Ruth Perry lives with her husband on a small farm in the beautiful Ozarks of Missouri. A retired payroll manager, Ruth recently discovered her gift for writing. In addition to this devotional, she has written a short story about her experiences on becoming a full-time caregiver to her husband, a stroke survivor, and has tried her hand at poetry as well. Motivating and inspiring others drives her to continue putting her thoughts to paper. A member of the United Methodist church, Ruth accompanies the organist by playing the piano in the church services. She is also a rotational one-room Sunday school teacher in her church.
