Item description for A Glimpse of Japan, Through the Eyes of a Christian English Teacher by Sharon Murphy...

A Glimpse of Japan by a Christian English teacher is just what this book is about. A glimpse, a peek, a fleeting view of a beautiful, old country filled with traditions that fill almost every aspect of daily life. Facts and my personal experience in Japan became the backdrop for this book.

Living and visiting in Japan for a time of almost five years I was able to be part of the daily living, become a member of the real life going ons. Because of this I was able to understand a lot of what life was like for my Japanese students.

Those of us who know of God's forgiveness through Jesus Christ I believe have an obligation to share this anyway we can. My husband and I did this through an English outreach program.

Living, working for the church and getting to see and know others in the mission field was a wonderful experience. My husband and I both felt it was an undeniably a high point in our lives.

More About Sharon Murphy

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Sharon Murphy was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the youngest of five daughters in a working-class Catholic family. As a child, she was certain that she would become a writer or a musician. But her mother insisted that being an artist was a goal for other people-people with money-impractical for someone like her. After twelve years of parochial school and two years at Oklahoma State University, Sharon followed her sisters to California. She was filled with dreams of liberation and rebellion that she gleaned from the evening news. Sharon worked as a sales clerk, a waitress, a nurse's aide, a community organizer, and a counsellor for battered women, and she has worked for the last thirteen years as a paralegal. Murphy always felt as if she were "a right-brained person trapped in a left-brained world." Her mother's words were imbedded in her soul and writing remained just a hobby. Sharon was a member of Mothertongue Feminist Reader's Theatre and performed her one and only rap song on KQED, the public radio station in Berkeley, California. She was in her fifty's before she decided to dust off her long-delayed dream of becoming a serious writer. She took classes at The Writing Salon in Oakland, attended Joyce Maynard's Writing Workshop at Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, and worked with author and writing coach Adair Lara in San Francisco. In 2009, Sharon was accepted to the Squaw Valley Community of Writers in California. "I spent my thirty's running, my forty's recovering; now it's time to do what I wanted to do all along." In 2011, she completed her memoir about her abusive relationship and marriage to Guy Johnson, son of author Maya Angelou and her controversial decision to take their son and escape to the underground. In recent years, Sharon moved from the West Coast to Rockville, Maryland to be near her son, Colin and her two grandchildren. Murphy takes classes at The Bethesda Writer's Center and is working on a second book, a novel about a group of friends and lovers who face a life and death crisis which transforms them into a family.

Sharon Murphy was born in 1955.
