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.
 
“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

This was an unexpectedly enjoyable read. I've read many travel memoirs and some of them get a bit muddled when involving the issue of faith. I really liked this one though because it interwove a lot of thoughts concerning faith in God as a…

So,when I ordered this, I somehow missed the spiritual aspect of it. I was expecting a travel memoir, and I got that in this book, but there is a lot of God mixed in. I didn't find the religious aspect was rubbed in my face, rather it was…
