Join me in welcoming Lisa C. Miller to Highlighted Author.
Lisa C. Miller is an author of inspirational poetry. Through her writing she seeks to uplift others. She’s with us this week sharing her latest title, Inspirations from Heaven’s Gate.
I live in the beautiful state of Alaska with my family where the spirits of animals and men roam free. I am married to a wonderful man and we have three children and foster girls who bring us joy. I am currently a full-time college student and I write inspirational poetry.
I enjoy reading, writing, blogging, walking, family, social networking, scrap booking and photography.
I started out in a military family. My dad joined the Air Force when I was little so the world has been my playground. It is where I learned to get along with other people and accept myself.
What books do you have out?
I have published two books so far, Godly Inspirations for the Troubled Soul and Inspirations from Heaven’s Gate. Both are books of poetry with bible verses sprinkled within. They can be found on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
What do you hope to accomplish through writing?
I am able, through the help of The Holy Spirit, to write about the beauty and simplicity of life. Through words I want to reveal the beauty of Christ to the broken and lost spirits of humanity. Through pouring out my heart and tears and trying to be transparent I want to encourage people to see we are in this together.
When did you decide to be a writer and why?
I am very comfortable with books and pens and paper. I sometimes feel like I was born with a pencil in my hand and I started writing at six years old and it has just expanded from there. I have never passed a library or used bookstore that I haven’t liked. As you can tell I am very chatty about my life, books and writing.
Go right ahead and be as chatty as you like. *smile*
I am a Christian lady who comes from a Christian background and family. I came to know the Lord on a personal level when I was 17 years old. Since then I have been on a quest to learn more about Him and myself. On my journey I have come to realize my purpose in life is to write what is on God’s heart and encourage the broken and lost souls of humanity with it.
Here are two quotes I think sum up my writing life: “I am a little pencil in the hand of writing God who is sending out a love letter to the world” by Mother Teresa and “Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart” by William Wordsworth.
Inspirations from Heaven’s Gate
This is book of poetry with bible verses sprinkled throughout the book. Written with the help of the whispered power of the Holy Spirit and daily guidance of the Lord. I do my best to listen to for the Lord’s instructions on a daily basis and write what is put on my heart to share with the broken and lost souls of humanity to help them with their daily struggles.
Once someone starts a life of prayer they are changed forever.
There is no going back.
The insights gained from the world around them are so powerful it is consuming.
When you have a life of prayer you have a huge responsibility for those around you.
Prayer is the first line of defense for the heart and soul.
Otherwise they are left bruised and bleeding on the side of life’s highway.
Prayer is to the soul what oxygen is to the heart life.
Whether we realize it or not we are actually comforted in the knowledge that someone
We hold dear those who hold us up to the throne of heaven.
They care for us so deeply that they will seek daily solitude to strengthen their own relationship with the Lord.
In doing so they touch heaven for us.
Our lives become more clear and focused.
Throughout their lives they have learned to slip their hands into the Fathers hand.
They help us to not drown in our daily struggles.
Our family, friends, and neighbors uplift our concerns as much as possible.
Prayer will bring healing & strength to those who are weary.
God’s love will flow from your heart to theirs to show that they are highly treasured.
His love has supernatural power and will bring life to those who honor Him.
Knowing the Father is always available.
It is a beautiful gift He bestows upon us.
“For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved & those who are perishing.” 2 cor. 2:15 (niv)
