John Henkels


Born in Minnesota, John was raised in Iowa in the middle of ten children. John’s life trajectory changed the night he met Suzanne on a resort island in Lake Erie, the “Night of Two Moons” in family lore.

It took great tragedy for John to discover his passion for writing. “Samuel’s Mission” delivered not only healing, but brought forth the awareness of the extravagant love that has blessed his life. The father of three sons and for nearly thirty-years, the adoring husband of a woman with a 1000-watt smile, great character, intelligence and a passion for fun. John and Suzanne live in Charlotte, NC and enjoy boating, travel, golf and visiting their sons, Zachary in Atlanta, Jacob in Washington, DC. And of course, Sammy.
