“I wrote you the heavens and the angels,
sound and time,
the universe—with its infinite
galaxies, planets, and stars.

Just for you.
Out of Love.”

What if all creation was God’s love letter to humanity? A story of parental love, beauty, and hope.

God’s Love Letter: Creation is a personal letter from God to the reader, written from God’s perspective, expressing His love for us through all His creation. It is writen in poetic form, and will delight the hearts of all ages with its delicately crafted words and illustrations. It is a work of love that can be shared across faiths.

I ran a (successful) kickstarter campaign on 06 June 2022 (Whit Monday) for 40 days to help fund the production of my picture book: God’s Love letter: Creation.

Watch my Kickstarter video above to learn how the book came about, who it’s for, and why I wrote it.

God’s Love Letter: Creation

Text & Sample illustrations

In the beginning,
when all was dark and empty,
and the world as you know it
did not yet exist—

there was a Word…
… Love
and that Word was someone…
… MeGod.

And I wrote you this love letter.

I wrote you the heavens and the angels,
sound and time,
the universe—with its infinite
galaxies, planets, and stars.

Just for you.
Out of Love.

I painted you the earth, sun, and moon,
night and day.
Charted light from darkness, land from water,
ground from sky.

Just for you.
Out of Love.

I drew you the peaks and the plains,
sand and waves.
Orchestrated summer, autumn, winter, and spring,
sunshine and rain.

Just for you.
Out of Love.

I shaped the flowers and the trees,
fruits and seeds.
Sketched some of the tiniest creatures
your eyes would ever see.

Just for you.
Out of Love.

I composed the great creatures
of the lands, skies,
and the seven seas.
The meek and the fierce.

Just for you.
Out of Love.

Then I made you… in my image,
with a brilliant mind to dream,
a delicate spirit to love,
a free will to choose your way.

And I called you Son.
And I called you Daughter.
And I made all that’s mine—yours,
for that’s what Fathers do.

So, if you ever feel lonely or lost,
scared, broken or blue,
and think that I’ve forgotten you,
which I would never do,

just look up in the heavens,
or across the earth,
and you will see my letter…

… Engraved in the creatures of the lands, skies and seas,
the flowers and the trees,
fruits and seeds,
the peaks and the plains,
the sand and the waves,
sunshine and rain,
sun and moon,
night and day.

… Engraved in the eyes of those around you.
Engraved in your heart and mine.

Just for you.
Out of Love.

But ask the animals, and they will teach you,
or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,
or let the fish in the sea inform you.
Which of all these does not know

that the hand of the 
LORD has done this?
In his hand is the life of every creature
and the breath of all mankind.

(Job 12:7-10, NIV)

Transitions are the chrysalis from which new life can form… & you don’t need to go through them on your own

Coaching people in transition or in search of meaning is a true passion of mine, because I know that, when we choose to go through that uncomfortable, at times painful, space – that’s when we make the most meaningful shifts in our lives. And it’s a journey we are not meant to take alone. Dina

My poem selection

I discovered my love for poetry when I was eight, and that flame has been burning ever since.
Below you find a selection of some of my poems, which you can also discover on my blog.

Woman Wearing Black Head Scarf in Grief Eyes closed as if in prayer

The gifts of grief

Many people don’t like me.
Don’t appreciate me.
They cast me aside,
Rejected.
Neglected.
Despised.

Where do I belong: Ode to a chaotic world

Where do I belong
if not with Thee.
In a world of tumultuous
noise,
persistent flow of
information that carries
no knowledge,
no substance,
no creed.

Martin Luther King Jr holding his hand up, black and white picture

What if Martin Luther King had yet another dream?

This is more of a lyrical text, rather than a poem. MLK’s speech “I Have a Dream” was one I wished I had written. Full of heart. Full of power. Full of passion. Full of naked truths. And so I wondered, what would MLK say about today’s state of affairs? And what about the internet?

Vanilla Sky

(Take a Walk with me)

This song was written as I was imagining what it would be like if God invited us to come and take a walk with Him. It’s one of my favourite songs. 

Coming soon to YouTube and Spotify!

Weapons Down

This song is about life’s many contradictions, and the need for each one of us to “lay our weapons down”, so that our relationships to our fellow human beings and our planet can flourish again.

Coming soon to YouTube and Spotify!

Heartbeat

I wrote this song on the basis of a rhythm that our e-bass player came up with. It sounded like a heartbeat to me, and that then became the inspiration for this songa song celebrating life.

Mirror Mirror

This song started out as a bit of a “joke”, playing on Sleeping Beauty’s famous mirror scene. But then, as I started writing the verses, it morphed into a song about pain and addiction…
