Author/Artist Review

Author: Cheryl Ricker
Located in: Rochester, MN
Submitted: August 24, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a prize-winning poet who resides in southeast Minnesota with my husband and two sons. Born and raised in Canada, I graduated from York University in Toronto with a degree in Creative Writing. In addition to writing, I like watercolor painting, acting, singing, and dancing around the house with my kids. They laugh at me because I like to write while walking on my treadmill. I've always been passionate about writing and drawing people closer to God. I'm overjoyed that God opened door after door so I could do both in the form of this life-changing Zondervan gift book!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Five years ago I started writing poetry for a young lady who was dying of cancer. I entered her world and captured her raw emotions on paper as well as God's loving response to her pain. Once I saw how much it helped her and her husband, I wanted to help others. Having survived a lot of grief myself, I wanted to shed light on the difficult question: "Why would a good and loving God allow this bad thing to happen to His children?" Knowing that God's presence brings the ultimate comfort, I wanted readers to experience Him in a fresh way while reading. I also wanted to craft a gift book where thought-provoking quotes and Scripture promises combine with sensitive poetry to reach the mind, spirit and heart. A lot of times a greeting card doesn't quite cut it. I wanted to give something more. Something light 'n tight, but deep and meaningful. Life-changing!

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  By presenting over forty essential hope-related topics, I know readers will: • Be at peace that God is helping their suffering loved ones, • Learn to trust God and find inner healing, • Be softened by Christ’s compelling explanations of life, • Desire heaven, and be assured that it’s their eternal destination, and • Enjoy a non-threatening gift they can easily share with others. Soothing words from Christ’s point of view dispel disillusionment, giving readers reason to trust God’s sovereignty, mystery, and perfect timing. When poetry is matched with the Bible’s most comforting Scriptures, readers are splashed with reassuring truth and direction. The poetry and Scriptures are seamlessly interwoven with quotes from respected Christian leaders, surrounding readers with a cloud of witnesses on this healing journey that crescendos with the splendor of heaven.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  A Friend in the Storm has been therapeutic for me. As I've meditated on God's truth, powerful imagery, and soothing songs of hope, I've felt more peaceful about my day, more confident that no matter what happens, God will be there to strengthen and help me through.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I’m inspired by evangelists like Billy Graham. He doesn’t care what others think or say about Him because He’s out to please the King of kings. That’s the kind of evangelist I want to be. A Friend in the Storm makes it easier for people to share their faith in an effective, but non-threatening way.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I want readers to know that God hasn’t forgotten them. He feels what they feel. He’s holding them. He’s not going to waste their pain. He’s crazy about them. It’s probably best illustrated by the poem, You. You You’re forever on My mind And in your presence I rejoice; Singing out your name with angels, All your sweetness fills My voice. Keeping loved ones in My keeping, I embrace a constant calm. Whole and holy, I will hold you, ever-after in My palm.
