Summary
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 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 with his wife and young sons 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
