a new book, written by his friend Ruth McElwee.
Here is information on how to get a copy for yourself and Winkie's forward for you to read.
Dear Ruth, I more than loved your book. I cried, I laughed, I loved God with you.
My friends of Second Chapter of Acts were in the audience and sometime later I heard their Prince Song…
"Got a brand-new story though you've heard it a time or two
About a Prince Who kissed a girl right out of the blue
Hey, this story ain't no tale to me now
For the Prince of Peace has given me life somehow
You know what I mean
My sleep is over, I've been touched by His fire,
That burns from His eyes and lifts me higher and higher.
I'll be forever with Him right by my side.
He's coming again on a white horse He'll ride.
He'll clothe me and crown me and make me His bride.
You know what I mean. You know what I mean."
Your gifts from God in poetry, music, singing and journaling are different of course. Horrors and terrors that can fall on an unsuspecting innocent child for her had a different outcome and marked her life forever in a way that you were instead kept and redeemed from by the love and intervention of our Great Lover. You have something to say and give that Janet never did.
Like her, what happened to you told a story in a way that multitudes still need to hear, and all (who for some sad reasons were and perhaps are still hurting) can find a kindred spirit in what was said about what was done. All of us should hear the echo of what has happened to God's poor world and what He can do to reverse the ugly and the angry shadows to restore every Snow White from the wicked Witch and the poisoned apple and to bring back the magic in the fairy tale to every Cinderella with amnesia.

Some of Winkie's Ministry Friends

There’s a huge interest in the supernatural today. Have you ever wondered why?
There’s an increasing popularity with fascinating movies and books that deal with this issue. Beside the oblivious entertainment factors of excitement, adventure and the amazing production values with these things what is driving this phenomenon? Perhaps it’s the fact that many of these amazing books and movies are addressing an underlying hunger that all of us have for truth as well as our individual search for spiritual meaning.
The publishing blockbusters like - Harry Potter and the Hunger Games address issues of empowerment, the struggle against evil and the difficult path heroes must take to find their destiny. Many of us identify with this challenge and hence the growing interest in books like these.
I’ve written Gem Of The Wanderer to delve into many of these questions. The protagonist in my novel faces many of the issues that I’ve just addressed. His personal quest for answers in the imaginary world of Ebbern takes him on the amazing journey into the realm of the supernatural. His quest for answers brings him face to face with overwhelming beauty and hideous evil. As he confronts each of these he discovers that all that’s beautiful is not what it appears and evil may lurk there. His search brings his to an encounter with the ultimate truth and the key that will save his life and the lives of those he loves.
