Hello friends! I’m so glad you have come for a visit to my blog.
I am Shari Ray ~ wife, mother, teacher, speaker, writer.
I’ve been teaching British literature in high school for over thirty years now, so if you frequent this blog, you will notice that much of my writing makes connections to both the Bible and literature. It has become the way I think about things.
I’m married to Larry ~ also for over thirty-five years. He is a pastor by trade and my oldest friendship. We’ve known each other since fifth grade, so we have seen so many things, literally and metaphorically, over these years together. His stories are my stories ~ they mingled together long ago, and there’s no separating them now. Among our friends and family, we call him “Lad.”
Rainey is my daughter, and there is none better. Smart, articulate, and wise beyond her years, she is counselor, theologian, mother, and writer in her own right. She is married to Coleton, the finest son-in-law in the land, who is a pastor in Memphis.
We are a family of readers, writers, counselors, and pastors. We are storytellers.
Thank you for reading my stories. My prayer is that they will bless and strengthen you.
