The poetic verses in this book express some of my beliefs on how faith in God can turn things around when dealing with life's ups and downs. I have shared these verses with many in the course of my duties as a spiritual counselor. I use many of them on a daily basis to remind people about the power of God and his word. Although they are original verses, they are spiritually inclined, inspired by the Bible. They are designed to provide courage and strength as we encounter life's trial and tribulations. This book is the result of the encouragement and inspiration he has received to publish his works. Elder Larry D.
