Hello and Welcome 


                                     About Me

      My name is Valerie Pruitt and am sometimes called Marina Dawn, why?   

             I will tell you some day or perhaps it will all be revealed in heaven

                     I am a Christian poet  who desires to share God’s hope and truths

                                 In language we all can understand.

My story


Raised in a God fearing and honoring family of faith I strode out to meet the world

 then Life happened, for the rain falls on the just and the unjust.

After being almost killed and abandoned by my ex husband with 2 young children on my hands,

My spirit broke ,I lost my faith, and good girl went bad.

I stumbled in the dark for several years yearning for something brighter , something more.

I started writing what was essentially prayers for hope, for deliverance .

When  I returned broken to my faith ,I found God had much more planned for my life .

 For in his grace he brought me a loving man and opened doors for others to be blessed by his story in my life .


My Faith

 I know  God still speaks today , his words still have beauty, form , poetry  that seeks to reach our hearts .

I believe that truth does not need to be dressed up in flowery skirts, to still be relevant today.

 We can obtain salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and acceptance of his work on the cross for us.

 God is a God of restoration  and a bruised reed he will not despise .He is the God of Hope.

Searching ,we can all find our identity and purpose through him .


My poetry


                  I write about life , it’s ups and downs

In simple poetic lines I speak of our humanity and the many issues we encounter

    For there are days  we all struggle , we fall.

Moments when our faith is shaken and we think we cannot go on


                                                       BUT GOD

        Wherever you are in your life and your walk I pray that your hope will not fail

                                            Your head will be lifted

                  You will go on  renewed , so stay a while be blessed.
