Gleaned from personal diaries kept for fifty years, this book portrays a detailed account of the
abundant life and service of J.B.Gaither. This “old time” preacher of the Gospel lived in an era
of tremendous change. If you knew him, you will be uplifted by knowing him better. All will
be inspired by the way he lived, loved and served The Master in the “good ole days” of the
1900’s. He possessed a Christian attitude of “do all you can do and then some.” He genuinely
loved the Lord’s church, and the church loved him back.
About the Author
Sandra Gaither Pitchford is the youngest of five
children of J.B. and Mary Gaither. She and her
siblings constantly reminisce and share the
memories of their rich heritage. Sandra attended
Freed-Hardeman College and received a Home
Economics degree from Harding College in 1970.
She and her husband, Dave, live in Mountain Home,
AR. Dave serves as an elder in the church, and
Sandra enjoys teaching and helping with the Lads to
Leaders program. She considers her greatest
earthly blessings to be that she is a part of the
Gaither legacy and her 29 years as a "stay-at-home
Mom" and now a "stay-at-home Nana." They have
three married children who, along with their
spouses, all graduated from Freed-Hardeman
University: Allison & Russell Epperson, Landon &
Kendra Pitchford, and Alan & Tiffany Pitchford.
The Pitchfords are also blessed with four
grandchildren and a fifth one due in January, 2009.
