Joshua Rock experienced an invitation from Jesus 20 years ago and in response to God's call came to live among God's people in Detroit. His wife Yvette moved to the city the same day, and two years later he married 'the girl next door.' They have four wonderful, independent, and creative children who bring them beauty, challenge, and great joy. Joshua writes poetry out of his relationships - with God, his wife and children - and from the truth and beauty and love of life he witnesses today. Joshua is currently embracing the adventure of building relationships centered around Jesus and his teachings, and his writing is a response to God's invitation as the earth responds to the song of the rains of spring.
