    A Book Is A Garden That Fits In Your Hands When asked to write an endorsement for this collection I was honored. Not only because I love poetry, but because of my love for the author. Imogene Centers married my Uncle Silas Church when I was only a year old and never in my remembered life has there been a time when I didn’t have Aunt Genie as a role model of faith. Sometime after my mom passed I began calling her Aunty Mom…for that is what she is to me. As a child I was blessed from time to time to visit the church they pastored. Hearing her sing, play the organ, preach, and teach Bible stories (illustrated with chalk drawings) always sparked my imagination and confirmed God’s love for me. I treasure the times our families got together for holidays and vacations. These many years later her three daughters and I (all of us grandmothers now) have memories that linger and bless. Reading these poems transports me back over the sixty plus years I have had the honor of knowing this author.... More > In all these years her love of God and family has never wavered. It was also wonderful to discover, in some of the family poems, that Aunty Mom’s wit and sense of humor is as sharp and delightful at as ever. This collection of poems is impressive for a professional writer and to realize they were actually written by a great great grandmother in her 80’s who had never written a poem…is awe inspiring. Someone once said, “A book is a garden that fits in the hand…” You hold in your hands a garden of love from the heart of a remarkable woman. It has word petals of wisdom...stems of strength...deep roots of faith and love…all framed in a family heritage that has left footprints on our souls. Walk through her garden…turn a page and turn the seasons…read the words and enjoy her roses…you will be blessed. Wanda Winters-Gutierrez Author, Poet, Inspirational Teacher< Less
