Welcome To My Blog

My name is Rhonda Brown.

Please come by often and visit me at my Poet Monk corner.

Be sure to bring a cup of coffee and sit a spell.

Make yourself comfortable.

I have many poems and stories to share with you.

I would love to hear your comment at the bottom of each blog post.

It is a blessing to share the gift God has given to me with everyone.

Create Prayer Triggers in Your Life

Create Prayer Triggers in Your Life

If you aren’t familiar with prayer triggers, let me fill you in a little. There’s nothing complicated about it. A prayer trigger can be any physical item, a song, a place, a routine event—whatever– that you have determined will remind you of a particular person or issue for which you wish to pray, and prompts you to pray for them right at that moment.

Attitude of Gratitude

Attitude of Gratitude

A time when hopefully we take some time to assess the blessings that have been poured out on us, and what God calls us to do with them, which is to share them with others.

Praying a Poem Back to God

Praying a Poem Back to God

Praying a Poem Back to God I read an article awhile back (I can’t find it now and have no recollection of source or author) which included some mention or discussion of Christian poets, and pointed out that a Christian poet can (and should) pray her poems  back to...

When Marriage Lasts

When Marriage Lasts

John Tarr interviews Rhonda Brown, a Christian Poet. John and Rhonda talk about Christian marriage. Rhonda and her husband just celebrated their 50th anniversary so we talked about what it is like to be married that long and the ups and downs of being married to someone over that period of time.

Prayer On My Mind

Prayer On My Mind

The Word Became Flesh

The Word Became Flesh

The Word Became Flesh The Incarnation is the wonderful, amazing, supernatural event that is at the center of Christmas. I posted articles by a couple of different people discussing the Incarnation. Here are the links.    “…the first thing to know about Christmas is...

Making Things Again

Patterns for Christian Prayer

Patterns for Christian Prayer

Over the years, prayer seems to be one of the things the Lord has worked the hardest to teach me. One of the things I have learned is that the Bible is the best prayer book.

Resurrection a Cosmic Event

Resurrection a Cosmic Event

Can you imagine what it was like to see Jesus crucified, to witness that agonizing death, and then to experience the incredible invasion of the supernatural that was his resurrection?

Detour Through Grief

Detour Through Grief

Many of us are having to dig deep for words to express what is going on in our hearts. Here’s what emerged for me. I hope it speaks for other hearts as well.

Listening to Christmas Carols

Listening to Christmas Carols

“Listening to Christmas Carols” are thoughts and a poem by poet Rhonda Brown. It’s hard to name a favorite, but if I were pressed it would probably be “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing.” It captures so much about the Incarnation and why Jesus came.

Dance Practice

Dance Practice

My friend Patty invited me to come with her to the worship time at a Messianic congregation down in Chandler. A bonus element was getting to watch the practice time of the Messianic dance group she participates in.
