The Praying Heart
Poetry & Prayer
by Joann Salerno Nelander
About the Book
My poetry begins and ends with prayer. Jesus, His redeeming Death on the Cross, and my trust in God's desire to draw us ever closer to Him in Holy Love, is at the heart of my desire to share these words. I believe that the heart that prays gives glory to God.
I am a wife, a mother, a graduate of the Mount Sinai Hospital School of Nursing in NYC. I am an artist, a photographer (Photo-Jo/smugmug ), a writer, blogger (lionessblog.com) and poet. I am a Roman Catholic, grateful for the blessing of faith and in awe of God's creation. The daily bread of the Eucharist keep me fed and focused, aware of God’s presence. My writing is my outreach,small and dependent on God to make the difference.
