Children Are a Kindred Spirit
by Judy Riedl

Sometimes a different perspective on life is achieved at the most unexpected times. In this instance, it is the birth of a grandchild that has had a significant impact on Judy Riedl’s life. From witnessing the tremendous physical, mental, and emotional changes of her first grandson during his first few years of life to her response to them – and ultimately her understanding of them and the insight she gained as a result - Riedl has used this life experience to reevaluate the importance of a loving adult in a child’s life.

Patience, understanding, wisdom, and love are the major themes of Riedl’s poems, and all of the poems serve as a gentle reminder for adults to savor the early years and to gain a better understanding of the weight they hold when it comes to the emotional and spiritual growth of our children.

Finding the opportunity to nourish the mind, the body, and the spirit of a child takes on a whole new meaning in the eyes of Riedl, and her book of poems celebrate this opportunity with a refreshing perspective and an understanding of one of life’s most important treasures: the kindred spirits of children.
