“A Touch of Grace” Post Interview Write Up on Author, Elaine Newkirk

A humanitarian is a selfless individual with warming arms that hold those in need of hope tightly.  Their hearts are touched by God’s very Grace, and in the center of their smile all that is divine can be seen.  This description of an Angel best defines an incredible writer who goes by the name of Elaine Newkirk.  She authored the heartwarming book, “The House With Dirt Walls“, and within her inspiring list of accomplishments she is also parent extraordinaire.  With one biological child, she also opened her home up to four pre-adoptive children (with disabilities).  Over the past ten years she has fostered sixty others in a quest to make lives better for youth in need.

Without a doubt, she is extraordinary.  In addition to her novel, she has also written 4 screen plays ( Two feature-length and two television sitcoms).    Her list of accomplishments also include Ordained Minister through The World Council of Independent Christian Churches, and a guest appearance on The Dr. Phil Show.

Her appearance on “A Touch of Grace”  Saturday, December 4th, 2010, had the highest listener numbers since the show’s inception, on September 2nd, 2010.  The hour passed swiftly, and the numerous post show comments have been extremely supportive and positive.  It assures me that the listeners who tuned in were just as intrigued by Elaine’s commitment to the children she takes into her home and into her heart as I was.  

As a result of the interview, we discovered that Elaine’s selfless endeavors include the development of an Autism Camp for children with Autism, the project  W.O.R.D.  (Women Of Renewed Destiny) which assist women in life transitions and we also learned that The Dr. Phil Show donated $50,000 to aide her in her efforts to make life better for the children she cares for.  There were times when she thought about hanging up the towel and shutting the program down, because she didn’t know how she would make it, and by the Grace of God, doors were opening.

By clicking the “Good Search” link below, and visiting the website you have the opportunity of supporting her nonprofit efforts.

Again, all it takes is a click and when the search engine directs you to the site it generates donations to her cause.  Now don’t ask me how it happens, but it does.  The visit alone generates a donation.

Also, proceeds from the sales of her novel “The House With Dirt Walls” go towards her non profit organization, and the Amazon link is also below.

Elaine’s courage and love was an encounter that I will never forget, and she is truly out there doing God’s work, and being a source of light to many.

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
