Drawing from a personal relationship with God, His holy Word, as well as personal insights and experience, Kathryn A. Strawn blends poetic verse with inspirational scripture to paint a radiant picture of the hope we have in Christ Jesus. Take a stroll through Hope's Garden and experience the beauty of God's design, a place where waters of forgiveness flow, allowing grace and truth to grow side by side with love and mercy. Born in Fresno, California, in 1961, Kathryn A. Strawn began her writing career around the age of 6, typing poems and short stories on her grandfather's old, Underwood FIVE, manual typewriter. That typewriter now sits in her home, in Cottonwood, California. She and her husband recently moved to Cottonwood from Burney, California, where they lived for the past fourteen years. They have two grown children and look forward to someday spoiling many grandchildren.
