“Every breath I take is a prayer” are the words that Norma-Jean Strickland uses to introduce this gem of a book, and it proves to be true in the way the author illustrates how every experience can be turned into a source of connection with God. Bite-Sized Prayers: Non-Denominational Morsels to Feed Your Soul is an unusual book, partly inspirational and poetic, featuring words of every day and words with deep spiritual import. The author unveils the hidden depths of the words by writing short lines of poetry that create worlds readers can step into and pause to think, to wonder, to pray, to dare, to drink from the wellsprings of life.
With simplicity of style, Norma-Jean Strickland helps readers shift their perspective in life by inviting them to enter into the world of the words they use every day, offering new insights with her poetry and revealing new meanings. This book is about the power of the words we use and how we can use them to define a path for the soul. For instance, the word “YES” can imply a lot, and it disposes the soul to accept and release positive energy: “Your energy soars,” “Your essence shines,” and “You emerge successfully,” are a few of her interpretations to the word. Each poem, each interpretation features an invitation to enter deeper into our connection with self and with the Divine. The photography adds beauty and depth to the entire book and invites readers to a wonderful visual experience. It makes for a great addition to the collection of books for readers who enjoy colorful and inspiring books.
