All over the world and within all cultures and religions, a profound tenet exists that supports a common connection among all peoples. In one phrasing or another, the spiritual principle known as the Golden Rule has been taught for centuries: “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” In The Simple Little Rule: The Golden Rule Rediscovered, author Mike Ellerkamp shares his spiritual, philosophical, and historical journey as he brings to life once again this simple yet profound rule.

In today’s world climate, it is more important now than ever for us to rediscover this simple little rule. And because embracing the Golden Rule can change our present perceptions and motivate us to work to change our own futures, it makes the Golden Rule a simple little rule so powerful it could even change the world.


Mike Ellerkamp is a husband, father, grandfather, and cancer survivor, and in the 1970’s he served both in the US Air Force and in the US Army as an Airborne Ranger with the First Battalion, Seventy-Fifth Infantry.

His greatest hope with The Simple Little Rule is to reintroduce the power and passion of the wisdom of ancient philosophers and teachers expressing God’s mission statement—to love thy neighbor as thyself!

Mike and his wife, Mollie, live today in Houston, Texas, with their two dogs, Corky and Coco Man, and they enjoy traveling and skiing.
