Millions of people watched “Liz Chandler” every day on the iconic soap Days Of Our Lives. Gloria Loring is the recording artist of the #1 hit song “Friends and Lovers”, co-composer of television theme songs for Diff’rent Strokes and Facts Of Life, an audience favorite as Liz Chandler on Days Of Our Lives, and a spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. After her four-year-old son was diagnosed with diabetes, she created and self-published two volumes of the Days Of Our Lives Celebrity Cookbook, which raised more than $1 million for diabetes research. Loring’s musical show “TV Tunez”, a celebration of television’s best theme songs that earned standing ovations, is in development for a Las Vegas run. She is currently in the studio with producer Ted Perlman and songwriting legends Burt Bacharach and Desmond Child. She sings regularly to sold-out shows, including with The Palm Beach Pops Symphony. The Miss America Organization gave her the Woman of Achievement Award, an honor she shares with past recipients Barbara Bush, Roslyn Carter, and Hillary Clinton. She is listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women. Did I also mention that Gloria is also the mother of one of R&B’s biggest names Robin Thicke?
Here is a great synopsis of her incredible new book “Coincidence Is God’s Way of Remaining Anonymous: Reflections on Daytime Dramas and Divine Intervention”
“Ten million daily viewers loved her as Liz Chandler on the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Yet while the cameras rolled and the fictional plotline for Days unfolded each day, Loring was quietly wrestling with her own real-life dramas—the diagnosis of her young son’s diabetes, the unraveling of her marriage, and a nagging inner voice from childhood that told her something was wrong. Coincidence Is God’s Way of Remaining Anonymous is Loring’s spiritual exploration of how coincidence helped her make sense of life’s challenges and uncertainties.
Coincidence helped her raise $1 million for diabetes research; it arrived in the form of mysterious letters during her separation and eventual divorce from actor-writer Alan Thicke; and it helped her discover and then heal from the trauma of long-forgotten childhood sexual abuse. It also brought her a chance encounter with the man she is married to today.
With eloquence and humor, Loring takes readers on a quest for a deeper understanding of life’s journey and the role coincidence plays in all of our lives, revealing that even the most difficult circumstances can be beneficial. Her experiences may be just the evidence readers need to begin watching more closely what they are attracting and what they are running from in their own lives. While coincidences may appear to come out of the blue, Loring suggests that we can all play a starring role in their appearance.
“For years, I’d been waiting for someone else to make (my life) better. You’d have thought I was starring in “The Perils of Pauline.” In truth, I wasn’t a victim, I was a volunteer. . . . Coincidence gave me an experience of the lesson I needed to learn: You don’t have to wait for someone to save you.” From Coincidence Is God’s Way of Remaining Anonymous.”
