When life, love, anger, fear, joy, and death arrive, how will you respond? Ode to Life: Poems to Live By shares varying perspectives on Life, from youthful bliss to marital distress; from thankfulness to death. Inspired by Proverbs, this book recognizes that each event we confront has significance in shaping not only our view of ourselves, but also how we view and value others. The realities of the content are a reminder of how balanced and imbalanced life can and will be, as well as how love, honesty, and integrity can still be exuded during even the most compelling of times.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Brenda Edwards writes musical poetry to your heart. In Ode to Life, Brenda captures the notes of life that we’ve all heard and puts them into songs that we want to listen to, but one at a time. In her poems, you’ll hear the crescendo of happiness, the chords of heartache, and the ballads of everything in-between. You’ll be glad to listen because her poems echo your own life’s music.”

—John K. Nagle, Pastor-Teacher, North Coast Family Fellowship, Seaside, Oregon
