Poetic Inspiration is a compilation of spiritual and schematic messages of encouragement and empowerment harnessed in the rhythmic and imaginative form of literary communication known as acrostic poetry. You will experience and enjoy both acrostic and non-acrostic poetry that speaks to the heart. Prepare yourself to be inspired from A – Z; laugh, be challenged, humbled, and shed tears of joy. The simplicity, comfort and intimacy within each page will build, restore and strengthen your faith to rely fully and unapologetically on the promises, power, omnipresence, and protection of the Everlasting and Living God. He is Poetic Inspiration and the Answer to everything in our lives. May these poems lift your spirit with joy and confidence to draw closer to God, share His truth, and tender the countenance of your smile to reflect the awesome brilliance of the Master’s Love!
Gwendolyn D. Baker was born in Montgomery, Alabama and raised in Buffalo, New York. She became intrigued with the acrostic strategy of poetry as a 5th grader and continues to embrace this style in her writing today. Her educational and career opportunities include: Buffalo East High School, Buffalo State College, MarJon School of Cosmetology, Northeastern Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, WBLK 93.7 FM, and Oakwood College/University.
Coupled with her love for God, who has brought her over every mountain of personal obstacles, and with her scrupulous passion to inspire others, she celebrates how God has blessed her to be a blessing and make a difference in the lives of so many through writing. She appreciates that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
Gwen is retired and resides in Tonawanda, New York, and is grateful for her beautiful three adult daughters, seven grandchildren and one great-grandson.
