Judy, tell us something about your writing journey.
I started writing over 25 years ago in 1985 when I felt the calling of God. I was reading my Bible and prayed, "God you have been so good to me, what can I do for you?" I turned to the Scripture in Jeremiah 30:2 "Write every word I have spoken to you in a book." I had never written anything but a few letters and felt like Moses. Who me?
The journey began as doors opened for me. I started writing a column in the local newspaper, attending the Florida Christian Writer's Conference each year for almost 20 years, went to college while working full time for the government. Later, in 1995, I earned an Associate Degree in Theology. I retired from my Civil Service career in 2004. God equips those He calls. I have never looked at Christian writing as a career but as a ministry.
Is this your first book?
No, this was my 11th book. Some of them are on
What caused you to want to write this book?
Last Jan 2013, I prayed for the new year and in my prayer, I asked God, "What would be a good devotional to read this year?" And the words came into my heart and spirit, "Why not write your own devotional, a 365-day devotional?" I started writing that day and continued writing almost each day for a year. Happy New You Reading the Bible Through will soon be released from the publisher.
I can sure identify with that since I wrote my 365 day devotion book, Divine Dining. God does give the words. Do you have another book in the works?
No, not at this time.
Where is your favorite writing place?
In my office. My husband bought a new computer for me for Christmas. I also enjoy writing on my laptop.
If a song could describe you, what would that song be?
I can't think of a song but my life verse is "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, do not lean on
your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight." Proverbs 3: 5,6
Oh, I love that verse, too. Good to remember. Can you tell us something about your new book?
Here's an excerpt from the forward that my pastor wrote for the book.
In this book, “Happy New You”, Judy Davis takes you through a journey in the
Scripture that allows you to read, reflect, experience, and interact with God.
In this quest for “something more”, as you allow your heart to brush up against
eternal truth, there will be subtle, yet powerful, changes in your life. When
the liberating power of this truth begins to work its way into the essence of
your soul and spirit, the experience of reading the Scripture will transform
from a task to a highlight of your day.
As a pastor, I am always giving counsel to believers on resources that will
strengthen their walk with Christ. I can say, without hesitation, that this
resource will serve that purpose in a uniquely practical way! Pastor Merrill
