SAN ANTONIO — It’s only been a little more than a year.
Still, Vale’ssa Winslow remembers the exact date, remembers vividly how God had strategically flashed before her eyes a bird’s eye view of an extremely vital chapter in her life.
“As a little girl, I always knew I would tell
my story,” Winslow told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I just didn’t know how.”
Much to her delight, her Creator provided her with a spiritual blueprint, of sorts, a figurative roadmap, if you will, particularly with regards to sharing with the masses her life-changing story.
For Winslow, what she describes as her test had ultimately become her testimony on November 16, 2016.
“God spoke to my spirit that I was ready to tell my truth,” Winslow explained. “I questioned God, and He said, ‘It’s time.’ He said, ‘It’s been 13 years since your husband committed suicide. It’s time to tell your truth.’ And so I did on Facebook.”
The rest, as they say, was history.
That’s because it wasn’t long after Winslow had shared before the social media universe her story that her testimony had eventually given way to becoming a ministry, in large part because of her vulnerability and transparency over losing her companion to such tragedy — a development that transpired when her daughter was a tender age of 12 and her twin sons were seven.
“The only mode of survival was my faith, which carried me through the most heart wrenching time of our lives,” Winslow said.
Today, unlike never before, Winslow deemed it essential to apply her tear-jerking testimonies to a written document, considering she is a few months removed from having witness the release of her books entitled, Rape The Silencer: Good Girls Don’t Tell Until Now and Rape The Silencer: Work The Book.

Powered by Indie Author, because Winslow is responsible for publishing her own books, both projects officially hit the market on October 27, 2017.
The featured project, though it is comprised of only 47 pages, but has resulted in wave of five-star reviews for Winslow, covers serious subjects that expose sexual and adolescent abuse, leadership and development, among other pertinent issues.

As expected, Winslow said, the feedback since her book’s much-anticipated release has been “remarkable and inspiring” for the most part.
A longtime resident of San Antonio, Winslow is widely known also as a motivational speaker, life coach, and a beloved Air Force veteran who served her country for more than two decades.
Aside from the constant rave reviews, her books have given way to an array of media coverage, most notably a recent radio interview that was aired in more than 170 countries.
“Sad, powerful, and courageous,” said Winslow, assessing the feedback she’s garnered. “The readers want more because it is a short read of (47) pages.”
While Winslow needed approximately nine months to assemble her books, Winslow acknowledged that other written documents are on the horizon.
“There will be more to Rape The Silencer: Good Girls Don’t Tell Until Now, and I will plan to write more books in the near future,” she said. “Stay tuned.”
