Poetry collection released
PEMBERVILLE - Eastwood High School graduate and student at Bowling Green State University Kevin C. Martin has released his first collection of poems entitled Joshua 1:9. Released independently, the collection includes 21 poems on faith, hope, and love with special emphasis on the struggle between fear and bravery.
Written over the past year while he says he was enduring difficult life circumstances, Martin said he "found inspiration" in day-to-day experiences.
"Joshua 1:9 is all about letting go of fear, allowing God to take the lead, and simply saying 'yes' to being brave," Martin says about his collection.
The title is based on a Bible verse which called him to be brave.
Joshua 1:9 is now available for physical copy and digital download at Each physical copy will be hand signed and autographed with a personalized note.
