My quiet time pondering thoughts, in poetry form, concerning spiritual and humorous life events .
This book is a variety of poems expressing my feelings about the importance of forming a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Searching and finding truth is something we should all do. Finding truth sometimes requires us to make changes in our life. Changes have happened to me throughout my life and are still happening. The book contains many of my pondering thoughts both spiritual and humorous. My hope is that you will enjoy reading this book and in doing so will install a few new thoughts in your mind,

Ponderings on Dan Tucker's Poetry I was gifted this book by my sister-in-law and pleasantly pleased with the broad range of gospel topics it covers. The sweet insights into the heart and soul of Dan Tucker are restful and pleasing. He addresses topics that many of us struggle with throughout our lives or the lives of people we love. He has a simple, homespun way of teasing out the most meaningful gospel topics from common human experiences. While I may not meet Dan in this life, I look forward to meeting him in the next.

I keep the book out and when I have just a few minutes, it’s fun to read a new poem and experience new thoughts. I especially like the poems that Daniel wrote about his love for the Savior. It helps me to spend time thinking about my own relationship with God. Read more
Thoughtful, Inspiring and Humorous All In One Book! Dan Tucker has spent a lifetime developing his talent for writing poetry, beginning with wonderful Christmas poems about his family. His portrayal of the events in his life combined with tender and endearing reminiscings about spiritual events and personalities depicted in his delightful book shows a combination of his deeply spiritual side, his fun-loving sense of humor and everything in between! His poems will bring you to tears one minute and send you into laughter the next as he writes about those things that are the most important in his life. As you will soon see in his preface, he has experienced the height of joy and the depth of pain through the events in his life, his family and his faith. I especially appreciate the thoughtful prefaces to nearly every poem. I would highly recommend this book, one you can scan through and read many times over depending on your emotional needs at the time. Read more
