I happen to personally know this author so I was excited to finally snag his book and jump into it. I haven’t been disappointed in the least. I’ve read several of these poems to the family around the dinner table and already have a number of pages dog-eared. This is a great little work, rich with encouraging stories of truth, perspective, hope and Christian faith through every season and circumstance of life. I highly recommend you pick it up. John is an every day guy, your ‘average’, if you will, Christian, husband, father and employee who deals with the struggles we all face. He writes candidly about the challenges of life, even with Christ. He doesn’t sugar coat things, but he also doesn’t leave us in despair. He lays out his thoughts and struggles, but always lands on great hope, great faith and great love. He always lands at the great God and Savior: Jesus Christ.
