“Cradled in His Mighty Arms: How God Has Blessed a Southern Woodsman”: a pool of engrossing poems that tells a life story of a Christian woodsman. “Cradled in His Mighty Arms: How God Has Blessed a Southern Woodsman” is the creation of published author John Williams, a writer who worked at a Hattiesburg MS bank long enough to realize that a career with an outdoor setting would suit him better. He began work in the timber business, which became one of the loves of his life. At his young age, he was inspired by some of the great poetic works—its symmetry and rhyme along with meaningful content, inspired him to create poetry of his own.

Williams writes, “Cradled in His Mighty Arms contains poetry covering five major areas of my life spanning forty-four years. The first two, work and recreation, are forestry-related. The prison ministry, family, and love of God round out this delve into the adventures of my life expressed uniquely and entertainingly.

This work contains poetry that expresses my relationships in each of these areas. I preface the poems relating the reasons for writing them and situations surrounding their creation.

The poetry in Cradled in His Mighty Arms was written about real-life happenings while I was experiencing life itself. Most of the poems came to me while operating tree harvesting equipment and dealing with the challenges of production. Surrounded by a strange mixture of beautiful forests and uncommon danger, faced daily by men and women in the forestry field, I relate stories and actual happenings through poetry, that are both easy to read and comprehend. I share my love of the outdoors as well as the love I have for God, family, and my calling in the prison ministry. The work is easy to read and understand while being deep, thought-provoking, and at times humorous as well.

I feel the poetry within is encouraging and uplifting while telling the story of my journey as a Christian woodsman. If this book of poetry can change a person’s perspective of life from the negative to the positive, it would have been well worth the effort. If only one person strives to draw nearer to Christ through this work, I would consider it a success.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, John Williams’s new book is a captivating craft that will take the readers into a breath-taking forest adventure through the poems written by a God-loving woodsman.

Inside this book are heartwarming poems that touch the heart of the readers and changes their life from negative to positive. And, as this book unfolds every story, readers will come to realize that in every adventure they will take in life, God will never let them face the challenges alone.
