A memoir in poems from a woman who has been a children’s minister, Christian mother and wife of a Christian pastor.

"Maeve's Poetic Vibes" by Elisient Maeve Vernon is a Christian poetry book. A memoir in poems from a woman who has been a children’s minister, Christian mother and wife of a Christian pastor, this collection would be a blessed read for believers in Jesus Christ. 


The book of poetry is separated by theme, including a section of cute and rhyming children's poems, highlighting the author's experience in childhood ministry. There are poems of inward reflection, gratitude, worry, praise, and grief. Most are uplifting and all focus on a loving Christian god.


From "Service: Where do you stand?"


Where do you stand in the arena of things?
Down front in the limelight for all to see
what a wonderful person you’ve turned out to be?
Or smack in the middle… a great place to hide.
No one will notice you … let your abilities slide...
Where do you stand in the arena of things?
Why not stand humbly in the rear…
willing, available, waiting from God to hear?
How can you serve? How can you share?
The answer is simple... b be willing, be there!


Inter-personal relationships between mother and son, wife and husband, and god and humans are explored. There is an entire section about church leaders, obviously inspired by her pastor husband.


From "To A Pastor"


You’ve passed through bitter waters,
You’ve had so many foes
And Satan like a monster,
Has thrown so many blows:
But you have fought them skilfully
With Jesus at your side,
With prayer as your weapon and
The Bible as your guide.


This book could provide moments for inspirational religious meditation. It would make an excellent read for Christian mothers, religious education/C.C.D. teachers/catechists, and for other people who may appreciate an uplifting collection of Christian poetry.
