Interview with Glory S. Davis

Author of:

Sometimes I Look at Sinners:
A Collection of Short Stories

 

 

Available on Amazon

 

 

Glory you have had an amazing career of over 43 years as an educator. During any of that time did you consider any writing projects?

 

Yes, off course. I was an English and speech teacher in secondary school. I wrote many skits, plays, and speeches for students. But, I was too busy to do anything professional.

 

When did you realize that there was a writer in you yearning to express herself?

 

Near the end of my career, I attended the South Mississippi Writing Project Summer Institute at the University of Southern Mississippi. Because I was complimented and encouraged, I caught the bug there and decided that whenever I got the chance, I would try my hand at it. After retiring, I was so bored that I started writing meditations. From there, I wrote eight stories which I published.

Glory Davis - Book
Today we will be discussing your book:
Sometimes I Look at Sinners: A Collection of Short Stories.
Is this your first published book?

Yes, it is.

What was your inspiration to write this book?

Many people look at America and worry about the economy; I, however, looked at America and worried about man’s separation for God and his propensity to sin. I thought that I would try to do something to put America back on the course toward being the religious country that it was in the beginning… for which it was founded.

 

Tell us what readers can expect to find in:
Sometimes I Look at Sinners: A Collection of Short Stories.

 

My readers can expect to fine eight delightful stories with religious themes. They can also expect to learn or be reminded of religious truths about honesty, dying, lost hope, deception, fornication, and many other forms of sin.

 

What do you hope will be the impact on readers after they read your short stories?

I hope that they will find the lessons presented in a funny and entertaining way. However, I want the readers to take the stories seriously, to recognize and to internalize each of the themes. It is my wish that my stories win souls for Christ.

 

Do you have your next writing project in the works?
If so, can you give us any hints of what comes next?

 

I have completed a book of meditations, Outside the Gates of Heaven, which I plan to publish by the end of this year. I have also completed a self-help book, Escape for Mothers of Prisoners. I plan to publish it soon after my second book. After those books are published, I am going to write sequels to several of my stories.

 

What advice would you give to other writers who are in a sense “waiting to retire” to pursue their writing passions?

 

I would advise them to read, read, read and read some more. It is also helpful to keep a journal, not only a reflective one, but one in which they record descriptions of people, places, and interesting conversations. The journal will be very helpful, especially when writing fiction. Lastly, I would advise them to learn the business of publishing and of promoting books.

About This Project

 

This is definitely not your average children’s Bible! If you thought the bestseller “Go The F**k To Sleep” was inappropriate for story-time with kids, you haven’t seen anything yet! Leave it to the Bible!

How well do you know the Good Book?
What began as a private online gag among interfaith friends quickly grew into a book to meet the demands of adoring fans! Combining actual Bible verses with more than 30 whimsical original illustrations, Awkward Moments uses humor to encourage people from all walks of faith to think, perhaps for the first time, about how the Bible continues to shape our culture.

Let’s be honest – there are some things in the Good Book that are just… awkward! There are verses we’d like to forget or that have been changed throughout the centuries. There are many verses you’ve never heard before in church, let alone seen in your average children’s Bible! Not to mention the verses that have been added over the centuries!

Awkward Moments Children’s Bible is much more than an irreverent book for your coffee table! Readers of all faiths will find themselves laughing out loud while being encouraged to think about the Bible in a new way.

The Goal? Awkward Moments encourages readers to really understand what is in their Bibles and think for themselves about the context of Biblical teaching. The 32 color illustrations and included commentaries will likely challenge some readers to reflect on how religion continues to shape the lives and culture of future generations. If readers happen to laugh out loud and enjoy the interactive puzzles and games in the mean time – it’s just an added bonus!

Review

What Some Ministry Leaders Are Saying About The Book? 

 

‘The Underground Church is a vague concept to American believers–typically the fodder for Christian movies meant to entertain.The time will come, perhaps sooner than we realize, that we will be glad we have a copy of this book to turn to.’
– Steve Gallagher (Founder of Pure Life Ministries).

‘The church of the future, may indeed become the church of the past–gospel fellowships.’
– Shane Idleman (Pastor of Westside Christian Fellowship)

About the Author

Gospel Fellowships are fellowships of like-minded believers in Jesus Christ meeting together in autonomous groups of 2-3 or more on a weekly basis under the Headship of Jesus Christ. Gospel Fellowships is not a organization, denomination or nonprofit group but is simply a network of believers who agree with the basic burdens expressed in the Principles Book. Thus, Gospel Fellowships is centered on the fact that there is only one body of Christ universal in the world and that all true disciples of Jesus Christ are a part of that body.

Break Out Of Poverty Into Financial Abundance

Break Out Of Poverty Into Financial Abundance

SonyaThompsonBkIt’s time for the Body of Christ to break free from the spirit of debt, lack and poverty and step into the financial abundance the Father has prepared just for us. Throughout the Bible, God always prospered His people but something dramatically and radically wrong has happened to today’s New Testament believer. We have bought into an erroneous doctrine which has crept in through the pulpit. This doctrine says there is something wrong with Christians who want to and who do prosper financially. Your Father doesn’t want you making due with just enough or living from one paycheck to another.

This powerful volume has been breathed on by the Holy Spirit Himself. He will open up your heart to receive His truths in the area of financial abundance. You hold in your hands the Biblical keys to break out of whatever financial prison you are in today. You’ll learn how to Break out of Poverty Into Financial Abundance!
