My upcoming poetry book, Love Without Borders, Book Three in the Without Borders Inspirational Series, is a collection of inspirational poetry scheduled to be published this month. The cover art is by award winning author, David Sandum, and the foreword was written by my friend, supporter and mentor, Pastor Johnie Butler. It has been a journey to put this book together, as I have a compilation of poetry from different stages of my life. As an added bonus, I have included a very special section of poems by family and friends, some of them first time authors with this publication. May this poetry book touch, bless, encourage, and inspire you in many ways.

Working Book Cover for study guide
New book cover for devotional
God recently put in my head to change the cover to the devotional I wrote, Faith Without Borders. The change was to make the book cover softer and more appealing. I am pleased, and I believe God is too, with the result. Part of the proceeds of the sale of the devotional benefit my local church. My plan is to do a study guide for the devotional titled, Walk In Faith, to be published in November, 2017.
The study guide will go into each chapter more, and will have questions to prompt reflective thought about the topic of the chapter. I will have new bible verses and quotes for inspiration and encouragement. My plan is to hold a four to six week study at home once the guide is published. I have participated in the Women's Ministry at my local church as a co-facilitator for a few bible studies, and I find that I enjoy the fellowship and sharing of God's word.
Below are some bible verses and inspiring quotes that will be in the study guide:
"...would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart." - Psalm 44:21
"If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ." --1 Peter 4:11
Enlightenment brings reflection, and ignorance brings sorrow.
God defines me, not man or society. I am confident because I am wonderfully made by God.
"In your anger do not sin, when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent." - Psalm 4:4
Most importantly, if you are facing strife and are full of stress: "Be still and know that God is God."
God, I bow before you in humble repentance for the idols that I allowed to replace you in my heart.
"I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity." - Chronicles 29:17
I look forward to sharing more of the study guide with you throughout the upcoming months. I pray for God's guidance in writing it and hope it brings Him all the glory. It is not about me or what I write, but all about His word and unconditional love.
