Item Description...
What began 50 years ago, when two high-school English teachers in an Indiana farm community began writing songs to express spiritual insights, has become a volume of church standards sung the world over. Bill and Gloria Gaither's songs have found permanent homes in people's hearts and hymnals, making this couple among the most prolific and popular in Christian music history.

Now fans and music lovers can see inside the inspiration and life events that created the songs they sing most, including Because He Lives, There's Something About That Name, and The Family of God. In her trademark elegant prose, Gloria has created a beautiful keepsake for all those who love Christian music and its history.

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?
I LOVE THIS BOOK!  Feb 3, 2010
This is the best book because it outlines the stories behind all of Bill and Gloria Gaither's best songs! Gloria's descriptions are amazing and seeing her last summer at a Christian Camp tied it all together. You won't regret buying this. I find myself tearing up many times. It has a review written in it that says, "This is the book everyone has been waiting for Gloria to write." and it is so true! Fast shipping! Thank-you for offering.
wonderful-  Jan 27, 2010
I am Mrs. Cross, I ordered the book and have enjoyed it so much. Gloria is so down to earth and genuine. I wish I understood as much as she does and walked as close to the Lord as she does. I could sure use someone like her for a friend
Something Beautiful book by the Gaithers  May 22, 2009
I gave this to my Mom for Mother's Day. We've always loved the Gaithers and have not been disappointed with the book. The book was in brand new condition and was shipped promptly.
Fine  Apr 10, 2009
The book arrived in a reasonable time, in decent condition. I love getting books second hand. What I bought was an old library book. I was fine with that as the price was good.
The Gaithers are an amazing example of Jesus at work in the hearts of His people.
Beautiful Stories!  Apr 29, 2008
This is a very personal look into the background of songs that shaped my life. It is a good read and I found tears flowing from my eyes every chapter!
