Thirty Days to Glory

By Kathy M. Nickerson


Catherine Benson longs to do One Great Thing before she dies and Elmer Grigsby hopes to stay seriously drunk until he slips out of the world unnoticed. When their destinies intersect one Tuesday in December, they both discover it is only Thirty Days to Glory.
Against a Christmas backdrop, Catherine searches for purpose while fighting the infirmities of age and the best intentions of her children. She gains support in the battle from her faithful housekeeper and her quirky friends known as the Glory Circle Sisters.
Elmer isn’t supported by anyone, except maybe his cat. When he opens the last whiskey bottle of the month, he knows it is time to shuffle down to the post office and pick up his government check. Somewhere in his fog, Elmer knows he was once a better man. That is why he stays in the fog.

Book Takeaway:

A circle of friends and the miracle of prayer can overcome any odds, even when the odds are the infirmities of age and the grip of alcohol.

Why the author wrote this book:

I actually thought up the character of Elmer Grigsby during a similar prayer experiment in our church. I wanted to see what might happen if someone prayed for him anonymously for an extended period of time. And, what a delightful surprise it turned out to be!
