By Ruth Mizell as told to Jeff Wright

A True Story of Romance, Adventure,
Humor and Spiritual Lessons

Ruth Mizell served as campaign chairman in Corpus Christi,
Texas for George Herbert Walker Bush for two of his political
campaigns, starting with the race for U.S. Senate in 1964, and for U.S. President in 1980.

She also served as campaign chairman in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1978 and 1982 for Bill Clements, the first
Republican Governor of Texas, and in 1984 as co-chairman for Phil Gramm for U.S. Senate.

In 1984 Ruth moved to Washington, D.C. and later served under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Herbert Walker Bush as adviser to the U.S. Peace Corps.

During her years in Washington, D.C. she has served as
liaison to the White House for American Christian Trust and on the Board of Directors for the National Prayer Embassy.

Ruth has also been an active worker and/or leader in several other Christian ministries, including A.D. 2000, Campus Crusade, Every Home For Christ, Joni and Friends and Nora Lam Ministries.

In 1994 she became active in Capitol Hill Prayer Partners and
became their liaison to the Capitol. In 2004 she was asked to
represent the National Council on Bible Curriculum in the Public Schools and became a Board Member in 2005.

God has given her twenty years in politics and twenty years of
praying for our nation. Ruth praises Him daily for His favor and grace.

Meanwhile, Ruth has continued mission trips throughout the
world: South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Europe, Russia, China, Southeast Asia, South America and Israel.

From 1991 until he passed away in 1999, Ruth was married
to Wilmer Mizell, a retired World Series-winning baseball pitcher and three-term U.S. congressman and political appointee under three U.S. Presidents.

Ruth has a large extended family, including children, stepchildren, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Five generations have loved and served the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jeff Wright is pastor of Victory World Outreach Church, the
host church for the National Prayer Embassy in the Washington, D.C. area.

He first met Ruth Mizell in 1985 at American Christian
Trust in D.C., and from 1988 to 1992 they served together on the founding Board of Directors for the National Prayer Embassy.

Since 1992 Ruth has been a special advisor for the National
Prayer Embassy, which Jeff has directed during that time.

Jeff invited Ruth to bring the main Sunday morning message to his church on April 17, 2005, which became the basis for this book.

This book will help three kinds of people:

1) those going through transitions, trusting
God to bring them through to the other side;

2) those being challenged by God to pray
for nations, leaders and world events; and

3) those wanting to grow more spiritually.

God's hand was obvious in bringing this book
into existence. We hope you have as much fun
reading it as we did writing it!

Bush in the White House in 1985, telling him that rather
than a political appointment or politics, she'd like to focus
on praying for him.
