Higher Than the Mountains

Joann Nelander

Higher than the Mountains, a book of poetry and prayer. It is a respite for your quieter moments. It is for those who are anxious and worried about many things and who now desire the better part, the something, or Someone, clothed in the ordinary, hidden in your heart. While drawing from my life experience as wife, mother, nurse, and artist, I also find inspiration all about me, though it is in the stillness that I listen best. Then my own voice fades away, but not until I speak my heart to God. In solitude, the world does seem to stand aside for the whisper or thunder or just the beating of my heart.
