Journey to the Heartland

A Spiritual Memoir on Life and the Desire for It
Journey to the Heartland

When the author sets out for a month-long journey to the American Heartland, all she knows for certain is that her desire to live from the affirmation of who she is is stronger than anything that might keep her from it. Part travel log, part spiritual memoir, Journey to the Heartland offers a rare and honest look into a life unfolding. Richerson takes readers along for the ride, providing glimpses into a deepening spirituality along with the confrontation of all that might hold us back from touching mystery and miracle. From the Tennessee foothills to the North Woods, the author captures the raw and essential beauty of the country and draws on timelines past, present, and future, as well as images from the natural world, to issue an invitation to our life's unique dance.In the pages of this book, we bear witness to daring adventures with the new and touch on the sacred union of our humanity and divinity. Through the lens of the author's month-long road trip, we are met with snapshots of what it means to be on the way and often surprised with the radiant realization that we are more than who we think we are.
