Author Karen Joy Sharp shares poems that will provoke thought and move readers to reflect on their walk with Christ.
Queensland, Australia (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
In John 16:4, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” This powerful statement reminds believers about the salvation they will find in Christ if they follow in His footsteps. Inspired by this, author Karen Joy Sharp shares Nor by Might Nor by Power but by My Spirit, a poetry book made available through Xlibris.
This collection of poems is divided into four parts: “The Way”, “The Truth”, “The Life” and the “The Fruits”.
The first three explores Jesus being the way, the truth, and the life, while the fourth explores the fruits or rewards of unwavering faith. Sharp pens poetry that is often short, yet still meaningful, proving the adage that “less is more.” She utilizes rhyme to get her message across readers, sharing spiritual insights that will inspire and rejuvenate their faith.
A stirring read, Nor by Might Nor by Power but by My Spirit will provoke thought and move readers to reflect on where they are in their walk with Christ.

About the Author
Karen Joy Sharp was born and bred in Mackay, graced with a privileged upbringing, attended Sunday school, got her primary education at Central State School and her senior education at Our Lady of Mercy. She travelled overseas—to England and Israel—at the tender age of 17. She has been married twice, divorced, and now separated with a 20-year-old son, Julian Hewat. Her work places has taken her to explore such glamorous places and names as Dames and Dandies, Splendiferous, Great Keppel Island, Lindeman Island, and The Daily Mercury. She has also worked on a Kibbutz-picking dates and in a communal living state in Isreal. She had a story published in the Woman’s Day in 2001. The author discovered she had an extended family, a biological family, consisting of three other sisters, one she practically grew up with.
Her first real experience with the Lord and Saviour was in Regents Park in London. Since then, she gave herLife to the Lord and served in Pauls Uniting Church Mackay as Elder, Wedding Officer, Presbytry Representative under the Reverend Les Howard, who is now deceased. Her experiences have given her a personal witness to the harsh reality this world can inflict on the people, and thus, given her a penchant in life to see a moral stand taken against immorality, the corruption, the great cover ups, the protection of the rich, truths that are hidden among lies, deceits, bureaucratic red tape etc.
The author shares, “If we follow the law of the land, when the law of the land contradicts the moral laws of humanity then we are indeed, all doomed. I am strong in the belief that God, has it all under control and my Faith continues to grow day by day by day.”
