Synopsis: Broken and cracked...scabbed and bleeding… we all need to know that there is purpose to our life’s journey.

As you read and share in the author’s true life journey, which is the inspiration behind, this wonderful heart-rending and heart-warming collection of poems. More
"Her words revealed to me a Carmen whose experience, often difficult and filled with pain, has evolved her into a wise and understanding sister in this journey we call Life. “Have you ever cried without shedding a tear?” “Have you ever cried,wanting to pray…?” These lines will strike a chord in any woman who has loved a parent, joined with a spouse, and birthed a child. Carmen has reached deep into her past to find her self, and inspires other women to do the same. She shows us we are more than the sum of our roles as daughter, spouse and mother. Her poems are revealing; they are poignant; they are spirit-filled. Read them and you will find a glimpse of yourself in them. They will transport you to a place where, perhaps, you can find respite and solace in the loving arms of our God." -Susan Rawson, 5/5 stars.
"An inspired collection of poetry. I could feel the sun, the flutter of butterfly wings, smell the tropical fruit. Many of the poems brought back memories of my grandparents and my times as a vacationing at their home in Puerto Rico. The poems illicit emotions from deep within. I cried with Carmen’s pain, laughed and smiled at happy times. There is always an underpinning of wonder and searching within the poems and it suggests the journey of a woman to find herself, in the roles of daughter, mom, woman, child of God and the many hats we as women wear. I can very much relate to these currents as they swell, crest and fall. From Conversations of the Heart: From Pain to Promise is a wonderful collection of struggle, discovery, love and strength that is not to be missed." - Christina Reedy, 5/5 stars.
"Conversations of the heart: From Pain to Promise by Carmen M. Sullemun has been a wonderful read and experience. I say experience because the author allowed me to walk in her shoes, experiencing the journey that our Lord took her through. This beautiful narrative in poetry allowed me to see in the Spirit how grand, vast and all-knowing our God truly is. And since He sees the big picture in our lives “From Pain to Promise” expresses all emotion that one may feel throughout our living, as we seek His face and will. From page to page the poems held me and made me want to see what was coming next! Minister Carmen M. Sullemun, thank you for sharing your story with The Word of God to lead the way, and giving hope that Jesus, the Christ loves us and wants the best for us in whatever state we are in. And thank you for the opportunity to read this work of art! Beautiful! To God is the glory!"- Rise Hayes, 5/5 stars.
