Poems & Jokes

The Face Up Production staff have been writing poems & Telling Jokes in support of Church events, Conferences & Festivals for many years and built up an impressive amount of material. Instead of lying in a filing cabinet gathering dust we thought it would be better to offer some of the material to general release. In this way you could use it for your local fellowship, school or Christian event. We therefore offer a few samples of our work and a free licence to use them for Kingdom work. If you like what you read and would like to have more material then we can either write material to order, send a full collection or run workshops.

She will be loving, beautiful, kind, loyal & faithful. She will make you feel wonderful every day of your life." Adam was stunned. "That sounds great!" "I'm glad you like the idea, but it doesn't come cheap. It will cost you an arm & a leg." Adam thought about this for a moment and said, "What will I get for just a rib?"
