A collection of christian, inspirational, personal and patriotic poems presented as parts of a life-time of poetic works, authored by an American business executive and novelist. This is structured poetry that invites the reader to explore their own spiritual well-being through the discussion and thoughtful study of many facets of the christian religion. A celebration of family, American life and a poetic salute to America and particularly to the US Marine Corps.
Bill Van Zanten and his wife Myrna live in Gilbert, Arizona. Bill has been, among other things, an international business executive, business owner and entrepreneur. He is a long-time Christian. He is a decorated veteran of the United States Marine Corps, where he served as an infantry officer. He wrote "Don't Bunch Up. One Marine's Story," an autographical account of his service in Vietnam. He takes enormous pride in his family roles of father and grandfather. He hopes, now, to add the term "poet" to his resume.
