On Aug 17th 2016 when I received the news that my 21-year-old son had committed suicide I knew that something drastic in my life was about to change forever, for the better or worse I wasn't quite sure. God has transformed my life, I now understand the purpose of forgiveness. I am now convinced trying to find peace and satisfaction in a broken world without Jesus can't be done. Without minimizing the struggles or sadness we may experience Jesus counters them with his promise of peace, joy and ultimate victory. Great peace is available in Christ more than enough to help us navigate whatever life throws at us. I was inspired to write these poems with the expectation to help with mission work while glorifying God. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed writing them. I would like to thank everyone in advance for your support.
