A local author recently had the opportunity to publish a story about her father, well-known in the Pleasant View community, in the latest edition of Chicken Soup for the Soul.
Jennifer Davidson, daughter of George Clark, was able to bring to life a Christmas miracle that occurred between the two on Clark’s last Christmas. Entitled “Daddy's Last Christmas,” the personal tale can be found on page 298 of the freshly published Chicken Soup for the Soul: Miracles & Divine Intervention.
Autographed copies of the book can be found in Pleasant View at Van’s Hardware, where Clark loved to be.
“Daddy could be found at Van’s any day of the week,” Davidson says fondly.
Clark was a pastor at Pleasant View First Baptist Church for over 30 years, also working at LifeWay Christian Resources for 27 of those years. He served as chaplain for the Pleasant View Volunteer Fire Department for over 30 years, and served the Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office, notifying families of accidents and deaths.
For nearly 30 years, Clark also wrote for a national audience of over 70,000 per month, contributed weekly to two local newspapers, and hosted the Glory Road and Peace in the Valley radio programs at WQSV.
He spent his Saturdays at Van's Hardware, hangin' around entertaining customers with endless stories. After his retirement, he was a “daily squatter “at Van's to the delight of many in the community.
Davidson made her fateful connection with Chicken Soup for the Soul when a regular contributor happened upon her blog.

In addition to Van’s Hardware, copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Miracles & Divine Intervention can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Walmart.
