The True Adventures of an American Grandmother in Baghdad...
and Beyond
About Evelyn
With the Iraq war as the backdrop, Grambo shares the gripping faith journey of an American grandmother in Baghad...and beyond.

Grambo is Evelyn Chriswell's amazing true story of love, loss, and triumph during war.  This American grandmother - a proper Southern lady who served with soldiers in Iraq - draws from a wealth of life lessons and encourage women of all ages to face trials head-on. What's her best advice?  "Know intimately and serve passionately a Man named Jesus Christ."

In addition to serving as a civilian statistical analyst with the United States Department of the Army, Evelyn has worn many different hats throughout her life:  missionary, minister's wife, Sunday school teacher, small group administrator, pianist, organist, counselor, and program manager for various social service agencies. Working in the Morale, Welfare, and Recreation Regional (MWR) department in Baghdad from 2004 to 2007, her duties included the administration and management of all professional and technical staff in 57 MWR facilities for American and Coalition Forces.

Evelyn was a contributing author to the book, My Name Is Christian Woman, various other publications and continues as an inspirational speaker to groups around the world.  Even though she has lived all over the globe, Evelyn calls Louisiana home.
