Greeneville teacher publishes devotional book

Gerry Sensanbaugh, a Greeneville Teacher of Religion, has published a new devotional book.
The book uses the Book of Psalms to create a custom devotional for seniors.
Sensanbaugh said the book is customized for senior adults and senior couples. “It is my desire to look at the Psalms after years of experiencing life and living a life with spouses, family and friends that God has brought into our life,” said the author.
Each devotional comes from Psalms, Sensanbaugh’s favorite book, because it covers everything life brings to us. Joy and praises, sorrow and tears, sin and repentance, fear and doubts, love, grace, and mercy. “Whatever my need for the day, I can find the answers in Psalms,” she said.
The devotionals are short and to the point. It is her desire that you spend this time alone or with your spouse and then discuss your thoughts and feelings. This will then lead you to your personal time with God alone in Bible study and prayer.
Sensanbaugh grew up in Texas with her mother and older brother. Her mother was a living example of what a Christian looked like. Through her love for the Lord, Sensanbaugh’s brother, herself, and others were always foremost in her life. When Sensanbaugh was 12 years old, she made a public profession of faith and began assisting teaching in a primary Sunday school class. She has been teaching/leading classes of all ages since that time in Sunday school, Discipleship Training, home Bible studies, nursing homes, and Bible conferences. She believes teaching is the gift God has given her because she loves telling others what she has learned from God’s Holy word. At one time, she went through some struggles, but God would not let her go. He had a plan, purpose, and His will for her life.
When she completely surrendered to Him, He began to place her back into teaching/leading, and she has taught senior adults for the past 30 years. She loves them because she is one of them. She loves the open discussions, sharing of information, and loving God’s Holy Word. His love letter drives her to study harder and pray more for His voice.
Praising God is a 190-page paperback with a retail price of $16 (eBook $11). It was published by RoseDog Books of Pittsburgh, Pa.
