About Glenys

Although I live in Michigan, USA, I was born and raised in a little village in northern England.

I grew up in a big old house, with two wonderful parents and seven siblings. My dad was the one who introduced me to the gospel. My mum was the one who encouraged me to work with children.

And at primary school, my teacher was the one who urged me to write. One day a week, I was one of the lucky few withdrawn from the classroom to sit in big, comfy armchairs in the teachers’ lounge. There, in front of a roaring log fire, with pencil and paper at the ready, I would write.

Four long decades later, I would find myself living across the pond, married to a wonderful man, mum to four sons and three daughters-in-law, and grandma to three bouncing boys and one gorgeous girl. And as if all that wasn’t blessing enough, I somehow became an author, despite giving up on my first book half way through.

And if you would have told me then, that this book would one day become a series, that I would begin a second series, and a third… I never would have believed you. The only possible explanation is that our great God is able to do immeasurably more than all I could ever ask or possibly imagine.

And to God, alone, be the glory.

    I discovered your website by chance. So sorry to read here that Joan had died. She was a lovely, funny, energetic lady. I have often wondered over the years how you were all getting along. Your book looks wonderful.
    Love to you all. Julia

      Hi Julia! It’s great to hear from you! David and I are well, and we have three adorable grandsons, with a grand daughter on the way! It was sad for us to travel back to England for Joan’s funeral, but what a blessing that we could be there. I’m so glad you found my website (more books are to follow this one!). I hope you are well and happy. Stay in touch. Love, Glenys

    Glenys, I love your books. The most recent one coming out in a few days about Mriam and her fears will go right into the hands of a granddaughter who does have fears..we have prayed together about them and experienced God take care of the fears one by one. This book will be such an encouragement for her. Thank you for allowing The Lord to use you for his glory in such ways that do change little (and big lives). God Bless you, Sue
