Former NY Nurse Publishes Poetry on Human Spirituality

Poughkeepsie, New York   August 12, 2014   Entertainment News
(PRLEAP.COM) August 12, 2014 - "Speaking Poetically Through Me," Veronica Swanigan's new collection of spiritual poems, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Swanigan says, "We were all born in sin, shaped in iniquity and without Christ in a fallen world that was once a paradise God created. How we came to this is not a mystery, but a harsh reality caused by our own spiritual weakness. In a world filled with lost and suffering souls, there are only two ways to choose: to continue the journey toward darkness and be eternally lost, or step into the marvelous light of Jesus Christ and be born again by accepting and living God's Word which is life eternal. The Bible tells us to choose life and live!"

In "Speaking Poetically Through Me," Veronica Swanigan shares pieces of poetry that beckon the readers to reflect on their own, as well as the Church's, spiritual condition. Through poems such as "If Jesus Knocked on Your Door" and "A Wounded Soul," Veronica Swanigan unveils the message of God to His people as well as His love.
