A compilation of 22 Spiritual plays for Christmas, Easter, and Other Occasions, written by a Black Christian Woman. The plays are practical lessons from Gods Word in a simplified format injected with humor for the edification, inspiration and enjoyment to Christians and non-Christians alike. Working as scriptwriter, producer and director for the performance of these plays in her church for thirteen years provided the writer an additional way to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, enhancing Biblical knowledge to the writer, reader, play performer and viewing audience. Mary E. Smith was the first employee in her agency of more than 600 employees to be designated for the Management Intern Program in the District of Columbia Government.
She received the Mayors Employee Of The Year Award one year and the Second Runner-up of the same award four years later. She was also awarded the Mayors Meritorious Public Service Award at the end of her tenure in D.C. Government for outstanding community service. She additionally received a Recognition and Appreciation Award from her church in Landover, Maryland for skillfulness in creative writing and for production of these plays in their church.
