Welcome to High Adventure Living!  Life is about adventure, the constant moving forward through new terrain in everyday living. Your adventure could be a new relationship, a challenging workplace, raising kids or hanging from a rock wall on a high mountain. No matter which, we often find ourselves outside our experience, in new territory, in need of resources. Hope for something more is what High Adventure Living is all about. Let me explain…

In 1979, on North America’s highest peak, Denali, while working as a Mountain Guide with my guide service, Mountain Trip, I had an experience that changed my life forever. Exhausted from rescues, storms and sickness I came to the end of myself and my strength. I was sure I would die there on the mountain. Instead, as I said my goodbyes to my wife and committed myself to continuing on to reunite with my group of guided clients trapped in a high-altitude storm above I found a supernatural strength and a peace that was not my own. That strength carried me through a hellish week of storms and danger. I write about the experience in my recently released book, “An Alaskan Life of High Adventure,” with Tate Publishing.

God showed up. And that experience convinced me there are resources far beyond our normal limits. With His help, we can do far more than we ever thought possible! But, to get there requires a willingness to adventure, to press your limits, to go beyond your comfort-zone. There is so much to be learned out there. Let’s go!

Remember in the Valley what you have seen on the Mountaintop!

“One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memories of what one saw higher up.”   Rene’ Daumal

Life is filled with peaks and valleys, triumphs and seeming disasters. So often we find ourselves overwhelmed and questioning whether we really experienced that previous great moment, Did that really happen? When we find ourselves in a dark place, struggling to plow through pain or difficulties it’s vitally important to remember what we saw from the heights or we can get lost, not being able to see the forest for the trees!

Psalm 121 speaks to this: I will lift up my eyes to the mountains. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth.

The greatest blessings and challenges that have come to me recently have come  through the writing of An Alaskan Life of High Adventure. Finding myself facing a current challenge in life, the Lord asks me, “Do you really believe what you wrote in that book? He causes me to consider how He has delivered me in miraculous ways from past life-threatening problems and I am encouraged to trust Him for both today and tomorrow.

The effect of remembering the mountaintop is a refreshed faith, a “Peace that passes all understanding,” and freedom from fear and worry in the valley.
