Russell shares honest and humorous anecdotes along the road to faith

I Am Glad - Journey to Faith

I hope young readers will see that [their] grandparents faced many of the same challenges and decisions that they face today.

Gladys McCay Russell’s new book, I Am Glad: Journey to Faith, ($13.99, paperback, 9781498436885; $6.99, e-book, 9781498436892) has a mission: to pass on the importance of faith to the next generation. Her objective is supported by Scripture, namely Deuteronomy 11:18-22, which gives God's commands for the Israelites to pass on their history, laws, and faith. The book came about when the author decided to write an account to help her own grandchildren and others learn from the experiences on her journey to faith in God.

“I hope young readers will see that [their] grandparents faced many of the same challenges and decisions that they face today,” states the author. “Every person of faith has a story to tell that will bless and encourage those who come after us, especially when they part of their own family. I think it shows how we can engage future generations and help pass the importance of faith to them.”

Gladys McCay Russell describes herself as “just an ordinary Grandma” who decided to pass her very own story to her grandchildren as a unique Christmas gift. Her hope was that it would inspire them and give them a better understanding of the importance salvation makes, and the problems that she had to overcome to make that decision. Afterwards, the author began to receive many requests to publish the story, and after making many homemade copies, she decided she would publish the book to inspire others to make the same choice.
