Home News About the Author Author Interview About the Book

My name is Terri Gray and I was born and raised in California. At the age of 18, I graduated from high school, enlisted in the Army and moved to Ft. McClellan, Alabama for basic training to pursue a career in physical therapy.

I have four brothers, Stuart, Brian, Sean and Kevin, and was raised by my wonderful parents, Bob and Sue Julian. All five of us were adventurous, and moved out into the big world after graduation. Brian joined the Navy, Kevin, the Marines, and Sean went to Embry Riddle University to become a pilot, and Stuart attended college to become a social worker.

After basic training, I attended my advanced individual training at Ft. Sam Houston, Texas. Shortly after graduation, I met David Gray, the man I would some day marry. It turned out that we were both at the same company and battalion. During the time I was stationed at Ft. Sam Houston, I committed my life to Jesus Christ, and fell in love with my Lord. It wasn’t too long afterward that David and I married, in July 1981.

Since that time, David and I have had two wonderful children, Jennifer and Christopher. Jennifer was born with a birth defect, spina bifida, which changed our lives drastically. It taught me to be a patient loving mom and how to appreciate the little things in life. Watching Christopher grow up was even more faith-moving, as he did reach all the normal life-changing milestones that Jennifer could not. So I appreciated them all the more. And when Jennifer did reach a goal, it was cause for great celebration!

So who I am is wrapped up in who God designed me to be. A woman of faith and great confidence in the Lord, who has proven Himself faithful over all the years. In May 2003, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I just figured God would see us through this, the same way He saw us through Jennifer’s ongoing health crisis.
