  • People of God – One and All Saints and Sinners

    People of God – One and All Saints and Sinners

    Her poetry is inspired by the Holy Spirit, many times with an instructional focus. She received and discovered this gift to write poetry in her latter years of teaching. In her newly revised book People of God – One and All: Saints and Sinners, different aspects of being a saint and a sinner are explored. Questions are asked, thoughts are provoked, and concepts are delved into in comprehending the reality of being both a saint and a sinner. In People of God-One and All: Come and Be…, Part 1 she explores the concepts of grace, relationships, and sacred struggles. In Part 2 she explores this through the wonder of God, the production of fruits evolving through faith, and how to be bold in faith. Both books explore and ponder upon the ideas of faith, relationships with God and each other, and what is expected in carrying out one’s faith. In all the books, scripture passages for further study and references are provided with most of the poems to further question and reflect on one’s faith and how to mature oneself in the faith realm and share it with others.
    In retirement, she quilts with many being sewn for philanthropy projects locally and around the world. Additionally, she reads, does genealogy, and actively participates in church activities.

    Picture Poems Volume 1

    Synergy of Image and Verse.

    A photograph is worth a thousand words. Poetry paints word pictures using poetic imagery. On their own, they each are exquisite. Combined they become something else – a powerful composition that blends the best of both.

    That is what happens in this book. The author is inspired by the image, and from it, poetry flows to dance and enhance the whole upon the page. Images from the eye of a photographer that translate to the mind of the poet. The wonder here is that both are the same. The photographer is the poet.

    Here is an excerpt from poem #1, Chipmunk, which goes with the picture on the cover.

    Those chubby cheeks that hold the seed,
    A fuzzy face soon raids the stash.
    He pilfers grain the birdies need,
    This little guy’s manners, so brash.

    Praises in the Storm: A Collection of Poems (Improved Edition)

    From the poems that we have heard Mihaela read, she shows a sensitive heart, a keen mind, and a compassionate spirit. We feel blessed to be able to read and hear her read her beautiful poems. Her deep love for the Lord and the Word of God shows through in every word.

    ~Dr. Bob and Cheryl Moeller – “For Better, for worse, for keeps Ministries”

    Praises in the Storm … is an oasis for the soul to regain its strength
    through the words of each poem of profound and refreshing Biblical truth.
    ~Georgetta Livingstone, Ph.D.

    Razor Bumps and Stretch Marks: An Anthology

    Razor Bumps and Stretch Marks is a rite of passage. It reflects the hazards and romance of growing up.

    It also represents my journey over the past two decades or so, with a healthy dose of what I’ve heard and observed from those around me, fellow travelers who didn’t always know I was watching.

    I resisted the impulse to arrange the poems thematically, or in chronological order, a nod to life’s often non-linear character. Instead, they are arranged alphabetically. That way, whenever you’d like to return to one favorite or the other, you’ll know where to find it.

    Look forward to hearing which verse helped make your load a little lighter.
