A Poetry Journal of Liberating Thought : Blessings Through Afflictions
Author: Monique Blanding
This book is not merely filled with poetic lines of pleasant words for thought; that may be found in the leaves of famed fables; that are written to reach the mind of children. But, instead, this book is considered a tool. It is formatted as a poetry journal, intended to bring about personal and spiritual transformation for you, the reader, family, friends and community. Though written primarily for women and young adults; I believe men may personally benefit from this book as well; with any special relationship with women; in that he may use it, to seize the opportunity to speak to the heart and soul of the woman, who is seeking God's plan for righteous living. This book is also filled with poems that may alter or benefit us, and how we view the world through its' every changing lens. Finally, this book is for the reader who may find him or herself at cross-roads and ultimately a breakthrough. At those times in my life, I find this scripture to be very impactful in helping me to navigate the ebb and flow of life: Ephesians 4:22-24 KJV: 22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
