About the Book

Silver drops of floating stars held in grass to drink as tea funnelled down to roots and soil to form a dewy starlight sea … —Kris Jepsen Kris Jepsen has learned to be ready—and to listen to God’s voice whenever He speaks. In her first collection of writings, she shares prayers and poems intended to lift others up to reflect on their lives and reach for something better through faith and God’s love. In her short prayers, Kris encourages others to embrace hope as the day begins and peace as the sun sets, to see the loveliness of the world and impart kindness, to be comforted by God’s presence, and to be meaningful and useful to all. Within poignant poems, Kris reflects on love, wonder, and nature while exploring an inspirational encounter with a homeless woman, the relationship between mother and daughter as life comes full circle, and a beautiful conversation between St. Peter and God. In this compilation of poems and prayers, a woman of faith reflects on the wonder of love, nature, and the daily inspiration that surrounds all of us.
