Iesha Barnes is prophetically poetic as she shares her experiences in "A Long Journey with God." The Collection is compiled of forty poems written throughout her life starting from age 9. Flowing from her heart off multiple journal pages, this first debut comes forth as she was prompted by God to share. Through pain, sorrow, depression, low self- esteem, rejection, anger, bitterness, loss, and love found, readers will be able to relate to the lines in this book. Her words will pull you into moments of life's struggles, love life complexities, and growing in faith. It is her prayer, that others will reflect on the lessons they have also learned in life and acknowledge that God's hand and his grace has been present all the time. She hopes that the readers will benefit from her experiences in life and the relationship she has with Jesus Christ. Witness how her poetry goes from being a safe haven to becoming the means of declaring Christ as her refuge. Iesha Barnes is a multi-talented author, singer, and dancer.
