Christine Valters Paintner

Love Holds You is a collection of poetry and devotions from beloved author Christine Valters Paintner. Amid the daily grind, the pain and loss, the fears and doubts, you can lose sight of the firm bedrock of love beneath your feet. Christine weaves together reflections from her own life with her signature poems, encouraging you to find your own new path forward as you start to see the beauty and wonder all around you.

As Christine reflects on the moments and events that shaped her, she invites you to:

  • Recognize the tangible expressions of love that can be found even in the midst of grief

  • Reclaim hope and healing after times of turmoil

  • Discover the strength that God gives you through the beauty of creation

  • Nurture your inner poet, artist, and spiritual pilgrim

A compassionate and experienced retreat leader, Christine has cultivated a following of artists, poets, and spiritual seekers through her Abbey of the Arts, a virtual monastery and global community based in Ireland. Love Holds You is an excellent gift for friends during times of loss, life transition, or uncertainty, or simply a gift for yourself.
