Early Praise for Lyrical Verses
Rev. Dorian Mendez-Vaz stated, “The book surveys our understanding of the word of God by challenging us to think constantly on things that are good and perfect gifts of grace. Verse by verse Carroll takes us on a journey of exploration and adulation for the One who was sent to love us.”
Nikko LaSpiel Evans exclaimed, “Lyrical Verses for the Soul is a heartfelt collection of original poems that the entire family can enjoy. The collection serves as reminders of God’s abundant grace and reassurance of his unfailing love. Through his writing readers gain a sense of Carroll’s selfless faith in Christ.”
Donald has continued to use poetry and writing as an outlet for self-expression and to praise the Lord. Over the years Donald has composed numerous poems related to praise and worship. Both his older and newer poems will appear in his first collection of poetry.
