To the Glory of His Name! A Book of Poetry Prayer and Praise
by Marian Colton
Written over the course of many years, Marian Colton compiles for the first time a collection of poetry, reflections, and ruminations from her time working as a paraprofessional in the Special Education Department of the Brick Township School District to her life in retirement living in a “fifty-five and over” community. While some of her reflections have changed over time, it is clear that the glory of God has not. While we may all be facing different circumstances and challenges, God loves each and every one of us. He is there for the faithful, to guide them and meet their needs as troubled waters rise. Colton makes this sentiment evident in her simple, easy-to-read poetry, and will inspire any reader to begin a Faith journey of their very own.
