Author Biography

I used to bottle up all my emotions and problems, until I was finally able to grab my pen and notebook and let them explode all over the paper. I was being plagued by relationship issues, money issues and all kinds of other plagues.

I wouldn’t even begin anything because I already foresaw my defeat. I was being eaten alive by the pests of life. I would let my hardships keep me down for so long that I had no clue how to escape this unhealthy mindset buzzing in between my ears.

The more I grew in my relationship with God, the more I was able to see that for every problem I could face, God was the prescription. I learned that when He sent His Word to heal us, it was for any and every condition of the human spirit—body, mind, and soul.

In the process of going through many of the trials I write about in this book and finding the Biblical solutions for exterminating them, I’ve learned to trust God more and get closer to living the way He wants me to live. My burdens have dropped, and a joy and peace I hadn’t experienced before, now fills me.

I pray that reading this book will help you through whatever you’re facing. And I hope that when your plaguing problems are conquered and you are victorious, you will lead others to the same prescription: the saving power of the Savior.

Poetic Prescriptions For Plaguing Problems: Biblical Remedies For When Life Bites is a work of inspirational poetry centered on the theme of Christianity and seeking God and was penned by author Katherine Norland. The collection of Bible-inspired and infused verses is split into four sections, each of which takes readers through a different area of solving the problems and sense of emptiness in their lives. From The Plague to Aware, and onto Combat and Eradicate, problems are viewed as locusts to be controlled, and the solutions come from self-help techniques and daily practices to allow the calming influence of God into your life.

Author Katherine Norland presents a truly fantastic look at the Christian approach to self-help in her well organized and interesting collection of verses. There is also a lot of prose work for guidance, particularly in the opening section, where the problems of life are laid out with confident narration and clear, easy to follow guidance points. When the verses begin, they are easily absorbed and written with the same comforting and confident style that the Bible and Prayer Books themselves often possess. The development and connection to the Bible itself is well thought out, and it’s clear that Norland herself knows her intertextuality very well. Overall, Poetic Prescriptions For Plaguing Problems: Biblical Remedies For When Life Bites will certainly reward those who have faith and seek the solace of God’s teachings in their overcoming of fear, addiction, depression, and other issues, but there is also much hope and comfort for the less religious in this very effective volume.
