The true story of a simple man who has spent his life working amidst the quiet embrace of nature and her animals. Despite the happy normalcy, his soul calls out to him through a series of visions urging him to search for the higher design in his life. His inner voice beckons him out into the wilderness, away from all that he knows and understands, to find the higher meaning of himself.

After nearly a decade of stubborn denial, he removes his self-imposed blindfolds to embark on what is to become his personal journey into the unknown.What he finds will forever change his life.

Instead of meaning, he finds a tempest. Finding courage through his animals he forges onward in search of his own truth.  Is there a greater universal design for each of us? Or is there only chaos and confusion? Your answer lies within, if only you dare to take the journey.

 A Journey Within highlights the duality between both the physical and the spiritual.  It carries a message of courage and inspiration to connect with life and the inner-self, taking the road less traveled, and living authentically.

 

Praise Journey Within by J. Mitchel Baker

“A good book. A REALLY good book. The author has a way with words. He has you thinking you are right there with him. I enjoyed the adventure Mr. Baker. Thank you!  It reminded me somewhat of “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed. It all goes back to, or starts with, “Why do bad things happen to Good People”? I’ve been trying to figure that out myself. I’ve read so many books in an effort to find an answer that I agree with. Some ideas make sense, some do not. I truly hope Mr. Bakers’ journey (s) help him find the answer.”-Kindle Customer

Review by Betty G.

Jeff Baker calls himself a “simple man” but I would beg to differ.  Using his experience with farming and nature, he has crafted an inspirational book.  He shares his challenges with us and how he has changed his life through a journey through nature and a journey within himself.

A journey within one’s self is much harder than whatever nature can throw at you.  At least in my opinion, Jeff Baker takes the journey with courage.  We can all learn something from him.

A Journey Within somewhat reminds me of the book by Cheryl Strayed, Wild.  Fans of Wild are sure to love this book as well but it is really for everyone to enjoy, savor, and receive inspiration.

I give A Journey Within 5 stars.  I received the e-book for my honest review.
