About the Book
The title of our book 2gether: Do-N-Poetry with God is Poetic is based on inspirational poems about life’s experiences, spiritual truths, revelations, and testimonies. The poems are written by a Man and Woman of God to uplift and to encourage others not to give up but to keep your faith, hope and trust in God no matter what you may be going through. “For greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)
Each poem is an expression of our love through poetry for God and His love for us. God is Jehovah Jireh (My Provider) and our main source. The Bible tells us “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)
God not only loves us but cares about family, unity, our relationships and getting along with one another. One of the Bible scriptures asks us in Amos 3:3: “Can two walk together, except they be agreed”? Therefore, we must put God first, pray every day, love and respect and forgive each other.
May God Bless you & your family
To God Be The Glory!
