear; poetry. My goal is to make reading the Bible easier for children to follow and understand. My purpose, as a whole, is to enlighten the spirits of children everywhere through the gift of reading and visual learning.
Book Blurb for A,B,C Book of Inspirational Poetry for Everyday Life and Emotions
These poems, or as I would like to call them letters, to you are all very true. Each was derived from an emotion or moment that took place in my life. I believe God took me through these events so I could release my thoughts into a beautiful passage. As you read the letters on these pages, I pray that they resonate with you and bring joy and peace
to your heart.
