San Diego, CA – WEBWIRE

“It’s a refreshingly simple, surprisingly practical, step-by-step aid in reflecting on the author’s poem by the same name, but also on the reader’s personal understanding of his/her faith in Christ.” - Reverend Scott Meyer

Pamela Hollrah-Asleson is an RN who has experienced personal struggles and witnessed much suffering. For strength, she drew on her Christian faith and embraced the concept of Jesus sharing in the burden of suffering and grief, assuring her that she was never alone. This inspired her to use poetry as her word craft to express the emotions and publish her poems as a series of devotionals exploring God touching our humanity. She was even able to get an exhibit spot for her book at the LATFOB 2023.

The 2023 L.A. Times Festival of Books was an exciting opportunity for many recently published poets to share their work. For many poets, to share their verse is to share much of their life and heart, revealing how they view the world.

The journey of poet Pamela K.C. Hollrah-Asleson has been journaled through her poetry. Reflecting on her struggles with depression, love, and loss, her career as an RN, she has been privileged to work with and help others suffering. Our Soldiers are close to her heart, having been raised in a career military family, being a veteran’s mother and currently supporting our troops. Pam retired from a Federal prison hospital and volunteers for jails and community groups.

Through it all, she has a strong foundation in her Christian faith. She shares the details of her faith journey through poetry in her “Poet’s Heart, God’s Gift” books, specifically book 1 in this series: “Yoked With Christ.” With the help of ReadersMagnet, a book marketing and self-publishing company, she even gained an exhibit spot for this book during the L.A. Times Festival of Books.

The book has already earned plenty of praise from fellow members of her church and other Christian readers. For instance, local Reverend Scott Meyer of Trinity and Our Savior’s Lutheran Parish wrote, “It’s a refreshingly simple, surprisingly practical, step-by-step aid in reflecting on the author’s poem by the same name, but also on the reader’s personal understanding of his/her faith in Christ.”

Christian and active Toastmaster Brian Hinton, DTM also wrote, “Pam Hollrah-Asleson has created a very unique and heartfelt poem that intrigued my interest right away. The devotional is thought-provoking. I enjoyed the exercises throughout. I recommend ’Yoked With Christ’ to any Christian. It helped me organize my own thoughts in my current struggle.”

The book was further received positively by readers practicing psychology. According to Stanley R. Miller, Psy D, LP, “Ms. Hollrah-Asleson has created a devotional/workbook for those who choose to be hitched together with the divine bearer of burdens, who ‘pulls alongside us,’ so that we might know that we are never alone and can persevere as well.”

Today, Hollrah-Asleson continues to use her talent with words to inspire others, be it through poetry as well as her work as a speaker and Toastmaster. She provides keynotes and workshop weekends based on her Poet’s Heart God’s Gift poetry, Victim2Victor process, and Journaling the Journey themes.

In the foreword for the book, her fellow club member Herve Idjidina said, “If you are looking for comfort, hope, and the assurance that you are never alone in your life challenges, grab this book and read it. The poem along with the deep-thinking exercises offered by the author will positively change your perspectives about life and will softly connect you to the powerful and never-ending presence of Jesus Christ in your life.”

“Poet’s Heart, God’s Gift presents book1: Yoked With Christ” is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Pamela KC Hollrah-Asleson for more information check her website
