Overcome Challenges through Honor & Healing

Overcome Challenges through Honor & Healing

Overcome Challenges through Honor & Healing. In overcoming challenges, honoring our loved ones allows for healing to occur. By recognizing and cherishing their impact on our lives, we find strength to navigate difficult times. Embracing their memory fosters resilience and promotes emotional healing, enabling us to move forward with grace and gratitude. Through this process, we transform hardships into opportunities for growth, fostering a deeper appreciation for the enduring bonds that sustain us through life's trials.

All of us have crossroads in life, challenges we have to overcome. Those of us who have had the experience of caring for a parent with Alzheimer's seem to have more crossroads and more challenges. Coping with the disease, what it does to everyone's life, even the eventual end, poses decisions and heartache.

How can we honor our loved ones while also healing ourselves? Can we do this while they're still alive? In this episode, I talk to Paul Travers, author of Dancing with the Mountains.

Inspired by his dying father's dream of hiking the Appalachian Trail, Paul hits the trail and finds a miracle in the healing power of American's sacred mountains. More than a travelogue, this is a love story about fathers and sons, families battling Alzheimer's, and the people and places along the Appalachian Trail.

Sprinkled with humor and humanity, Dancing with the Mountains is a spiritual story about love, life, and healing.
