Kroll’s book of Christian poetry was written based on her real life experiences as a meaningful way to encourage readers to have faith and never give up. Her enlightening faith based poems are aimed to ignite imaginations and help to bring young adults closer to their Lord and Savior. She wants readers, ages 13 to 18, to know that even through sadness there is light at the end of the tunnel.
“My father was a minister and I used to take notes while listening to his sermons,” said Kroll. “I would then challenge myself and turn those notes into poems. Writing was a way to get my emotions out, a way to heal from hurt and pain. My book’s poems were created to remind the readers that all things are possible through Christ when we believe.”
The author suggests that her book of poetry is read as a daily devotional. She also recommends that the book be presented as a thoughtful gift for any young adult who is experiencing challenging times.
