A Divine Healing Experience
Seeking Solace is written and designed by the Spirit of Christ to heal and bring peace to a multitude of people.
Both authors have combined poetry along with powerful insights that have the ability to change lives.
This is a book that I believe God will use to bring healing and comfort to a hurting generation. At the same time, it will awaken the inner spirit of this generation to receive God’s calling and purpose for their life.
In the poem “The Tale of Many Men,” Eric L Farrell writes, “It’s a spiritual battle no man wins alone/ We’re prodigal children and we need to come home.” This is true to heart, because we all have spiritual battles in life that we must overcome. We can’t do it alone, so Jesus is calling His children to come home.
One of the problems that we face is clearly said in the poem, “Sometimes We Fall” by Will Holmes Jr., when he writes, “Sometimes we close our ears to the truth for fear that we may hear it.” The answer to that problem is given in the poem “My Prayer,” when Holmes writes, “Lord give me the ear to listen so I can hear You when You speak.”
The spirit of the book is enhanced because it shows two poets writing at two separate times, with the Holy Spirit of God keeping them on one accord!
When you read the pages of this book, you will find peace, comfort, and encouragement in your time of need. Also, when reading the stories behind the poems, you will be intrigued enough to revisit and experience the poems again.
True spirit-filled poetry is not only read, it is experienced… and Seeking Solace truly gives a divine healing experience.

An Awesome Ministry Tool!
This book is an awesome ministry tool! The authors speak to so many people's situations and problems; I can see why this is titled "...Solace." It's like a contemporary companion to the Word of God, and it's great the way they ground their poetry in the Word by providing scripture. Even the Introductions to each section of poetry provide great insight and pull us into their world of poetry.
