Christine Interviewed on the Faith Conversations Podcast

Christine was interviewed about her forthcoming collection Love Holds You: Poems and Devotions for Times of Uncertainty on the Faith Conversations podcast. The format of this new book takes the reader on a journey. We get to experience it on the podcast as Christine reads a number of poems and helps us spend time reflecting on the content. These words from the back cover of the book are appropriate, “When it seems you walk alone, let these words help reveal love as the ground beneath you.”

Listen to the podcast and poems here.

Learn more and pre-order Love Holds You. (Available May 9th from Paraclete Press. Paraclete is offering a 20% discount for pre-orders when you use the code LoveHoldsYou at their website). Christine will be hosting a free virtual book launch on May 8th with Simon de Voil joining her to provide music.
