Julie Anshasi Poetry...

Julie's poetry is remarkable. Her book, Broken, takes us on a journey through feelings of loss and despair and brings us to the very foot of the cross of Jesus Christ, where we can lay those burdens down and find new life and hope.

For anyone suffering loss, whether physical or emotional, these touching and encouraging poems offer help and direction, in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

From one injured, searching soul to another, the words of these poems offer solace and grace that only God can provide to us. Rest in Him. 

You will find poems that describe feelings of darkness and loss, pain and frustration, which are poured out to God like one of the old Psalms, and which end with joy and release in the Lord.

One of my favorite poems "Blue, gray, black" starts this way:

Midnight sky - 
Blue, gray, black,
Obscures the One Who made it.
You are there in the silence,
When all my prayers have faded.

and concludes..

But, You are always there,
Covered in the blue, gray, black.
Even if i turn my back - 
You are there.

Spiritual Exhaustion

Winner of the 2022 Christian Illumination Book Awards Silver Medal. Have you been following Jesus Christ for one year?  Ten years?  Forty years?  Do you sometimes feel that you cannot take another step?  Do you feel that no one truly understands you and what you are going through?

Spiritual exhaustion is something experienced by many Christians, but rarely discussed.  For many, life becomes an endless treadmill of going to church, praying, reading the Bible, and doing good works, with little to no visible result. 

This book is a must-read for the honest believer who wants to follow Jesus yet is clinging to the end of his rope.

Winter in Eden

Winter in Eden ~ When your heart is cold toward God

by Julie Anshasi

Winner of the 2022 Christian Illumination Book Awards Bronze Medal.  This book is a cautionary tale of the sin that so easily besets believers.  Disappointment, disobedience to the Holy Spirit, and unforgiveness can lead to a cold heart, which causes distance to form between the Creator and His creation.  Julie Anshasi explains how Christians must learn to “fight the good fight” and endure until the end, turning to Him daily to receive strength and renewal, so that every believer’s heart will remain on fire for Him.

Julie has released a children's book (for ages 0-4) called Some Things are Hot! Some Things are Not!  A delightful book that helps very young children understand that some items they encounter are safe to touch, while others are not.

Children are warned about hot things such as candles, curling irons, grills, and logs on a fire.  There are also some delightful mentions of how hot chocolate and even banana bread can be too hot to eat (or touch) until they cool off a little. 

Enjoy this well-illustrated and engaging book with your toddler or young child.  And learn that Some Things are HOT! and Some Things are NOT!

On a Personal Note...

I have known Julia ("Julie") for a long time. Her life and work are a testament to her faith in God and to His provision. She truly trusts Him and seeks to serve Him. Her greatest desire with her writings is to honor God and to bring Him glory.

I hope that you will consider purchasing one of Julie's lovely books. You can find them all at her website: 

Thank you for considering Julie's books and for helping support her work.

God bless you,
