ABOUT THE BOOK: In Jeremiah 29:11 God says, "For I know the plans I have for you-plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Inspired through her quiet times alone with God as well as life's everyday trials and triumphs, Author Mary D. Wasson has penned a collection of poetry that will humble you, move you, encourage you, and remind you that in all things and at all times, your heavenly Father (the Potter) is molding you (the clay) into His masterpiece. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Reared by a single, Christian, Guatemalan mother, author Mary D. Wasson's childhood was characterized by a strong Christian influence. In her teens, her mother married a man whom Mary considers her real father. Following her college graduation and an almost twenty-year career, God breathed into Mary's life the gift of writing. In addition to the poetic expressions of love for her heavenly Father found here in The Potter's Hand Poetry, Mary is also writing a book about her mother's life-particularly, her founding of a mission in Guatemala with which Mary and her family are actively involved. Mary D. Wasson lives in Hernando, Mississippi, with her husband, Mark, and their children, Ethan and Mia Faith.
