"Jenneth Graser's poems in "The Present Moment of Happiness" gift us with all the paradox of true poetry: a feast for the senses, and also a pathway beyond the senses, emotional richness and also the peace beyond the peaks and valleys of our emotional lives. Reading her work, our humanity is fed with the magic of ordinary experience, and our connection to divinity is gently, deeply opened. Inside, between, around the words: love. The residue of reading her work: happiness and love."
- Brooke McNamara author of Feed Your Vow, Poems for Falling into Fullness
"Rediscover "jasmine .../ a flush of white stars flung into the kitchen." Daydream a little. Hope again. Simultaneously grounded in Creation "where moss lingers/ on the fringes of time" yet "in tune with all wings," Jenneth Graser's prayerful poems resonate: invitational, intimate as unnamed yearning, instructive as proverbs. All speak of, and with, Love, venturing among "words . . . threaded into the/ quilt of lives," where "We are all neighbors.""
- Laurie Klein author of Where the Sky Opens
"The Present Moment of Happiness is more than a collection of poems. It is a gentle invitation to explore our relationship with God, more bravely than before. Jenneth paints a sacred space with her words and the ordinary soon becomes the extraordinary. These are words born from personal struggle, that draw one in to listen to His tender voice that speaks healing over our brokenness. They are a beautiful reminder to seek the sacred in the mundane and for us to be expectant for more of Him, despite the hardship of our journey."

"The Present Moment of Happiness is a personal journey in which the poetic voice is a guiding spirit lending direction to discovery of the Divine within."
- Jamie K. Reaser author of Coming Home: Learning to Actively Love this World
"Jenneth Graser's book, The Present Moment of Happiness is a reflective gift of poetry where the writer's heart/soul are open and revealing to writing her personal journey with God. Honest, vulnerable and accepting as to how Spirit moves through her in her beautiful writing we hear healing threads of honesty, listening, and renewing through these pages and periods of her life. Jenneth's mystical voice teaches and sings at the same time. She guides one through moment after moment of experiences in nature, relationship and specifically with the God who is in our present moments, bringing revelation and deep contentment."
- Donna Knutson author of Finding God on Mayberry Street
"The Present Moment of Happiness is a rare jewel - literary poetry about one's love story with The Trinity God. These poems have no clich s, are not didactic, and are raw full of lines that give that poetic punch right in the heart. Each of the senses are experienced in these poems: the scent of an orange in "The Present Moment of Happiness: " the touch of His hand in "The Beautiful Man;" the sound of the river in "A Tree Psalm;" watching the rain in "When the Day Was Set to Unravel, Here You Are;" the speaking of weeping in "Tiny Seeds;" and the tasting of stars in "You Will Find Your Flight.""
