John T. Smith, IV expects to receive his Master of Arts with a dual concentration in Religious Studies and English from Dallas Baptist University May 2018. Mr. Smith received his B.A. from the School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Texas at Dallas in 1994. His personal interests include volunteering in the community as a Meals on Wheels driver in Gregg County. He is also an active member of Fellowship Bible Church. My first published work is forthcoming and will be available in the local Books-A-Million chain store in the Spring 2018. Entitled, "I Shall Wear a Crown", the offering is a garden variety "Chicken Soup" chess devotional of meditations and anecdotal observations on the state of things in the Texas Public (and private) classroom, with religious overtones. Admittedly, a narrow market for such books and priced accordingly.
