GREAT POETRY READING DAY

TL 4-28 POETRY READING DAY

I love the classics, don’t you?

 

GLORY TO MY PARTNER

On this crisp Spring Sunday morning, I’m more than a little excited!  Today I want to introduce you to one of my favorite poets, Lucinda Berry Hill.  Since today is GREAT POETRY READING DAY , I’ve asked Lucinda if she would share a bit about herself with us.  Her inspirational devotional book, “Coffee With Jesus”, has touched the lives of so many people, including mine!  So without further adieu, I introduce the very talented author, Lucinda Berry Hill.

*************************************************
I was born in Millbrook, NY. I currently live in Steelton. I have a 13 year old daughter named Charlotte. I was a single mom for 8 years. I married my husband, Charles and he adopted Charlotte. I’ve had a house cleaning business for over 25 years. I also do some relief care for full time caregivers. In between that and sometimes during I write!!
I started writing poetry when I was 12 years old. I hadn’t accepted Jesus as my Savior yet, but God used me anyway.  I wrote poems about and for Him now and then but it wasn’t until my mid 20’s that I started really writing for the Lord.I believe moving away from family and friends when I was 12 was my start in writing.  I had a sad heart then.  I met a girl who didn’t write poetry but she and her sister read a lot of poetry.  I can’t say that one person in particular inspires me.  It’s a God thing.  He brings people and circumstances into my life that touches me in some way and I have to write.  I’ve even written poetry about something I misread.  Someone said I will sing into you instead of unto you and off I went with a poem called “Into You.”I’ve had poems published in newspapers, read at weddings and at funerals. I’ve written poems about 9/11, the Oklahoma City bombing, the trapped minors incidents, the Sandy Hook school shooting and my most recent current event inspiration was the Boston bombings . I published my first book in 1997 my second one in 2001. And my third came out February of last year. Coffee With Jesus” is a weekly devotional. I used the poems that I’ve written and paired them up with the scripture that inspired them and came up with 52 weeks. I got the idea when a few people told me that they used my previous books as part of their devotional time.

Since the publishing of “Coffee with Jesus” I’ve written several more poems. Some with a touch of humor, inspired by a friend. I even have ideas for three more books.

**************************************************************************

We all know how important it is to keep our bodies and minds in good shape to maintain good health.  A part we too often ignore, however, is the spirit – the soul.  This wonderful devotional book will kick-start your day the way it needs to be – on a positive and upbeat note.  It’s better than just plain ol’ coffee, it’s “Coffee With Jesus”.  I hope you will check it out!!!  ❤

  1. Lucinda has been touching my heart for a number of years now. Her poetry is simply written to open our hearts to Jesus. We need to pray to Him but we also need to listen to Him. With open hearts we can hear and will be blessed by His guidance. Lucinda I pray God will continue to use you to lead us to Him with open arms.
