My name is Glenda Harper.

I was Glenda Kemp, the snake dancer.

When I was in my 20’s, I exposed my body.

Now I am in my 60’s, I expose my spirit.

The difference?

The one is eternal!

“And this is the way to have eternal life, to know You, the only true eternal God and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.” John 17: 2-4

I live in South Africa. My life is full of daily treasures and I hope to share it with you through the word, prayers and photos in this blog.

  1. When is your book coming out, Glenda

    • Hello Martha, Hopefully the Amazon and Kindle version will be out before Christmas. Just watch the book space. I will be deleting the unedited parts on the blog when the book comes out. Have a blessed day. Glenda.

  2. Glenda,
    I am a conservative Afrikaner (of your age!) and was in Simonsberg residence in Stellenbosch.
    You visited us and had lunch with us, in the early 1970’s, ‘can’t remember the year (1972-75)?

    I am amazed at the change in your life and praise God for it!

    I found you web page through a comment on the fb –page ‘Cape Town Down memory Lane’

    Blessings to to and your family.
    ‘Baie liefde en seën’.
