Overview

When you read through the scriptures of the Bible, it is hard not to see the poetic nature of God's words of love to His children, most of all to His Son, Jesus Christ. You find that in your favorite scripture verses, words that speak to your heart and your situation. Author Diane Goold finds the same when spending time in the Bible, which prompted her to create her own reference guide of biblical paraphrases and prayers to God, Bible Prayers and Poetic Passages. The book encompasses Bible passages paraphrased by the author to maximize the merits of Christ-like living and becoming living sacrifices for God. The topics range from prayers for strength in Jesus to prayers for praise and thanksgiving to passages centered on wisdom and discernment from the Lord. The author also includes her personal biblical poetry to inspire readers' faith. Let God's scriptural poetry transform your faith. I live in Shawnee, Kansas, along with my husband Clarence. We enjoy the companionship of our daughter and husband, Shelly and Cameron Hartl and our three grandchildren, Kiera, Carver and Harrison. Since retiring from a career in education, I have at last fulfilled my life-long dream of becoming a published author. I am an Elder in the Community of Christ, am a self-taught pianist and retired elementary classroom and music teacher. In 1992, I wrote and published a song for the Maryville, Mo D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education Program), entitled Dare to Be Different, when my husband was the D.A.R.E. resource officer there. I have written, and published poetry, and as the Newspaper in Education Director at the St. Joseph (MO) News-Press, have created and published numerous NIE classroom resources. Although publishing books is a new experience for me, writing them has occurred over several years. I published my first book, Diane's Daily Devotions in 2014. While writing that book, the thought for this book formed, as a complementary handbook. All Christians desire to read and understand the Scriptures, but many don't have time to search out those most relevant to their lives. This book will help readers easily find and study the most cherished and memorable Scriptures. I've formatted them as prose and poetry rather than a more tedious scripture form. My hope is that readers will find a deeper sense of the beauty of the Scripture passages, in this format. I've included a collection of some of the poems I've written, as a final section of the book. While not Scriptural, they do blend the application of the Scriptures with events in our everyday lives. May you be filled with God's spirit as you read and reflect on each scripture in this collection of Treasured Words of God. God Bless You, Diane Goold, Author of Diane's Daily Devotions and Treasured Words of God www.dianegoold.com cd.goold@yahoo.com Facebook: Diane's Daily Devotions
