Publisher's Summary

Willie Johnson.

Granddaughter of a slave.

Rejected by her father.

Sold by her mother.

Abused by her husband.

How did a biracial woman become accepted to preach revivals in the Deep South and coast to coast during segregation and the Civil Rights movement? How did she rise above abuse, social stigma, and cultural limitations to step with anointing and confidence into pulpits all across America with her majestic cape swirling about her shoulders?

From the 1930s to the 1980s, Sister Willie's powerful ministry intermingled song, Scripture, and a unique demonstration of spiritual gifts that were unusual in her day. Everywhere she ministered, she was beloved and highly esteemed, and lives were changed. 

Listen to Through the Waters and learn how to rise above your obstacles from the inspiring life and ministry of Willie Johnson.

This was like reading one of the gospels!

The life of Willie Johnson encouraged me to keep pressing onward like a good Christian solider.
