"I bought this book several months ago and am still enjoying it. There is a wide variety of poems within its pages, so I never grow tired of reading and re-reading the beautiful lines. The writing is excellent and the tender spirit of the author is evident in every verse. For anyone who enjoys good Christian poetry, "Forever Grateful" is an excellent choice. It would also make a great gift, because the message within is never overbearing, but always gentle and humble. I think anyone could relate to this praise-filled poetry. It is so well-written"

"I was given this book as a gift, and it is most certainly one of the loveliest gifts I have received received. The poems are beautifully written, evoking emotions that bring feelings of a greater connection to our loving and great God. Some of the poems also include biblical references. One of my favourite poems from the book is There's Hope. This poem reminded me of the affirmation that God is with me throughout all the problems life throws at me, inspiring hope that He will make all things right when I am trusting in Him. Whenever I feel down, this will always be my go-to reading to uplift and comfort me, and remind me that I am not alone - He is always there. Reading the poems with my Mum was really emotional and at points I really felt the words expressed how I feel for God, and my appreciation of how much better my life is since I came to know Him…..”
