Nancy Petrey is a recorded pianist, as well as serving as a church pianist. From age 5 to age 78, her life has been filled with music. The title of this, her fifth book, is taken from her life verse: “Let your light so shine before men, that they will see your good works and give glory to your Father in
heaven” (Matt. 5:16).
One of the major ways she has let her light shine for Jesus is through music, but there is much more to her story than music. Included are ministry times in churches with her husband Curtis and ministry as a “Mizpah for Israel.” Nancy recalls her musical exploits in high school, college, and in her career as choral teacher in public schools, community musician, church choir director, composer, singer, and pianist.
In varied settings, she learned to “bloom where she was planted,” even resorting to comedy routines.
Nancy writes about her hearing impairment and the miracles God did for her. At the end of the book
are some original musical compositions, all based on the Bible.
Nancy lives in Petrey, Alabama. She became a widow two years ago. She and Curtis have four
children and 17 grandchildren.
