Get Lost. . . and Find What Really Matters
We are made for freedom and adventure, friendship and romance. Yet too much of life is spent unfulfilled at work, restless at home, and bored at church. All the while knowing there is something more. You’ll find some of life’s best moments waiting for you over a campfire, on a river—even in that coffee shop or brewery you didn’t know you’d discover along the way. It’s time to begin the search.
In the literary spirit of well-worn tales about America’s open road, this poetic, honest, often hilarious collection of essays shows how to embark on adventures that kindle spiritual reflection, personal growth, and deeper family connections.
From surfing California’s coastlines, stargazing southwestern deserts, and fly-fishing in remote mountains of Montana, you’ll be inspired to follow the author’s footsteps and use the hand-drawn maps from each chapter to plan your own trips. There you will hear God’s voice – and it may help you find what you’re searching for.
“We search mountaintops and valleys, deserts and oceans, hoping sunrises and long views through the canyons will help us discover who we are, or who we still want to be. The language of our hearts reflects that of creation because in both are fingerprints of God.”
—Roger W. Thompson
Can I get this out of the way first??? I really loved this book. There its off my chest I feel better.
I love listening to people’s stories. Things that happened to them. That shaped them, helped them become who they are. Thompson’s book We Stood Upon Stars is such a refreshing and humorous read that I couldn’t put it down.
I will admit my favorite story was the one where the crab clamped down on his toe. It just reminded me so much of when my husband broke his baby toe and it took him down. My husband the football player size, nothing scares him, fix anything, type of guy went into shock because he busted his baby toe. So I could totally picture Thompson screaming as the crab attached to his toe.
This book makes me want to pack up the kids and travel. Find God in the trees and ocean and find God wherever He meets us that day. Because God will meet us wherever we are.
