Tender Poems for Tough Times
by Ken Lievers

We all go through tough times. Feelings and emotions run high, thoughts and questions overwhelm us, and we can’t see past the present moment. But the followers of Jesus Christ can work through these tough times differently than the world around them.

Tender Poems for Tough Times is a collection of Christian poetry written over a twenty-five-year period. The poems can provide a portrayal of current reality, a phrase that resonates, or a key verse of Scripture that touches readers in a tender way and fixes their gaze on their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His presence and promises.

Organized alphabetically, topics range from aging to hopelessness to sin, and the poems are written in a variety of formats. A relevant and inspiring offering, Tender Poems for Tough Times will be a blessing and encouragement to Christians everywhere.

Ken Lievers received a M.Sc. in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Alberta in 1971. He spent his career with Agriculture and Agr-Food Canada’s Research Branch, retiring in 2003. His experiences in the working world, church leadership, raising a family, and national and international travel taught him much about working through tough times as a Christian. On many occasions, he served as pulpit supply for churches in Ontario and Alberta. His hobbies include fishing in cottage country, Ontario, travelling with Friendship Force, and ongoing involvement with Toastmasters.

Ken lives in Lethbridge, Alberta with his wife of forty-eight years, Barb. Their son and his family live in Sudbury, Ontario, and their daughter also lives in Lethbridge.
