Sheridan Davis is not a stranger to the scene in her role as an author. Ms. Davis is a 25-year-old young woman from the city of Chicago. She is a “preacher’s kid.” Her mother is recording artist, Pastor Trina Davis and her father is Apostle, Prophet Joseph E. Davis (Word for the World Ministries International). Ms. Davis has answered the call to ministry herself and has taken on the roles of actress, director and author. She purposes to “present God in a way where he seems tangible and not like some myth.” She believes it is possible to live a life pleasing to God and that life be enjoyable.
Ms. Davis has two book releases under her belt with her first book “Saved Sex,” which is a guide to sexual purity and her second release is her memoir, “Pretty for A Dark Skin Girl.” Her journey in life has inspired share her dating experiences and lessons gained in regards to preparation for marriage in her upcoming release “I’m Nobody’s Ruth.”
When asked about the inspiration behind the title of the book Ms. Davis explained that some single women pray for God to send them Boaz but are not asking God to make them Ruth. While studying the book of Ruth Ms. Davis discovered various attributes about Ruth that she wanted God to develop within her. She learned not only to pray for her future spouse but to pray for herself as well.
To some, Ms. Davis would be the ideal candidate for marriage because she is a virgin, a minister, has cooking skills and loves family. But, she has learned from experiences that there are still areas she can grow in before marrying someone.
As the author, her prayer is that readers will self-reflect and see that even though marriage is between two people who become one that everyone should take time for themselves and have a desire for God to make them a whole person before they enter marriage.
The book is a great selection to add to your reading list for this year whether you are single or married. There are even discussion questions and space to take notes for those who may use the book for a church group or book club.
