My name is Gladys Juma. A wife, mother, teacher, speaker, corporate leader and author. Above all, a child of the Most high God.
I knew I would write a book way back in my primary school days (and that’s a long time ago). I have always been an avid reader and what fascinated me was the thought process of different authors. The level of talent and creativity in putting together content that changed lives, or that entertained, etc. Particularly so because the books got read by strangers like me! I knew that I wanted to be that person. One who would create great works that would impact those who I may never know. I however wasn’t clear on what to write about. This only became clear later in life.
I am a certified accountant with several years of experience in financial management. I love making sense of numbers. I also like impacting the lives of people. When people and numbers come together, I am in my element. Part of my corporate career experience was working with 2 investment banks. And that’s how everything aligned to personal finance. I enjoy teaching on money management. It therefore became apparent that my books would on money management (I now have 3 with 2 more on the way).
Managing your Finances God’s Way, my first took about 3 years to write – on and off because of work schedule. Also, at a time I was about to complete my manuscript, I lost my work! I did not despair (though I was very distressed). I picked myself up and rewrote it by God’s grace, using the pieces I could find.
I would like to be remembered as a woman who God used to guide others in making the most of their resources as His great stewards and to enjoying God-honouring financial abundance! And through authoring this book, I hope to have achieved this noble task.
