These contemporary psalms and free verse poems speak to and for us as we praise God through dark times and light.

What a joy to see PRAISE! released by Cladach Publishing in time for Easter!

These free verse poems and contemporary psalms began, one by one, as a thought each morning to begin the day in praise of God. To encourage others in the family of God too, the poems were then posted on the Praise Poems blog, where they collected with no thought of a book until, suddenly, there it was!

Now, here it is, I pray, with words and prayers to speak to and for you through dark times and light as you praise God, praise God, praise God.

PRAISE! poems are scheduled for publication this spring by Cladach Publishing.

I began reading the Bible and writing poems as a child and later placed 28 books in all genres with Christian and educational publishers. A year or so ago I felt God wanted me to focus on praise, and these poems resulted.
