How do we best maneuver life’s roads, paths or journeys; so often paved with the travails and triumphs of a barrage of daily evolving circumstances? Do we always know the directions or map to our true north? Is there an IPS (Internal Positioning System) to guide us? In Navigating Life’s Roadways, Deborah L. Parker takes you on a very personal voyage while engaging you with creatively written metaphors of her life’s map of twisting roads, paths, and journeys. Ride along as Parker insightfully and inspirationally navigates the elements of family, relationships, career, faith, health or fun. Learn, cry and laugh with her, as you find yourself exploring the lessons of your own destinations while identifying with her heartfelt narratives. Meet the core people who’ve journeyed with Parker or put up roadblocks. Transit her phases of humbly growing up in a Civil Rights era rural Virginia town, then launching out on pursuits as an army officer, corporate manager and entrepreneur in the story Belief Boulevard, while you experience her setbacks and eventual arrival back to her true north spirit in Valley View. Sharing the warmth and variety of stories found in the renowned Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Parker’s artful accounts of her treks through mountains and pits feeds the reader’s spirit (even throwing in the chicken). This book will guide and encourage you on your smooth or rough roadways ahead.
