In the crippling agony of grief, disappointment, loneliness, sickness, and broken relationships, healing is available through the power of the Holy Spirit. Skillfully woven throughout these pages is a spiritual road map that will aid readers who seek intimacy with God and a compass for their life’s journey. Share in the extraordinary leap of faith of a newly-wed grandmother who, on short notice, had become an army chaplain’s wife and now embarked with her new husband on his final military assignment abroad a week after they were married.
On the Wings of the Wind is a profoundly biblical easy-to-read story of entering each new phase of life guided by the Holy Spirit. This is a love story: a story of longtime love of spouse and family, the heartbreak of loss, and a new love that binds two people together as they embrace each day with enthusiasm, a sense of mission, and, foremost and center, with the all-encompassing presence of the living God.

“This is the story of Patricia Eytcheson Taylor’s life. It tells of her love for her husband John and how their lives changed each time they moved to another spot in the country. The Holy Spirit was always with them. But when tragedy struck and John was killed, it was almost impossible for Patricia to go on. She wallowed in grief and self-pity. Somewhere in her grief, she had lost her closeness to God, which she desperately needed back. As her heart began to open to God, a new joy came into her life. He was an Army Chaplain named James Taylor. They were married and shortly after they were sent on his last military assignment to the other side of the world. It is a book many people can relate to about lost love and new love found. It is a story for all on the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.”
