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.
