Reflections on the Appalachian Trail: One Woman's Journey of Faith (Paperback)
My interest in the Appalachian Trail (AT) began as a travel adventurer, but as I experienced God's Nature touching my soul and renewing my spirit, the AT hiking trips became a series of faith journeys over 25 years. AT enthusiasts will enjoy detailed Trail descriptions and 30 photos of the Trail. Each one of the 40 reflection devotionals addresses a specific experience in my spiritual growth journey. The devotionals are grounded in scriptural quotes. Every devotional includes personal Trail experiences and AT stories of other trekkers. A closing prayer follows the devotional. A question then guides the reader to further personal thoughts. I hiked 2,000 AT miles More importantly, I found answers to my quest; a life journey grounded in trusting Jesus Christ.
