William H. Cox was born and raised in Idaho. Much of his
life he has surrounded himself with wilderness, living and working in the back country of Idaho and
Montana. On July 28, 1996, the Lord changed Bill’s direction in life
supernaturally. Since then the Lord has led Bill on a wild ride of various
trials that have not always been enjoyable, and which Bill prefers to describe as, “being drug through.”
Bill, with heels dug in deep, has reluctantly endured city life and his hesitation to change direction has added color to his writing.
The Lord called Bill to write his first book, Skies are Not
Cloudy All Day, in 2015. Bill’s descriptive writing style and unique sense of
humor has encouraged others who are going through hard times, many of whom are living on the street, in Gospel
Rescue Missions, and in prison ministries across the United States.
When asked about the success of the Skies book Bill had this
to say: “Your testimony is a powerful thing, unique to only yourself. I believe
that we are all called to share our testimony to others, but my lifestyle does
not permit me to reach many folks. By writing this book for people to read God
has allowed me to share my testimony with people I typically would never have
the pleasure of running into. From the letters that I have received it has had such
a powerful impact. Never underestimate what the Lord has done in your life. God
has someone out there that needs to hear your
story and I would like to encourage everyone to share their testimony, however and
whenever they can.”
Bill has also written A Dog’s Love about two cow dogs and a
Dachshund that have reflected the unconditional love that God has for us. Both
the Skies book and A Dog’s Love are used in ministry from an outreach to home
group studies. Both are available at www.rustyironranchllc.com.
William H. Cox is also in the process of publishing two
other books recently written. Both are fiction. A Deceptive Reality is about a
small rancher and his family in southern Idaho and the deception and compromise
that is currently spreading through the churches across this country.
The Woodshed, his other work in progress and is geared more towards men's discipleship and
what God expects from men as the spiritual leaders in their families.
Bill currently resides in northern Idaho, near Sandpoint, with
his faithful dog, Cowgirl.
