Thelma Wells has known a lifetime of achievements and victories over obstacles, as well as a wealth of meaningful relationships and abundant ministry to countless others. But recently, God led her into dark valleys–including an almost fatal illness–as part of His plan to deepen her firsthand knowledge of Himself as the Great I AM. This rich experience is what she shares with you, along with plenty of smiles and laughter, in God Is Not Through with Me Yet.
She’s the first to say, “Thelma doesn’t have it all together. No one has it all together.” But the Lord has filled her heart to overflowing with new appreciation for His loving wisdom and His healing truth. It’s an overflow that spills out, with clarity, and humor, on every page of this book.
With personal stories and solid biblical teaching that open your heart to God’s truth, Thelma guides you to a deeper faith and an exuberant desire to follow your Lord…even through your life’s most turbulent storms. With the warmth of a grandmother, the wit of a jokester, and the wisdom of a woman in the Word, Thelma opens your eyes to the full wholeness God has for you.
About the Author
"Freedom," says Thelma Wells, "comes when you are not dependent on any human being to design your life and your attitude for you; when you realize nobody is responsible for your happiness but you." She should know! Thelma overcame childhood abuse and poverty to become the happy, successful woman you see today. The first black woman to become an Assistant Vice President of a commercial bank, Thelma went on to organize an international speaking and consulting company (for which she received the Small Business Administration's Entrepreneur of the Year Award), earn a master's degree, and become a college professor. Last year Thelma was awarded an honorary doctorate - but she says we don't have to call her "Dr. Wells." Her new book, "What These Girls Knew, "takes a look at women in the Bible and what they have to tell us today. Thelma and husband George live in Texas, enjoying their children and grandchildren.
