Off The Beaten Trail
At 18, Jake set out on the path that had been prescribed for him and countless other teenagers around the country: college. But a health issue and an internal conflict surfaced the profound questions that would radically change his life: Why am I here? What is my purpose? Is there more to life than this? With raw honesty and compelling insight, Jake answers these questions and others, exploring what happens when we take a leap of faith in pursuit of our dreams. From the deepest depths of the Guatemalan jungle to being stranded on the mountaintops in Nicaragua, Jake discovers what it means to be alive and awake.
Off the Beaten Trail is a coming-of-age story that illuminates what is possible if we dare to follow our hearts and heed our intuition.
