“For the Sake of My Children”: an evoking account of poems inspired by the author’s challenging motherhood, marriage, and loss that allowed God’s love and healing to shine through. “For the Sake of My Children” is the creation of published author Yvonne White, a mother of six from Jamaica.

An excerpt from the book further explains, “‘For the Sake of My Children’ is a book of poetry inspired by one woman's challenges with relationships and motherhood. The poems inside will bring readers from anger and fear toward feelings of wonder at the face of God as they contemplate the experiences of a woman motivated in all things to keep her children safe.

“Born in Jamaica, Yvonne was raised by her grandparents. She is a proud mother of six children. She went to the college of hard knocks called life. She has been knocked down several times, but for the sake of her children, she found herself asking God for wisdom to know that she would overcome.

“Yvonne started writing when she was abandoned by her first husband with their children while he rode off into the sunset and started another family. She completed a course in community development, then worked in several communities across Jamaica. In 1999, she was laid off. Faced with the fear of losing their home and splitting up her children, she went to court seeking the judge’s assistance in getting child support; only to have a high-court judge tell her to send her children to the poorhouse.

“It was only by the grace of God that Yvonne did not lose her mind. She wants her children to know that people can be cruel, but she holds onto the hope that they will have a much brighter future. Her faith in God remains strong even after the death of her daughter, Jodi. She still sings songs of praise to God and shows her children what it is to believe through it all!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Yvonne White’s new book guides readers from feelings of pain to a sense of enlightenment. These poems stand as evidence of God’s open arms that he uses to cradle the broken.

This book also paints a portrait of the unconditional love of a mother for her children and a yearning for justice to prevail during moments of trial.
