Songs for the Spirit

Hi! My name is Nesta. I have been writing poetry since I was a teenager.

In 1976 after battling deep depression for many years, leading to a desire to take my own life, I put my trust in Jesus Christ to be my Savior and Lord.

The Christian life, although not easy, has been and is a continuing adventure.

I am delighted to share the wonderful discoveries, challenges and rewards of my daily walk with Jesus.

My hope is that through these poems, searching souls will sense the fragrance of His sweet life.

My prayer is that you will be drawn to Him, receive Him into your heart and life, and enter into the joys of His great redeeming love.

Perhaps my Christian brothers and sisters will also find encouragement in their walk with God.

    My dear precious friend, Over the past, almost 40 years of our friendship, Nesta, your poems have been a great blessing and encouragement to me. You know I have desired that others could read them. I am so thrilled that now others will be blessed by the wonderful gift of poetry that the Lord has given you. I pray many hearts and lives will be touched and drawn to our Saviour, Jesus, through your scripturally-based poems. Love you and the website.
