From the hardest moments of letting go of something truly loved to the gentlest times of exceeding joy, Truth and Life is an inspirational book of poems that will bring the reader to grips with life's cascading circumstances to reveal the rainbow of hope and joy behind the fall. In spite of what one faces, there is joy to be found, tears to be shed, and laughter to be regained. The pure simple message this book seeks to uphold is: no matter what the situation is there is comfort in the Spirit of Truth. The author of the book Truth and Life is known as Melissa Leigh Chandler. Born in 1987, Melissa has lived her whole life in Moorpark, California. Her real talent and love for poetry became apparent in Middle School when she wrote a delicious poem entitled Hungry?. Melissa has gained her inspiration for her works of art through the beauty of nature, personal outlooks on life, as well as her deep relationship with Jesus Christ. With this book, she hopes to send a message of encouragement to a sometimes-hopeless world.
