Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need

Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need is a book that we published with Time of Singing poetry journal. I reread the book recently, and the poems are strong and timeless.

Lora Homan Zill and I served as the Editors. Charles A. Waugaman was the Art Editor and Illustrator.

The book includes poems by many poets. With the universal themes of faith and hope, the book continues to be a beautiful work of art.

new beginnings

My pace is slower now, older now. Some life chapters are well in the past, and yet creativity renews, with care and time. I have known an academic career in education, chronic illness, caregiving, volunteer work, and the history we all share. Grateful.

By God’s grace, and help from many people, my art grows through difficult times. I look for beauty every day. And some days I simply need to rest. My goal with my blogs is to offer hope. Thank you. Ellen Grace Olinger
