On The Edge – A solo hiker's journey
Filled with disappointment and confusion, a solo hiker travels 2,000 miles away from her home in the mountains of Sedona, Arizona, in search of peace. While on the trails in the wilderness and mountains, the hiker meets people and experiences situations that can only be credited as an amazing intervention from God.
With a different experience each day, the four-day vacation prepares the hiker for a new beginning. Although in search of peace, she finds something that will continue to be with her for the rest of her life: religion. Feeling as if God has wrapped his arms around her, the hiker spends the next four days seeking a relationship with Jesus. By the last day, she feels the overwhelming need to write- write about everything that she experienced in the wilderness and mountains of Sedona. No longer feeling "On The Edge," the hiker retells her incredible story in the hope of bringing others peace, contentment, and a stronger relationship with our Lord and Savior.
