Within the pages of Poetic Journey Through an Artist’s Soul ($10.99, paperback, 978-1-61379-351-0; $5.49, eBook, 978-1-61379-787-7), an inspiring and enlightening new Xulon Press book from author M. Marie Bartlett-Bettger, is a collection of award-winning poems the author began writing in the late 1980s as well as some of her recent political poems. Not only did she write all the poems but she created the cover as well. Her poems have been read by readers both young and old, and many of them have previously been published in poetic anthologies.
“My poems give a Christian moral message on daily family life and politics,” the author says. “Poetic Journey Through an Artist’s Soul is just a small sample of my almost 200 poems that make up the original book that took more than 20 years to create—Diary of an Artist’s Soul—where I illustrated every page on parchment in full color in pointillism, which I have won awards for.”
There have been many times in the author’s life when she should have died and she asked the Lord, “Why am I still here?” She decided to write this book to collect an account of all these times. Most of her poems reflect something that has personally happened to her, and thus, they will resonate with readers from all walks of life. “I am an artist to the marrow of my bone,” she explains. “The poems come from my soul and all my talent is a gift from my Lord.”
