We Stood Upon Stars by Roger W. Thompson was released May 2, 2017. I truly enjoyed reading this lovely book. Thompson writes a collection of travel essays that share his experiences and deep gratitude for nature to be spiritual. I felt his essays are very relatable and entertaining. This book will make you want to travel over the summer and experience a lot of the same things that Thompson shares through his essays. I feel this would make a great gift for any graduate who is about to venture out into the world. **I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.**
SYNOPSIS: 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.
