About Family Reunion (cover copy)
“Violet Nesdoly — International Christian Poet Laureate (2006-2008) — exemplifies the melding of poet and Christian believer. As poet, her wordcraft directs our thoughts, her images probe our emotions. As Christian, her themes direct us deftly toward the divine.”
- Nathan Harms, Utmost Christian Writers Foundation
“Nesdoly’s refreshing vision of God and belief in the power of language to enrich the intelligent reader lifts this collection above the ordinary. Reading her work feels like the sudden surprise of a rush of cool mountain air. You feel her pleasure as she writes.”
- Lora Zill, editor, Time of Singing
“Violet Nesdoly unfolds the crumpled mysteries of life in words that hum, that taste like peach nights and burst in the colours of small, significant things. Her poetry is salvation that soars on ‘Spirit wings.’”
- Maureen Weber, associated editor, Prairie Messenger

About Calendar (cover copy)
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven…”
Calendar contains the poetry of those times: birth and death, spring and fall, laughter and crying, beginning and ending.
Some of these poems have won awards. Many were previously published in places like Prairie Messenger, Time of Singing, and Utmost Christian Writers.
