About the Author
I’m passionate about relationships with people and fascinated with using the written and spoken word to communicate. Some of my best days are when I spend my mornings infusing some sort of fine tea, and writing. My afternoons may be spent sharing a meal with friends and intently listening, and relating with other's sorrows and joys. For me, everything is material for learning how to live well: family, friends, kayaking, camping, music, surfing and good books. My desire is to engage people with words that shimmer and to ignite in them the desire to be fully what God has created them to be. I am a teaching pastor at St. Andrew United Methodist Church in Highlands Ranch, CO and would love getting to know you personally. You can connect with me at www.dalefredrickson.com.

This is not just a collection of poems - it is an invitation to journey through the orientation, disorientation, and new orientation of serious faith. And on that journey we have a guide who lives in the tension between constant amazement at the beauty of God's work and the reality of human suffering. Dale does not try to cover up the pain in our lives; he acknowledges that "Answers Don't Erase this." But then he turns around and proclaims the "Peace Promising God" - The God that comes in the midst of fear, grief, and hopelessness.
This is not a book to help people feel better. It is a book to offer true healing - the kind that only comes through the hard work of Being. You can read these poems every day and never cease to find new truths and new life. I am grateful to have these prayers that "help me be."
I thoroughly enjoyed this book of poems. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys prayer poems or who looking for a new way to pray.
I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!
