Picking up this book actually lifted emotional weight from my shoulders. At a time when we are often bombarded with devastating news and stories of opposition and violence, Walk Out Walk On took my hand and led me through seven stories that have the capacity to rejuvenate the human spirit.

As the title suggests, Walk Out Walk On features seven communities that have “walked out of limiting beliefs and assumptions and walked on to create healthy and resilient communities.” They are stories of adversity and creativity. And the stories are as diverse as the locations: from South Africa to Columbus, Ohio and from India to Brazil. The stories are told by those in the communities with colorful pictures to shape your imagination.

Rejuvenate your spirit with happy stories today and order this book now!
