Hearts on Pilgrimage: Poems and Prayers, by Jody L. Collins

Jody L. Collins, my friend and fellow writer, knows how to listen.

She listens to people.
She listens to God.
And she listens to nature.

A poet at heart, Jody spent years reading and absorbing inspiration from the work of dozens of fine poets. Along the way, she blended their inspiration with her other listenings into a body of original poetry. Universal music in her own voice.

In this book, Hearts on Pilgrimage: Poems and Prayers, she has collected her poems and organized them into phases or seasons. Read through these pieces, maybe straight through from first page to last. Or browse the titles–the lovely, the whimsical, the no-nonsense–to see what catches your fancy. “Thresh Hold,” perhaps? or “Gossamer Faith,” or “Steps to Picking Raspberries.”

Most importantly, take time to enjoy, to savor each one.

To listen.

Hearts on Pilgrimage: Poems and Prayers is available from Amazon.com or wherever books are sold.

Thanks for reading,


About Jan C. Johnson

Welcome! If you like food, reading, laughing over life's little disasters, and maybe thinking about the bigger things of life, you have come to the right place. Besides blogging, I write humorous fiction, though real life tends to leave fictional humor in the shade. But I'm not a total goofball. No, really. I'm also working on a biography project. I live in North Texas with my husband, Brent. We enjoy bicycling, Mexican food, and traveling to visit our kids and grandkids.
