The wait is over. Christian poet/author Brenda G. Wilson Billings’ book of spiritual poetry is now available. Her Nashville, Tenn. ties may vary but publishing with the blessings of (the Nashville based) Bishop Calvin C. Barlow, Jr. certainly places a feather in her proverbial cap.
“If we are to be successful in this life, we must network and meet other success oriented, like minded people. That is how I met Mrs. Brenda G. Wilson Billings. She is both a friend and a vested colleague,” said Bishop Barlow.
Each poem and passage in the book is even more captivating than the last one read. They will allow the reader to draw strength and apply the well-crafted words to their own real life scenarios. Whether the poet/author is speaking about the joy and beauty of God’s scenic greenery or weathering a storm, it all makes a difference in recognizing his grace and mercy. Every chapter has a specific meaning and purpose. Generally poetry has its own classification and charted genre, but these certainly stand alone.
Brenda G. Wilson Billings is a talented woman of God, who shares her gifts to bless and enlighten her readers and followers. Based in Detroit, Michigan she wrote and recited her first poem in the sixth grade. In 1982, she started recording her poems. She attended and graduated from Northwestern High School, and attended Wayne State University.
She is known in the city of Detroit as a poet and a heartfelt, frequent speaker for women’s ministries and various groups. Both she and her husband Kevin are members of Morning View Missionary Baptist Church, also in Detroit.
An age-old adage states: “good writers are born and some are even extend from a long line of literary talent.” Brenda G. Wilson Billings’ lineage hails from Rev. Samuel H. Hairston, a pastor, principal, teacher and poet.
Clearly, Brenda G. Wilson Billings has long since lived up to her proud heritage and her new book reflects this and more.
When she isn’t writing or taking part in other valuable ministries, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. A short list of Billings cherished family includes: parents, Rev. and Mrs. J. C. Barnes; brothers Michael Barnes and Rev. Dr. Myron D. Barnes; son, James Barnes; granddaughter Jasha Barnes; and sister-in-laws Ollie and Sharon Halls.
Pride in penmanship is indeed a blessing and this new book is a ‘must read.’
