In her memoir ‘Mountains Into Roads,’ Shawna Kaszer brings readers along in her ’88 Bronco for the road trip adventure of a lifetime. Nearly ten years after losing her mom, Shawna finds herself stuck, the grief from loss still affecting every area of her life: family, career, marriage, friendships. Rather than become a slave to what was, she and her husband pack up their NYC apartment and take off on a cross country adventure to face it all, changing what could be. Memories from her past begin to collide with her present out on the open road, creating powerful opportunities for God to move. And He does! Her encounters with God up the peaks of mountains, diving into frigid cold waters, and crashing down the pits of sand dunes are an invitation to open your heart to Him in new ways as she takes you through grief and healing. This story is drenched with ache and beauty that will grip your heart. Discover what happens when God reflects your own story back to you while riding along on this intimate journey through loss into wholeness and hope renewed.
This isn’t your typical Christian manual with a 3-step guide on how to get through grief. It’s messy, honest, and relatable to anyone who has experienced the many ways loss impacts your life. Shawna’s story captures divine meetings with colorful characters, extraordinary encounters, and magical moments with God that will leave you able to feel your own heart beating again.
‘Mountains Into Roads’ is an invitation to take a great adventure; to go on the journey as God turns one woman’s grief into hope, as He turns her mountains into roads. It started with her ‘yes’ to take the adventure of a lifetime, and now it’s your turn. All you have to do is say ‘yes.’
