About my latest book, The Road Trip: A Travel Guide for Life's Journey
We all have a purpose in this life, but our purpose is not an end result. The journey from our first pitiful cry to our last breath and sigh—the challenging road trip that is life—is what brings us excitement, meaning, and lasting grace. In The Road Trip: A Travel Guide for Life's Journey, teacher and author Kathleen Graviano shares the many lessons she has learned along life's way and helps us discover the skills and attitudes to not only survive our journey but to actually enjoy the ride.While we might embark upon our lifelong road trip without a map or even a destination, Graviano gives us a guide for understanding both in her conversational, insightful style. Each chapter's "travel-log" prompt asks us to relate these universal wisdoms to the twists and turns of our own experience, no matter where we are on the journey. At times, life will have us in the driver's seat, cruising along, and at other times we will have to get out and push. How we learn from the good times, the bad times, and the eternal changes will determine whether we can eventually lean out the window and shout, "Wow—what a ride!"
