About the Book
Gift ideas for men and women, this nature photography book has Christian inspiration and family values. Appetizers of light advice, scripture verses and prayers offer spiritual encouragement and stimulate hunger for the Word. It points the reader to go outside, look up [to God], refresh, rise above life’s stress, changes and day-to-day issues. Walking outdoors is free natural therapy with benefits of exercise, time to think, cry, pray, plan, dream and celebrate God’s creation. The setting is a 5-mile walk south of Solomon in Dickinson County, Kansas. Imagine it wherever you are: park, woodlands, mountains, river, lake, farm or prairie. The inspirational book designed for adults is similar to illustrated picture books for children — easy to read, colorful and uplifting. It’s for individuals, couples, married men and women in traditional families who lead busy lives. Christians who desire to share the religious spirituality of faith can give this book as gifts or write a personal note inside the cover and use it in place of greeting cards to inspire others who enjoy nature and appreciate art. It makes wonderful birthday, engagement, wedding, anniversary, fathers/mothers day, Christmas and holiday gifts for married couple, children, parents, grandparents, in-laws, friends and relatives. Please note: this ISBN 9781320458795 is the updated print edition; print-on-demand (POD) processing may take a day or two. The Digital Edition is available exclusively at the author’s website as a pdf file.
