Finding Our Way Through the Wilderness

Finding Our Way Through the Wilderness

This life will eventually carry us through a wilderness, a period of life epitomized by hard- ships, suffering, wandering, and grief. The wilderness can also be a time to withdraw from the world, to give up something of significance in order to think, pray, read, and gain spiritual insight on life.

Finding Our Way Through the Wilderness of Life is designed to help those who are in a wilderness by no choice of their own and those who choose to enter the wilderness to prepare spiritually for the arrival of Easter or the next part of their journey. Readers will emerge from the wilderness stronger, healthier, wiser, and better equipped to continue on their way.

Written so plainly that a child will understand, yet laced with the kind of depth and history that scholars will embrace. What an extraordinary achievement that is!

The simple straightforward stories of the Lenten journeys are spellbinding and captivating. The prayers are refreshing and penetrating and the total journey is a delight. I cannot wait to use it as a guide at Lent or even on my next spiritual retreat. Wow, what a great read and adventure! This is a great addition to my own journey.

If ever the world were a wilderness, it would be today. Economic and social unrest have created a maze with confusing twists and turns. More than a GPS to guide us, we need a sense of spiritual direction and the confidence to find our way, with His help. In Michael Helms and Erica Cooper’s Finding Our Way Through the Wilderness, the safe route is clearly defined. Just as our GPS speaks to us, their masterful storytelling offers a calming assurance that we can navigate through the wilderness. I didn’t read it once. I read it twice. And I’ll read it again. It’s that good.
