The Walk - A review

The Walk
. From the title - I'm sure you are thinking 2 things
 and I can assure you that neither have to do with this book. No this isn't about Johnny Cash's "Walk the Line" nor the song with the lyrics "And I would walk ten thousand miles and I would walk ten thousand more ..." Though both are good analogies about what "The Walk" is about. You see the "Walk" is an adventure, journey, story, about one couple's journey of walking the Appalachian Trail and how it came to affect their literal walk of faith, life, and reflections on the Christian Walk as well.

Randy Motz and his wife, Georgia Harris aka "Windtalker and Mom" tell the story of their thru hike of the A.T. and its almost 2200 mile journey along the East Coast of the United States.  This book will make you laugh, cry, and reflect on your own mistakes, and how one can better relate to their one faith journey of life.

Randy shares so much of himself and his wife - it helps to know that on our faith journeys to never give up.Don't quit. The end is in mind, and it is called a journey, a race for a reason.

Living near the A.T. and having the opportunity (and honor) of meeting Randy and Georgia - I know this book has challenged me as a church leader to hang in there.

If you ever thinking of hiking the A.T., or have hiked it; or just need some encouragement in your Christian walk - "The Walk." is a good story of how our own stories are a part of God's.

Thank you for the wonderful review of our book. We hope that "The Walk" will inspire many other people, as it has you, to reflect on their walk of faith and view it from an entirely new perspective.
