**New Release** The Clay in the Potter’s Hands: Southern Poetry by Jen Lowry

I’m so blessed to have supportive people in my life who believe in my writing. Thank you for the constant encouragement and push. It is very vulnerable to release a piece of your heart on paper. I talk more about that in the Reflections section of The Clay in the Potter’s Hands: Southern Poetry.

I’ve been writing poetry for a long time, over 300 titles, hiding away in the notes section of my phone. It was time. I was called out. Challenged. I answered.

The Clay in the Potter’s Hands: Southern Poetry is broken up into two sections. Part One: Shaping shares memories from my childhood and doodles illustrated by me. I am not claiming to be an artist. I woke up this week and the Holy Spirit said, “Draw,” so I did. We love Shel Silverstein in my house. My kids still have their hardback editions of Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic. I teach a poem every year from his collection. His little sketches make us laugh each time. I wanted that feel in my own book, just little sketches here and there to remind me that my imperfections in drawing don’t have to stop me from being creative.

Part Two: Modeling shares poetry of my adult life. Losing my family, dealing with my circumstances, moving on, living…it’s all there. Raw. Me. My heart on a page. For people to see. For you.

I hope it serves as an encouragement to someone. Maybe one poem out of the 106 pages will call your name. Maybe you will say, “That’s the one…” and know that you are not alone. Because you’re not. I’m here. So is the Lord. Amen.

Thank you for sharing this author journey with me. It means the world.

I would like to introduce to you, The Clay in the Potter’s Hands: Southern Poetry so you can take a sneak peek.
