About Linsey Davis
For Davis her three-year-old son served as her inspiration, and Psalm 118:24 is the blueprint of the book: "This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
"Almost daily he takes my hand and he leads me into the world around him with fresh eyes, and it serves as a subtle reminder of all the reasons to rejoice and anticipate each new day. The World is Awake is a whimsical look at all that is extraordinary in an ordinary day. It is an exploration of the splendor and majesty of God's blessings all around us through the lens of young people."
In addition to her role at ABC, she is a Christian, wife, mother and author. She is also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc and the National Association of Black Journalists.
