“To my Valentine,
The Lord directed me to you
At first I thought, how can this be!
But, over the years, Ive found the truth
That part of you, was part of me”
Carol J. Allen, the author of Through My Eyes (AuthorHouse; 2008), shares experiences from her life that have stayed with her to this day. The story begins with Carols life, told through her recalled memories, where her thoughts are expressed in the poems with an interpretation that reveals the influence people had in her life.
Carol began writing poems in junior high school, and her poems were later published in the International Library of Poetry, as one of The Best Poems and Poets of 2007. She also wrote a poem in the Collected Whispers in 2008. Two years of college (Labor Relations), followed by two years at the Institute of Childrens Literature.
With this in mind, Carol has developed her writing and poetic talents to create this literary composition that is both spiritual and inspirational in nature, making readers laugh and cry. And, Through My Eyes, is only a small portion of what she has published over the years. It uses Carols personal narrative to show how spirituality develops in peoples lives, as well as the value of following ones dreams and listening to the voice in ones heart.
A good read that inspires, motivates, and nurtures the mind (and spirit); it can help readers feel more connected and at ease in the middle of chaos. Developing habits that encourage readers to be inventive, creative, and kind to oneself and others. Its a remarkable book that can help readers in dealing with difficult situations and possibly create a positive mindset.
Hence, if youre feeling distant from family, friends, or just plain lonely, Carols new release is without a doubt the one that readers should read. If youre looking for the true meaning of life and spirituality, this spiritual and inspirational book is a great place to start.
