Ray McClendon is a Poet Theologian who is very grateful to God for the gracious gift of verse and thirty years of teaching ministry that has provided a few insights along the way. Ray’s desire is to combine faithfulness to the stories and principles found in God’s Word with lovely art and clever rhyme to retell these Bible stories in a way that will entertain as well as instruct the mind, touch the heart, and fire the imagination. More of Ray’s poetic work may be found at his website, Reflections of A Poet Theologian, at www.dropsofdew.com
In addition to writing children’s books, Ray still serves as an Outreach Minister and a Police / Fire Chaplain for his community. He has been married to Linda, his high school sweetheart, for 40 years. They have four children, four grandchildren, and consider their close, loving family to be their greatest achievement.
