David grew up in a small fishing village in rural South Plymouth, Massachusetts. There he learned to appreciate nature while lobstering with his brother, both of pre-teen years. Much later at age 45, through a series of choices and consequences, he was led to God. Receiving Jesus, he began the process of growing and changing. Bible studies and writing poetry became a means of knowing scripture and renewing the mind. Richly blessed in the writing and painting for this book, we pray you are blessed by them. Carole is a lifelong resident of Massachusetts, raising 3 sons in the historic town of Plymouth. Her fascination with painting began later in life with the desire to paint the beauty of God's creation. Active in the local art community, Carole is an award winning artist who paints, teaches and exhibits. Her artwork can be found in galleries and private collections across the nation and in Europe.
