Mother Johnson uses this unique collection of poetry to explore faith, family, and the beauty of everyday life. Her reflections and observations of relationships repeatedly challenge us to draw closer to God in faith. Affirming her belief in prayer as the path to faith, wisdom, love, hope, and patience in such poems as "Remember," Mother Johnson directs attention to the spiritual aspects of family, home, and daily life.
