In the pages of Take Someone with You to Heaven, Carol Middlekauff of Austin, Texas, tells personal stories about sharing the love of Jesus. As an ordinary person, she writes to ordinary readers, showing them how easy personal evangelism can be. Each story demonstrates the extraordinary things God does in and through anyone who is willing to share His love and the good news about Jesus. Praise God, that anyone can be you! Are you going to heaven? Will you take someone with you?
Born in Amarillo, Texas, Carol Middlekauff stands five feet tall, 110 pounds, with green eyes, chin-length gray hair, and glasses. Retired from the insurance business, she doesn’t really look like a runner, a writer, or someone who might spend time in jail. And she isn’t a preacher. She’s just an ordinary person. But she and her (also ordinary) husband, Chuck, head out from their home in Austin, Texas, to share their faith as they go along—at the grocery store, on the running trail, by gas pumps, and in prisons and jails across the United States.
Middlekauff received her teaching degree from the University of Texas. And she’s an incurable writer and traveler. You may have seen her travel, profile, and insurance articles in publications such as American Cowboy, New Mexico, Rough Notes and other magazines, or the Dallas Morning News, Kansas City Star, Boston Herald, San Jose Mercury News, New Orleans Picayune, and other newspapers. As she began to write down some of the stories of the amazing things God does as she and her husband share their faith, those stories became a teaching book, Take Someone with You to Heaven.
Here’s why. Most preachers and pastors tell us to go and do God’s Great Commission, but they don’t explain just how to do it. So, most Christians don’t do it. Middlekauff’s prayer is that the stories in Take Someone with You to Heaven will encourage you to go and do His Great Commission by showing you how easy it is. It is easy— because God does all the work! All you have to do is show up, prayed up and ready to do His will. And just do it.
