Lisa’s Thoughts: I received A Friend in the Storm as a free book from Zondervan in exchange for participating in this blog tour. As soon as I received it, I opened it and started going through it. This beautiful book’s poetry with its meaningful quotes, restful colors, and soothing images flows over wounded hearts and surrounds them with serenity and comfort. As a mother of a poet, I truly appreciated Cheryl’s talent. Her words spoke to me in a way I didn’t expect. Her love of Jesus shines in each verse. There’s a comfort in knowing Who she loves. I tried to pick out a favorite poem, but it was a fruitless task because each one speaks to me in a different way. Buy her book and see for yourself!
