Best Selling Must Read

Conversations with the Heart and Soul is filled with thought provoking, vivid poems that are religiously, socially and politically charged. This book is a must read for poetry and non-poetry lovers.

Conversations with the Heart and Soul is a book that gives hope, promotes spiritual healing, and encourages love of self, others and The Great I Am, yet exposes the harsh reality of injustice, sexism, racism, political propaganda, violence, loss and the painful suffering our youth endures through cultural practices which has become an ungodly norm. Conversations with the Heart and Soul inspires its readers to take a deep look at what they can do within their own space to have a positive impact on their personal life and within society. 

Author Lacey Odoms is a Louisianan who consistently uses her poetry as a tool to help her readers and herself work toward a heightened social and spiritual awareness and a deeper understanding of life—the choices we make, the things we say, the actions we take, the things we leave unsaid and undone and how the human experience is interconnected.

Heart and Soul is a powerful debut in poetry. Lacey Odoms delivers a collection that inspires and stirs us. The poems are uniquely from a young black woman's perspective - her trials, her hopes, and her desire for a better world. This poetry makes us think, but it also makes us smile and feel thankful to Odoms for being so courageous with her words. As the title suggests, Odoms writes from somewhere deep inside her "heart and soul." Keep an eye out for future collections; this poet has a voice that needs to be heard.
