ENUMCLAW, Wash., Mar. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- Author Larry D. Burns, a victim of child abuse and a recent survivor of cancer identifies with hurting souls. Now Burns spreads God's words of healing through his testimony of forgiveness and through poems that will lift the heart, penetrate the soul and leave readers with a new sense of healing. His words of empathy in "Emonetry [Pleasant Word, 2006]," a compilation of poetry, do not solely touch the African American community, but all those who need to throw away their emotional crutches.
"Emonetry" helps build compassion, courage, and renewed strength in those who have suffered heartache, sickness, or disaster. Burns says his vision is to help rebuild the human spirit with faith and hope and to renew hearts of peace. Once captive to his pain, Burns is no longer a victim since he's forgiven abusers. Now he strives to help troubled youth, encouraging them to forgive and rise above their pain by seeking their Maker. "No matter who you are or where you are, trust in God through the good times and bad. By the grace of God I made it through and so can you," encourages Burns.
The book is filled with beautiful prose and with words of comfort for the wounded heart, the suffering soul racked with pain, and the troubled spirit.
