Author Biography

In 2007, Alexys founded The Fiery Sword Global Ministries. The Sovereign Lord is both [holy fire] that refines His bride by burning that which defiles her, as well as the Sword of the Spirit that cuts off that which hinders her from becoming the perfection of Christ.

Alexys was born “Terri Lynn Roth” but legally changed her name to “Alexys Vaulkenroth” in January 2000. She is first and foremost an ambassador in chains for Christ. Secondly, she is a wife and mother. Beyond that, she is a minister, author, orator and muralist. While living in Saudi Arabia in 1996, she began reproducing and selling her pointillism “doodles”. Her most popular was the camel, hence, The Camel’s Brush. Upon her return to the states in 1997, she began painting murals in homes and businesses. Beginning in 2006, she spent 3 years preaching Sunday services, teaching Bible studies and conducting one-on-one counseling in female prisons. She became an ordained minister in 2008. Currently, she ministers to people across the globe via TV, radio, internet, phone, one-on-one counseling and teaching Sunday school. She also travels to speaking engagements such as conferences, seminars, retreats, book signings and other scheduled events. Her priority in this life is simply to daily die to self and live unto God in everything always. In this condition, Christ is free to move [through] her instead of feeling she has to constantly force Him onto others. Christ is her [freedom] instead of a [taskmaster of bondage].

Alexys message is clear and concise. She leads people to personal accountability through the [love] of Christ, never [condemnation], because His love is what ushers wholeness and restoration; that anyone can be restored when they are willing to submit to the obedience and heart of Christ.

Her heart is simply that of Luke 4:18-19: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”

"Holy Spirit Who: Discovering and Getting to Know the Person of Holy Spirit" by Alexys V. Wolf is a spiritual journey to discover who the Holy Spirit is and the role the Spirit plays in our lives. Much like the author I grew up in a mainstream traditional denomination where the spirit was stifled. We rarely ever discussed the spirit. I grew up very uncomfortable with such talk. I praise God that it is no longer true. Scripture tells us that the Holy Spirit was sent to dwell within us and to be our comforter. He lives within us. This is where the Trinity comes in: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Much of what Mrs. Wolf leads the reader toward is total submission to the will of the Lord. Let's face it: most of us are not sure we want to submit. In fact we know we don't want to submit; it seems to be against our human nature. We want to be independent and self sufficient. What we have forgotten is that God created everything and without Him we would not be here. Wolf defines who the Spirit is and the role it plays in our lives. I particularly enjoyed the section on the Fruit of the Spirit. I was also very interested in Chapter 11: Angels and Demons: Do You Really Believe? “The common Christian has become desensitized about the spirit realm and its validity in today's society.” Wolf points out that Satan has accomplished his task by desensitizing Christians.

Mrs. Wolf's book is well-organized and well-researched. She uses much scripture to back up her thesis. She ends each chapter with a prayer. This book's format is a reference guide.I can see many uses for this book. First the average Christian would greatly benefit from the knowledge between the front and back cover. Secondly, pastors and teachers would find this book a great resource for their lessons. Mrs. Wolf obviously spent much time in research and definitely knows her subject. This is one book Christians do not want to miss.

This book is definitely a 5! All three of Alexys' books are a must read because they have answers to questions I've had for a long time but don't get answered in church. Holy Spirit Who? is all about the person of Holy Spirit and she teaches how to be led by Him instead of our emotions. It is very detailed as has a lot of Scripture references.

Helen Askins

This book is AMAZING! She absolutely has insight that I've never even thought about and I've been in church almost my whole life. I use all three of her books as study guides. I refer to them over and over. I recommend all of her books as MUST READ. Holy Spirit Who?, Looking for God, and What was God Thinking?, are books that are for anyone looking to grow deeper into the heart of Christ.

Janice Jamison

This book is super! You can read it and read it and still come away with something new! It is a must read for certain for anyone wanting to rise higher in Christ. It is informative, thought provoking as well as very easy to read. Alexys is clear and concise with everything she writes. It is for anyone seeking more of their intimate walk with Christ. I recommend her other two books also: What was God Thinking: Why Adam had to Die, and, Looking for God: Spiritual Intimacy and a Personal Relationship with Christ. They also are excellent reads.

Patsy Garrison

I would give this book a higher rating if I could! It is so marvelous! Alexys covers in depth things I've never thought about before. It really makes the reader think. It is not meant to be a fast read or one you read to fall asleep. You need to be wide awake and ready for all she expounds upon. It is wonderful and I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking a new place in Christ.

Pamela Rogers

This is one book you can never get enough of! Each time you read these God inspired words you gain wisdom. I Praise God for His leading Alexys to write "Holy Spirit Who" and all of her books.
