From the joy of being alive through the days of falling in love, raising a family, finding faith-questioning and living it-changing, maturing, and finally facing life's closure, this book of poetry presents it all. Then, in case that isn't enough, a bevy of songs are added to express life yet another way.

Love: "Spray bounced off the strictest cliffs, Coating briefly lovers' lips" Life's changes: "The emptiness the quiet space The laughter gone Some other place" Faith: "I am no longer my own, but Thine. Put me to what Thou wilt. Rank me with whom Thou wilt." And facing life's closure: "Fine old house, We have outlived them all And you shall remain When I am gone. Then you will fill again. You will never be alone." Then, after the poetry, comes music of faith and life that ends on this spirited note: "Kick up your heels, baby! Life is to be lived!

About the Author:

Ruth Truman is the author of five published books: Underground Manual For Ministers' Wives and Other Bewildered Women; How To Be A Liberated Christian; Spaghetti From the Chandelier; Not Of This Fold; and an academic book entitled The Mission Of the Church College. Married to a United Methodist pastor, her writings range from the comedic happenings of life with four children in the parsonage to her Ph.D. research at UCLA where she was the commencement speaker at the age of 46. With the exception of The Mission of the Church College (UCLA Press), her books are available through her website, www.ruthtruman.com, or by order from www.amazon.com or local bookstores. To Life! A Book of Poetry and Songs is a compilation of a lifetime of thoughts written in all phases of life, and music and theater which has accompanied her life journey. Whether at the keyboard, in church choir or chorale, the community theater, or singing as she works at home, it is music and a fascination with words that defines and lifts her spirit. She, with her husband Lee, have passed this on to their four grown children and five grandchildren who reflect this in their involvement in music, art, and theater. Prominent in her writing is her Christian commitment as the foundation of her faith and life. The reader of To Life!, etc. will recognize the struggle to search for an understanding of God and life's purpose, along with joy and rejoicing in the goodness that life presents when lived in faith.
