Emonetry-a mellow place-is a book filled with words of comfort for the wounded heart, the suffering soul racked with pain, the troubled spirit caught in the murky mire of grief and sorrow. Author Larry D. Burns identifies with those who hurt. A lonely victim of child abuse and a recent cancer survivor, Larry now spreads God's words of healing through his testimony of forgiveness and through his work with troubled youth. His words of empathy in Emonetry, a compilation of poetry, make it easier for others to throw away their emotional crutches. This book helps build compassion, courage, and renewed strength in those who have suffered heartache, sickness, or disaster. Larry says his vision is to help rebuild the human spirit with faith and hope and to renew hearts of peace. "No matter whom you are or where you are, trust in God through the good times and bad. By the grace of God I made it through and so can you." Larry D. Burns used child abuse as a crutch, until God gave him the ability to forgive his abusers. Now he works with troubled youth, sharing God's plan of forgiveness and is fighting to better the world. Diagnosed with cancer eight years ago, doctors said he would live only five years. Larry loves old cars, animals, playing pool, and discussing the Bible. He's been writing to encourage and comfort since the age of six.
