Author has written 16 stories for Romance, Religion, Haiku, War, Friendship, and Nature.

I have graduate degrees in English and Humanities. I've also taught university-level composition and literature. My business portfolio is clippings.me/kelleykent.

I'm an amateur poet. I've had just one creative writing class, but my writing preference is editorials. After telling God I couldn’t do this and that, I realized I was limiting him through unbelief and reliance on natural ability. One day I said, "I can’t but God can. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13). Then God gave me a word: distill. "Let my teaching drop as the rain, my speech distill as the dew, as raindrops on the tender herb, and as showers on the grass" (Deuteronomy 32:1-2). When God distills his Word as dew and rain, it’s softened and purified. Distilling something is like capturing its essence and giving it form. God answered my request with poetry!
