I’m Alice, also known as Allie, and I love to write, from letters to blog posts to books. This transplanted Southern gal, is blessed to have recently retired from a rewarding career in education and downsized from a home I loved. 

Life was pretty good before, but now, it’s great, and more God-filled than ever before!  My joy is found in Jesus and finding ways to encourage His kids. 

My prayer is that if you need a faith booster, a chuckle, or a dose of hope you’ll be able to find it here at Allie’s Praise!  And by the way, Dear Reader, I’d love to hear from you, because…I’m writing for you! Drop me a line at, or in the blog comments section below. 

I hope your day is as full of blessings as a bowl of homemade ice cream and fresh, sugared peaches is full of calories!

“The novel features many biblical references to substantiate the stories, and Alice V. Walters does an impeccable job in exploring the heart of Jesus, writing with intelligence about his relationships and his manner of dealing with the challenges he faced every day. Behind the Halo: Exploring the Humanity of Jesus will not only entertain readers but inspire them to see Jesus as likable and closer to their reality and to deepen their perspective of Him… This book creates an exciting experience of walking with Jesus through His life and ministry.”
