The publisher provided an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
with the reader as she pours out her heart and soul in words that fairly leap off the page. The expressions in word and picture are vivid, touched with awe and whimsy, strength and tenderness. True to the book's title, these are passionate prayers to a beloved Being who keeps us in His eternal watch care. I was enthralled by the richness and power of the language of love, then moved to sweet tears by the child-like simplicity of her queries in "Thoughts." I heartily recommend this small volume to seekers, finders, and those in between, all of whom can revel in the freshness and beauty of this work.
Lou Mulford Greig is in love—with life, her husband and family, but most deeply with the Lord. In her Christian journal, Passion & Praise, An Inspirational Collection of Poetry and Photography, this multi-talented artist depicts wonder, awe, fear, worry, doubt, passion, and praise through her poems while she shares her inner thoughts and asks such questions as, “Where does my mind go when it wanders?” “Are dreams reality, too?” “Why must it take a lifetime to mature?”
Greig intersperses her original photographs with appropriate biblical quotes between poems, making this small tome the type of book one picks up and reads a little bit at a time, over and over again. (I keep mine near my computer to remind me what is important on days when I forget.) Her pictures show the world’s magnificence and life’s significance, reminding us that simple things, such as a child’s wonder or a hummingbird feeding bring joy to each day.
When I received this book, I opened it to “The Answer,” a poem that brought me solace and gave me hope on a day that I needed both. It reminded me that those we love never really leave us, and our faith will reunite all of our spirits one day.
Passion & Praise, An Inspirational Collection of Poetry and Photography, touches the heart and the soul. Filled with poems that explore the human relationship to God, this gem is a must read for those who seek deeper spiritual messages and wish to spend quiet time with the Lord.
