Poetry writing experience
I wrote my first poem in grade school in a card for my dad. I still have it. I wrote occasionally over the years and as a Christian adult I got down on my knees one day and asked God for the gift of poetry. My first Christian poem came instantly and I went and wrote it down. I have been writing ever since. My mom also had the gift of poetry and in her honor I use my middle name's initial T. for Theresa. I am named after her.
State or country in which the poet resides
Testimony of saving faith for Christians only
Very hard times brought me to a place in my life where I knew I needed God. I accepted Jesus as my personal savior in the privacy of my living room after reading Catherine Marshall's books.
About the Poet
I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandma of five, including twin granddaughters. I love to write poetry, take nature photos, and collect buttons. I have close to 30,000 buttons. I am retired after more than 30 years of senior care including 13 years working with Alzheimers residents.
I've been writing poetry (like my mom) since I was little. I still have my first poem. It was in a card I gave to my dad. As an adult I prayed for the gift of encouragement and poetry. I think it's so important to encourage others in their faith and also unbelievers. God has brought me through so much and I am thankful for my salvation. I asked Jesus into my heart and have never regretted a single moment. It was a true blessing when 3 of my poems where published. One in a local newspaper and two in different magazines. You can also find me on my facebook page at Whispers of Hope/Linda T. Reich where I post short devotionals, my nature photos and poems. Thank you. ♥
