In September, I look forward to my poem "Creation" appearing in the gorgeous new children's book For Every Little Thing: Poems and Prayers to Celebrate the Day (Eerdmans Publishing) edited by June Cotner and Nancy Tupper Ling.

For quite few years, I have been fortunate to have my work featured on Your Daily Poem, a wonderful site chock full of talented poets and run by Jayne Jaudon Ferrer. She has just collected 100 Best Poems from a pool of nearly 4000 on the site. Her anthology Poems to Lift You Up and Make You Smile includes my poem "Together" along with 99 other poems guaranteed to inspire, make you laugh or simply brighten your day. It is available now from booksellers upon request, from www.ParsonsPorch.com and on Amazon.
