"Reflections From My Heart" is a book that is exactly what the title implies. It is a collection of poems, some put to music, that I have written over the years, that allow the reader to see into my heart and know how God, Family, Friends, Circumstances and Life in General have moved my heart. In the reading of this book, may you come to know the importance of God, Family, Friends, Circumstances and Life in General and to listen to your heart, and to share your heart with others.
