We Stood Upon Stars Finding God in Lost Places by Roger W. Thompson


We Stood Upon Stars


Finding God in Lost Places

by Roger W. Thompson

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.

My Thoughts:

Set your sights on adventure and get ready to be still in the presence of God as you go on an adventure of a life-time with the one who is full of adventures. In the book "Finding God in the Lost Places" you'll love this collection of essays written by the author that is perfect as you begin to plan road trips for upcoming summer travel plans. I love how he tells the stories of his childhood or previous generations. I love how he talks about the stories of his children now. This book is fun and is creative. I love hearing how he sees the world through his travel experiences and as a person who loves to travel, I found this book to be inspiring and encouraging. This is definitely a book I will pull out this summer again for inspiration. I highly recommend this book if you are a traveler and give this book 4/5 stars. Thank you to the Publisher for providing me a complimentary copy for review purposes.
