Triangle Center for Spiritual Living, North Carolina
"As a minister, Rev. Carol Wilke is deeply aware of and connected to her higher power and is grounded in the spiritual truths of Oneness, Wholeness, and our innate ability to create for ourselves lives that are filled with unconditional Love, unlimited Abundance, boundless Joy, and the Peace that passes all understanding.
As a recovering alcoholic, she brings forward her message with compassion, understanding, acceptance, courage, and commitment. She listens with reverence, speaks with humor and wisdom and stands as a beacon of kindness, gentleness, unconditional love, and peace. She is gifted with the ability to create both mind-blowing events and facilitating a deeply sacred ritual.
When it comes to Rev. Carol Wilke, I would be a part of any ministry she is committed to, be excited to listen to any message that she was giving, and more than willing to attend any event in which she was associated."

"When I hit bottom and could no longer live with my addiction to opiates, there was only one person I ever thought of turning to. Making my phone call to Carol, I was both scared and full of hope. At the end of my call not only did we have a plan but I felt I could see the sky instead of going under. She took me herself to the hospital and the rehab facility.Through all of it she prayed with me and helped me look to the next moment instead of where I was. The day I got out she made sure that I had a plan on where to start my AA programToday I have God in the driver's seat on my road of life and am very blessed to have Carol as a cherished sister in recovery."
