Poems, Read and Relax
by Mother Johnson
Mother Johnson uses this unique collection of poetry to explore faith, family, and the beauty of everyday life. Her reflections and observations of relationships repeatedly challenge us to draw closer to God in faith. Affirming her belief in prayer as the path to faith, wisdom, love, hope, and patience in such poems as Remember, Mother Johnson directs attention to the spiritual aspects of family, home, and daily life. She also draws on nature for inspirations, as can be seen in the imagery of Timely.
Poems, Read and Relax employs the beauty of poetic language to reflect on the possibilities for peace and love on the journey toward our heavenly home.
