About the Author: Juanita DeHart
Juanita finds solace in Christ-centered prayer, reading, poetry writing, music, and artistic expression. Her poetry is a spiritual byproduct of contemplative explorations across profitable paths of pain and pleasure, into optimistic realms of positive possibility. Juanita's courage is enhanced by poetically encouraging others to participate in God’s Divine plan for their lives. Her motto is “Don’t Quit!” Having had several opportunities to give up and let go of her dreams and faith in God’s Promises, Juanita has persevered over the pressures of failure, disappointment, and strife, by believing that nothing is impossible for God. She considers her relationship with Him to be her most treasured asset. Looking upward and ahead has not been easy, but God has always been faithful to supply her with words of life and inspiration through the wonderful people who have paralleled and diagonally crossed her way. She’s thankful for the precious souls who touched her mind, will, and emotions in both positive and negative encounters. Be it through social interaction, teaching, preaching, reading, listening to tapes, radio, or T.V; Juanita gleans from the vast supply of life changing experience they’ve shared. It is her pleasure to pass their influence on to others through poetry, song, and hopeful expressions from her heart.
Working in corporate settings since 1977, has made it necessary for Juanita to set her face like a flint, and faithfully focus on personal ministry to God; in order to escape distracting uncertainties surrounding the cares of life that surface from day to day. Making His focus her priority equips her with the spiritual and emotional stamina required to encourage and exhort the hearts of others. Her prayer is that all who read her poetry will be blessed by the deposit of God’s Gracious Gift in her pen and heart.
