Fran Myers is married to Jack Myers and lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Together they have four children and eight grandchildren.
She has written primarily for her children, sharing stories of her life and the life of her parents and grandparents to keep their ancestry alive. She has also written a family cookbook to preserve Italian recipes of her immigrant grandparents and others.
Fran is retired from Catholic Charities of Tennessee and Visitation Hospital Foundation both located in Nashville. She has served in pastoral ministry both in her parish and throughout the diocese most of her adult life. Her retirement has given her time to develop her prayer life, which is the inspiration in writing this book, and sharing stories of herself, and those of others, to build up our awareness of God’s never-ending love for us and communication with us.
Her passion for social justice has led her to form various ministries in her diocese and parish, and she and her husband continue to stay involved in works of justice through prayer and advocacy.
She holds a master’s degree in pastoral services from Loyola University, New Orleans, and an undergraduate degree in communications, with a minor in theology, from Marymount Manhattan College, New York City.
She currently serves as president of the board of trustees for the nonprofit Visitation Hospital Foundation, based in Nashville, which has constructed a full-service outpatient clinic in southwest Haiti in the town of Petite Rivière de Nippes. She continues to support the organization’s operations.
Fran also paints in her spare time, is an avid reader, participates in ministry at her local parish and community in Nashville, loves walks on the Greenway with Jack, bakes, cooks, and enjoys entertaining family and friends.
This is her first published book in nonfiction, and she plans on continuing to share stories of God speaking with His people. She also hopes to write historical fiction in the future about the plight of her immigrant grandparents and family members.
