More About Gloria Gaither

Gloria Gaither Author, award-winning songwriter, and speaker, Gloria Gaither is known as a stateswoman in the field of Christian ministry. Gloria has written lyrics to more than 600 songs, including such gospel classics as "Because He Lives," "The King Is Coming," and "I Am a Promise" and has authored such best-selling books as "Because He Lives, God Gave the Song", and "Friends through Thick and Thin".

Gloria Gaither (born March 4, 1942) is a Christian songwriter, author, speaker, editor, and academic. She is the wife of Bill Gaither and together they have written more than 700 songs. She performed, traveled and recorded with the Bill Gaither Trio from 1965 through 1985. Since 1990, she has served as a performer, recording artist, songwriter, scriptwriter and narrator for the Gaither Homecoming series of television broadcasts, video and DVD releases, and audio recordings.

She was born Gloria Lee Sickal in 1942 in Michigan, a daughter of pastor Lee Sickal and Dorothy Sickal. She spent most of her childhood and high school career in the Battle Creek area of Michigan, working a brief time for the Kellogg Company. When Sickal graduated from high school, she attended Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana. There, she triple majored in English, French, and Sociology. Upon her graduation, she took a job at Alexandria Monroe High School as a French teacher. There, she met Bill Gaither, who was teaching English at the time. She married Gaither in 1962, and they began writing songs recreationally.

Bill and Gloria began writing songs in the 1960s, and many those songs (including Because He Lives, I Am Loved, Something Beautiful and many others) would go on to become church hymn book standards across North America and around the world. By the end of the 1960s, Gloria, Bill, and Bill's brother Danny Gaither were touring steadily as the Bill Gaither Trio, singing and recording songs Bill and Gloria had written. After touring with the Bill Gaither Trio for nearly 20 years, Gaither drew her focus to the Gaither Homecoming series. She has been an active presence in every video production. In 1991, she attended Ball State University and received a Master of Arts in British and American Literature. She taught as an adjunct professor at Anderson University from 1987-1988 and 1996-1997.

In 1996, she spearheaded the creation of Gaither Family Resources in Alexandria, Indiana, and currently serves as co-owner and managing director. In 2002, Gaither launched Homecoming: The Magazine, and she currently acts as writer, interviewer, and contributing editor.

In 2000, Bill and Gloria were named Christian Songwriters of the Century by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), an award based on the songwriters who have had the most songs recorded over the past 100 years. Gloria is the recipient of seven honorary doctorate degrees, and she is the author of more than 40 books including 20 children's books.

Gloria Gaither currently resides in Alexandria, in the state of Indiana.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Need more children CD's from the Gaither's  Jan 19, 2007
This is good stuff and comes from the tracks of an original LP that we all enjoyed growing up in the 70s but it is just as fresh today. The children's voices were so tight and polished, obviously due to the inspiration of Bill & Gloria Gaither and Gary McSpadden. Well, I had my chance when they came to Jacksonville-Fla a couple of years ago. While Mr Gaither was heading to his dressing room during the intermission, I strode beside him and sang a few bars, mimicking his baritone/bass, "Let all the little children praise the Lord." He smiled. Then, he stopped and turned around and said, "You're going WAY back." Well, Jesus got a hold of my life and He won't let me go.

So, I've tried to reach out again to him and take the opportunity to ask him to please re-issue these. There are atleast two albums, but there is one in particular that was really good. So, not to take any chances: make them all available again on CD. I actually found some available through my church book store on cassette and I thought that they were re-released, so I purchased them all and gave each away to the kids in our choir and then I found out that they have been sitting on the shelf of this warehouse for years, but now they were gone for good. One of the vocal band members joked at this concert that the Veteran's Memorial Coliseum itself would fit in Bill's living room, so I know that he/you can get this done. Please, please release this again for the children's sake, and for us young at heart.
An old song with memories attached!  Feb 16, 2004
I had an old LP by the Gaithers when I was a child with this song on it. So when I saw this title, I immediately wanted to look inside. And it was worth the look. Beautiful illustrations to match a beautiful message. My kids loved the story and wanted it read over and over. I highly recommend it!
