Wilkerson’s new book, My Friend the Wind, ($9.99, paperback, 978-1-49-849119-8; $20.99, hardcover, 978-1-49-849120-4; $4.99, e-book, 978-1-49-849121-1) is a beautifully illustrated children’s book carrying the overall message that God is ever present—like the wind He created. Wilkerson’s book not only teaches children about God, but also explains the message in an age appropriate, easy to understand message for the young adolescent age group.

“On a quiet fall day in November of 2014, when I least expected it, God gave me this story and title,” states the author. “This book helps youngsters and preteens listen to the wind and to the voice of our loving Creator and it encourages them to have a relationship with him. It also let's them know that everyone and everything God created is precious to him.”
