INTERVIEW | Rodney Winters

Rodney, describe yourself for our visitors.

I am a father of two. I have a passion for teaching and preaching, and a burden for seeing hurting people made whole. I am a laid-back person who enjoys listening to gospel music. I stay busy with family, ministry, teaching at the college level, and entrepreneurial endeavors.

How do you find time to connect with God?

I have to make time to connect with God. Otherwise, I would never find time. I have a hectic daily schedule, so it’s important to prioritize time with God. I’m currently reading through the Bible again this year, although I admit I am behind schedule.

Do you have a favorite bible verse and or quote you wish to share?

My favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 33:3 – Call unto me and I will answer thee and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not. (KJV) That is a promise that keeps me motivated.

Tell us about your current book, Go Into The House.

Go Into The House relates my story of a failed marriage and divorce process to the older brother in the biblical story of the prodigal son. Like the older brother, I experienced disappointment because I felt my circumstances were unfair. I write openly about the painful truths of relationships from a man’s perspective.   Go Into The House is a gripping account of hope, healing and the keeping power of God. The book is for anyone who has faced a significant disappointment in life—marital or otherwise.

What influenced you to write this book?

The origin of this book was a personal journal I wrote as a form of therapy. I realized that there are many people who can be helped and encouraged by my story. I don’t know of many men who have shared these kinds of experiences, but I know I’m not alone.

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

1. There is hope after life’s disappointments.

2. We have a choice to make to either, “go into the house” and enjoy the benefits of God’s presence, or stay outside and wallow in self-pity.

What’s next for you?

I am working on a companion workbook for Go Into The House, designed for discussion and counseling groups, and book clubs. I am constantly marketing this book and working on ideas for my next book project.
