Poet Ana Lisa de Jong, author of the three volume ‘Poetry of the Soul’ series, brings a further offering of poetry to the table with her new book ‘Heart Psalms’. The first published book in her new ‘Songs of the Heart’ series. In ‘Heart Psalms’ she delights her readers once again with a further outpouring of grace-filled spiritual nourishment. This large volume of poetry contains her most recent prolific writing, for which she has built a wide audience on-line, with her unique poetry touching and moving hearts and minds of people in all corners of the world.
Readers of ‘Heart Psalms’ refer to Ana Lisa’s ‘heart connection with her readers as she observes the spiritual landscape with penetrating eyes’, and her writing being ‘grounded on a rock of reality where illusion falls away’. They talk about the ‘thread of grace’ which ‘weaves its way through her writings, carrying us to the light’.
Ana Lisa writes for herself and yet for everyone. She seems to have an ability to tap in to universal feelings, and common questions, while at the same time providing encouragement and answers that transcend our ordinary understanding, bringing solace and relief to her readers, in ever changing and challenging times.
As one reader put it: ‘Ana Lisa weaves a story of our humanity that is both universal and personal. She honours the wisdom of our inheritance, yet sings of the living of our life in these times. She accompanies us in all the stages and seasons of life and we feel that we are not alone. Her book is a precious and graceful gift.’
In the same vein as her ‘Poetry of the Soul’ series, Ana Lisa’s poetry is accompanied with stunning scenic photography of New Zealand scenery, which makes her new book both a treasure to read and to look at. A wonderful resource for daily reflections, along with a tool for retreats and quiet times.
