Scripture Power Poems is a collection of 85 poems fulfilling my wish for poetic expression. I hope they may have special meaning to others who read them. In my early years at home and in elementary school, I became somewhat enchanted by some of the poems I heard that were read to me by others. Some of my early teachers required their students to memorize and recite aloud a few simple verses of poetry. A few of those poems I can still recite. Most of the poems presented here express traditional family values from a Christian viewpoint. I strongly believe I was spiritually called to make a contribution in this regard. In most cases, each of the poems reference through footnotes one or more Biblical scriptures that relate to key words or phrases within the poem.
