About Book

There’s a Change
a Coming

Bob Skelton was born in Zenith, West Virginia, with his humble start to life. Bob was born in his grandmother’s home, and the delivering physician was given two chickens in payment. Humbling would be an understatement. This might bring a chuckle from most of the younger readers today. Readers might even question if this were really true. I can assure you it is. When Bob was five years old, his family relocated to Winston Salem, North Carolina, where Bob went to grade school and high school. After high school, Bob was drafted into the army for two years. Bob spent eighteen months of this time in Okinawa, which is off the east coast of China. After returning home from the military, Bob entered the prosthetic program at Bowman-Grey School of Medicine in Winston Salem for two years and then transferred to Duke Medical Center for two years. With the completing of his schooling and passing the American boards for certification, Bob and Sue then moved to Florence, South Carolina, to begin practicing his profession. After a couple of years, Bob was contacted by a couple of friends to start a floor covering business, which they did. When the big recession of the late 1970s -1980s hit, Bob nearly lost it all. The school of “hard knocks” didn’t get Bob down. He rose from the ashes a smarter, shrewder man. From the lessons he learned during this difficult time, Bob was able to build a highly successful medical business, flying to larger cities and making his state-of-art services timelier for the patients. This different way of doing business made it necessary for Bob to get more pilot training by get- ting his Multi-Engine Instrument rating. While acting as pilot, Bob has now accumulated total time in excess of 3,600 hours. Bob was able to purchase one single-engine and three twinengine aircrafts. This also opened up many doors to use his flying skills to fly physician friends, NASCAR drivers, governors, and Lt. governors. It also allowed Bob’s family to travel almost weekly. Bob has served on the Florence Airport Authority for eleven years, as chairman of the
Florence Airport Authority for two years, and on other financial boards at his church and property owner- ship. Bob and his wife, Sue, were married in 1974. On occasion, they enjoy letting other pilots handle the flying duties as they travel around the world to unique destinations. They have been privileged to visit their son, Grant; daughter-in-law, Rebecca; and three grandchildren, Harrison, Suzanne, and Adelle in Hong Kong, vacation in Hawaii, and tour Europe. I would think this has been a pretty exciting life for Bob, a little two-chicken baby from Zenith, West Virginia. Bob, a.k.a. “two-chicken baby,” has come a long way and led a pretty exciting life since his early days in West Virginia. Now, in his sunset years, Bob is focused on sharing “The Amazing Power of an Encourager” TM with you so you can receive the immense joy that has helped him throughout his entire life. Most importantly, Bob wants you to share “The Amazing Power of an Encourager” TM with others so they can experience the blessing of encouragements from someone who truly cares. I want to invite you to be a part of the team in making a difference by allowing us to send updates and news so you are well informed next.

America At The

What people are saying

Bob has been a friend for twenty years or more. He has run
many things by me over the years for my advice. We have also
flown many miles together in his plane across America as I
was doing autograph sessions. I have been able to learn his
passion for this country and the division that exists. He has
shared his time with me; now it’s my turn to tell you about my
friend and our concern for this country. This book on
encouragement is the key to building up people instead of
tearing them down, and that will create an environment for
Americans to unite. If we do not come together, this country
cannot and will not stand as a free nation. Join us as we fight.
We can never give up. As Bob says in his book, “When we are
so divided, nothing else really matters.” Look around. I agree!

  • Cale Yarborough
    3 TimeNASCAR Champion

This is a book all about change; change that is imperative to
growth. This is not a book to be read. It is one to be absorbed,
and if you give it the opportunity, it will make each and every
one of you better…and who doesn’t want that?!

  • André Bauer
    87th Lt. Governor of South Carolina

Bob, you originally conceived the book, “The Amazing Power
Of An Encourager” for America, but as an international
missionary, I can quickly say it is for the whole world because
everyone everywhere and every day needs encouragement in
what they do. This certainly energizes them to do that and
more, still assuming they’re doing it for the lifting up of all
humanity. As you say, it will make you a better you.
