The challenging, humorous or frustrating trials of life and the reality of needing God daily are covered in Real Life ... poems for everyday living, a new poetry collection by Tom McNabb.

Illustrated with full-color, breathtaking photography, Real Life ... poems for everyday living contains 47 poems that will make readers smile (“Where’s My Glasses” or “At the Checkout”), think (“What Christmas is All About”) and even ponder the inevitable (“The Door Called Death”). The compilation also contains poems Tom penned for others. One moving example is “Hannah’s Thoughts,” which was written for a non-verbal young woman with Angelman’s Syndrome.

Faith is a major theme of the collection, with poems such as “What is His Name,” “”Unseen Powers,” and “My Shepherd.” Australian Evangelist Bill Newman endorsed the compositions, saying “I know these poems will bless you so much. The only thing missing is to hear Tom reciting these in person. His beautiful Irish accent and charm will wing them into your heart. I know these poems will touch your heart as they do mine.”

A few years passed before he was inspired to write again, but he has since penned hundreds of poems based on experiences he or close friends have had in life. McNabb moved to Australia in 1983.
