Intimate Conversation with Dr. Evelyn Murray Drayton

Intimate Conversation with Dr. Evelyn Murray Drayton and Ella Curry of EDC Creations

Dr. Evelyn Murray Drayton, an ordained minister from Georgetown , South Carolina , holds a doctorate degree in Christian Counseling. Evelyn speaks about her experiences of heartaches, trials, and victories on her Christian journey. She effectively deals with church hurt and forgiveness to help bring healing in the Body of Christ.

Ella: Where are you from? How did you start your writing journey?
I have lived in beautiful Georgetown , South Carolina for the past 20 years where I am happily married to Mr. Russell Drayton and together we have two handsome sons, Justin and Nicholas. My first book was published in 2004 and now I am proud of my recently published book number five titled, “Watermelon Faith.”

Ella: What makes your book stand out and would entice a reader to pick it up?
My book has a beautiful eye-catching cover and the book title “Watermelon Faith” is thought provoking and catchy. The book is newsworthy because it addresses deception in leadership which we are experiencing in all facets of life today and is on the increase; however, people are looking for true leaders. The book compares the heart of the watermelon to the heart of man in an effort for us to look within for true leadership qualities. The book shows that true leadership starts and ends in the heart; not based solely on outward appearances.

Ella: Ultimately, what do you want readers to gain from your book?
I want readers to be inspired and motivated to go through life’s problems with strength, courage, and optimism. I want readers to know that my book addresses many of the typical issues that they may face in their religious experiences. The body of Christ is experiencing increased deception. I want people to know the Truth and that not all people in the church are bad watermelons (hypocrites). I want people to know that there is possibly a bad watermelon in every patch, but this book will help them to make better selections and hopefully “pick good melons.”
Ella: What has been your most significant achievement as a writer?
My most significant achievement as a writer has been… for readers to tell me that my book has encouraged them to have a closer relationship with God. To me that is significant because the purpose of my writing is to inspire, motivate, and educate in an effort to bring healing to people’s lives. I hope all of my readers will become empowered to take back their spiritual power and be proactive to achieve desired results for their lives spiritually.

Ella: What advice would you give to a new writer?
I would advise a new writer to know what it is he/she wants the book to accomplish, stay focused on that purpose, believe in that product, and be willing to work long hours to accomplish all goals.
About the book Watermelon Faith
In Watermelon Faith, author Evelyn Murray Drayton offers spiritual empowerment. She compares the heart of the watermelon to man’s heart. “Watermelon Faith” carefully tackles difficult church issues with intelligence and compassion. The book detects wolves in the watermelon patch and exposes the wolves in sheep’s clothing that present colossal problems in groups of organized religion. Her book takes readers on a journey through the watermelon patch as she parallels the excursion to the life of the church. Dr. Drayton’s book describes in poignant details how to become one who prays instead of one who preys. Watermelon Faith is more than just a mere book. It is a testimony of God’s ability to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we could ever ask.
