Leroy Carpenter

Mountain Poet

Here is a man who was blessed to grow up and live in an area that revealed and magnified God’s creation at its best, the mountains of Western North Carolina.

His appreciation magnified itself in rhyme, which is now set to pages in a book, “Creation Praises God.” In this interview with Neal Hearn, he talks about how and why he began to write poetry and where the words come from.
