There is nothing in the world more devastating
to a parent than to have a prodigal child.

  "Rita Aiken Moritz has examined the blessings and adversities of living and has shared some of her conclusion in this collection of poems. Her work speaks of family and faith, of delight and despair, but with the hopeful cords of Godís grace and goodness tying them together. Therefore she could write, "For on the ground, surrounded by the rain, / with vision limited, I see my pain. / But I can know the sun shines way above, / and I can rest in Godís unchanging love." Anyone who has struggled in his or her walk with God will relate to the centrality of Ritaís poetry."

Joe Whitten, author of Learning To Tell Time and
past President, Alabama State Poetry Society, Odenville, AL

 
 
 
 

"The beauty in poetry that flows from the heart is that it touches all who read it, for everyone can identify with the love, the joy, the loss, and the heartbreak of humanness. The words given life by author Rita Moritz pull a reader in and bring him back to his own childhood in poems like "Grandma Sang a Song," which evokes both deep spirituality and childlike innocence in a shared moment between generations. She ponders the place of a loving wife beside a devoted husband in poems like "Hero" and "On Being a Christian Wife": harmony is illuminated as one can see the delight in the simple pleasure of having and being a spouse. There are many poems that touch the deepest of emotions: children finding their own way, children losing their way, a person dealing with less than ideal family, a person finding comfort in the hands of God. "My Daddy" beautifully illustrates a life of despair turned by the love of our great Savior. The author ends her collection with "Hodgepodge," which delights readers with playful words and insightful thoughts. Overall, the collection presented within Precious Poems: A Journey of Hope truly takes the reader on a journey through family trials, triumphant victories, selfless devotion, and idiosyncratic wonderment: a jumble of what it means to be human in this world."

Lauren Ashley Kitchens, poet, artist, Instructor of English,
Jefferson State Community College, Clanton, AL

 
 
 

"Precious Poems is well written and captures the heart. I could relate to so many of these poems and so will you. This book will inspire you to fully experience every moment of life. Read it, think about it, and enjoy it."

Steve Reynolds, author of Bod4God and Get Off The Couch.
Pastor, Capital Baptist Church, Annandale, VA

 
 
 
  "Our greatest comfort and hope comes from God's most holy word, the Bible. When you take His word and couple it with the remarkable writing skills, experiences and knowledge of this precious lady, the final result will be what you have before you. I encourage everyone to read this book and simply be blessed."

Dale Foote, Pastor, Seddon Baptist Church, Pell City, AL
