    This excellent poetry book, which is entitled, "Spiritual Encouragement," by Christina Jussaume, is like a capstone project in a final series of poetry projects-it's uplifting and inspirational! In addition to being a practicing poet, Jussaume is the style manager for the World-Wide Alliance of Poets (aka Poetry Alliance), which is located in the UK. She is instrumental, dedicated, and creative in carrying out her duties and responsibilities. This book speaks highly of her dedication and creativity. As a poet, who sheds the light of learning for others to enjoy. She also demystifies the art of poetry for other to understand, without complexities. The book's dedication goes directly to her family and friends for their encouragement. As a Christian poet, her belief is that one should hold others in great esteem above themselves for the blessing to flow from God. One ought to live a balance life (pp.1), and do not let the enemy sway (pp. 2). She professes that in her heart she...

She feels joy within her heart as she releases the past (pp.9), and victory is what she expects now that she is thinking positively (pp.10). She attests that she will focus on looking ahead (pp18), and the Spirit will guide her choices in life (pp. 20). She articulates that a wide doorway is now open before her (pp. 32), and she will stand strong and face all challenges (pp.34); additionally, she will claim victory through God as the Holy Spirit guides her each day (pp. 40).
