About Gwendolyn Faye’s Poetic Devotional:
Gwendolyn Faye has penned a poetic devotional, “Mystery Solved“, based on her first collection of poetry, “The Fine Art of Caring”. This devotional chronicles her journey to becoming a poet at the age of 41 and leads readers through their own personal, 40-day journey to answer four questions:
- Who do you think you are?
- What is in your hand?
- What is this dream?
- Why sit there until you die?
Soothing. Breathtaking. Riveting. These are just a few of the words used to describe Gwendolyn Faye. A poetic neophyte, “The Fine Art of Caring” is her first collection of poetry, and “Let Me Explain” is its soundtrack. She calls it a lyrical profile of her life of love. In it, you will find tributes to her family, her friends, her loves and her God. Each piece leads the reader through a personal, yet universal, experience of and quest for love in its many forms. The “Mystery Solved” devotional tells her story and helps you write yours.
Gwendolyn Faye has performed in Georgia, Alaska, and Washington where she was a part of the Speak Your Soul poetry group. She is also the creator of “Poetry in Motion”, a workshop and movement to inspire young people to read and write poetry. It was originally conducted for the Anchorage School District in Anchorage, Alaska. “Poetry in Motion Interactive” is a practical and fun tool for parents and educators. Gwendolyn Faye is committed to cultivating a love of the arts and igniting a spark of creativity in children of all ages.
Author’s Note About the Cover Art
For over three decades I have secretly longed for a corner where I could paint “just because”. This self-portrait is the one shred of evidence that I ever painted at all. One morning, after nearly a decade on my home office wall, I noticed it and realized that all that time it had been there waiting. Waiting for me to rediscover the heart of the girl that I was then. Like the art that is my life, it is raw and imperfect. – Gwendolyn Faye
