Cindy Gentry is a native of Sacramento, California. After graduating with her degree and teaching credential from UC Davis, she spent 32 years teaching, mentoring, and coordinating homeless student services and peer education programs. After posting weekly secular sermons, she was encouraged to put them together into a book. She is living proof that you’re never too old and it’s never to late to live your dream.


A friendly and affirming collection of 52 secular essays with interactive journaling prompts for those seeking spiritual connection and comfort outside the confines of organized religion.

In Sermons on the Couch, Cindy Gentry offers weekly sermons that meet people where they are—whether religious or spiritual, agnostic or atheist. Instead of references to deities, her lessons are placed in the context of a force in the Universe. Instead of Biblical quotes, she uses the wise words of celebrities, scientists, poets, and thinkers. Rather than traditional hymns, she closes each sermon with suggested popular songs from across genres. At the end of each Sermon, she offers journal questions to guide further contemplation of the weekly topic.
