Poety in the Spirit – Inspiration at your point of need…

A collection of poems written by the John L. Givens, III – a former Marine Senior Drill Instructor and Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff. A poem a day may not keep the doctor away, but thumbing through the pages of this book will encourage your heart. The author will tell you that he never had a poetic bone in his body, before the Holy Spirit woke him up one day and said, “encourage my people through poetry that I will give you in the Spirit.” John began to write as the Spirit directed him, sometimes with rhyme and sometimes just an encouraging word or dream.

“I am a grown up little boy who has accepted responsibility for myself, the people, places, and things that Almighty God has assigned me to.  As well, I am a student in life’s intriguing classroom, expanding my boundaries with every lesson.”
