Rejoice! Rejoice! Poems for the Holidays is a book of Christian poetry. Throughout scripture the people of God are called to rejoice because He is King and Creator of all and because He loves us. One of my favorite verses is Philippians 4:4, which says, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” This little book of poetry is all about rejoicing in the Lord through the many holidays of the church year.

It begins with Advent and preparation for the coming of Christ, at Christmas and in the future. It ends with Thanksgiving and a reminder that God is the source of all we have to be thankful for. In between, you’ll find the Lenten season, Holy Week, Pentecost, and more. Some holidays are somber and others are festive, but all are a reason to Rejoice that God is King and Creator of all. The 72 poems in this book range from free verse to form poetry, such as triolets, pantoums, sedokas, and acrostics. Each is written to help you focus on the One in whom we rejoice.

Light in My Darkness: Poems of Hope for the Brokenhearted is my first book of poetry chronicling my struggles with major clinical depression and how God was a light in my darkness of depression. This poetry offers hope for others struggling not only with depression but other trials and tribulations that life throws at every one of us at one time or another.

What others are saying about this small volume of poetry:

“It won’t take very many people to turn their lives around for this book of poetry to be a spiritual success and victory. It will go further than a few people – it is destined to reach many who are in depression and see no hope! Linda describes the depression so well – but she goes way beyond and gives the Answer, the Source of Healing!”
Carol J. Wright, Lake Oswego, Oregon.

“Reading through Linda’s poetry is not a matter of mere lines. Every poem requires a deep breath and a substantial pause.”
Leanne Forster, Olympia, Washington.

“Never underestimate the sheer power of poetry. It is formidable. Linda knows this, and she has compiled this book from direct experience. And that is remarkable. I hope you’ll read this with an inquisitive heart and an eager mind. Good poetry should carry a weight of truth wherever it might lead. All that it requires is all of you. Poetry requires your full attention, at least to appreciate it fully. Linda honors God in what she has written. I know her intention is to bring Him glory, and she does it fearlessly. What you read here comes from life’s furnace—things will be imparted through these poems. I pray the Lord’s blessing on this little book. Read this book. Squeeze out the truth each poem has. I know that the author would appreciate it immensely.”
Bryan Lowe, Homer, Alaska.

  1. Hello, My name is David Ramos. I am a fellow Christian author like yourself. I noticed you review books sometimes on your blog (The Robe) and wanted to see if you would be interested in doing a swap.

    I would send you my book (Climbing with Abraham) so you could review it and in exchange I would review your most recent book (Light in my Darkness) on both my blog and on Amazon.

    Let me know if you are interested! Have a blessed day!


    • David, I would be happy to review your book, but I would prefer if you would review my upcoming book, which will be out by next week. It is another book of poetry that is for the holidays of the church year, from Advent through Easter and to Thanksgiving. Peace, Linda
