about this item

Get Lost. . . and Find What Really Matters  We are made for freedom and adventure, friendship and romance. Yet too much of life is spent unfulfilled at work, restless at home, and bored at church.  All the while knowing there is something more. You’ll find some of life’s best moments waiting for you over a campfire, on a river—even in that coffee shop or brewery you didn’t know you’d discover along the way. It’s time to begin the search.   In the literary spirit of well-worn tales about America’s open road, this poetic, honest, often hilarious collection of essays shows how to embark on adventures that kindle spiritual reflection, personal growth, and deeper family connections.   From surfing California’s coastlines, stargazing southwestern deserts, and fly-fishing in remote mountains of Montana, you’ll be inspired to follow the author’s footsteps and use the hand-drawn maps from each chapter to plan your own trips.  There you will hear God’s voice – and it may help you find what you’re searching for.  “We search mountaintops and valleys, deserts and oceans, hoping sunrises and long views through the canyons will help us discover who we are, or who we still want to be.  The language of our hearts reflects that of creation because in both are fingerprints of God.”—Roger W. Thompson

I really enjoyed reading Roger’s newest book. The cover, alone, drew me in with the VW camper. It has been my dream for awhile to have a VW camper—to live simply, enjoying the company of my family in nature, and exploring the land God has blessed us with. The book did not disappoint. Everyday I look...see moreof the reviewer's review

"We Stood Upon Stars" pulls the reader into a world of love and nature, growth and grace. It forced me to create a mental list of truly what is most important in my life and in this world: seeing the beauty in places, in people, in our Creator.

My love of the outdoors and road trips made this book a lot of fun to read. It made me want to plan my next trip and head out for some places that I still have yet to travel. The hand-drawn maps gave me plenty of ideas about where to visit. Roger wrote this book with plenty of humor and insight, mak...see moreof the reviewer's review
