    relationships. As a former mean girl, she made her share of mistakes before discovering the
    life-changing power of Finding Value in your life and the lives of those around you.

    Finding Value is packed with scores of real-life strategies you can use immediately to connect more
    authentically with others. Discover effective ways to establish boundaries, to see the merits in
    differing opinions, and to contribute with confidence.

    From deciphering nonverbal cues to ethically and respectfully handling disagreements, Finding
    Value is your handbook for building strong, fulfilling relationships that last.

    Rick and Jane's Walk Across America

    Rick and Jane's Walk Across America

    Welcome to The Big Impact Ep 258 - Rick and Jane's Walk Across America
    How would you respond if asked to do something you knew was impossible? Something so difficult, so crazy, so beyond your ability that it didn’t even make sense. You’d dismiss it, forget about it and act like you were never asked, right? But what if it were God asking? What if you were absolutely sure that you had just heard God speak?

    This is that story. It is the story of ultimate Christian Evangelism. It is the story of life-changing adventure driven by a desire to share the gospel. It is the story of two very unlikely people who God asked to walk across America. They were to walk from one side of the country to the other, in every conceivable kind of weather, facing what seemed like insurmountable odds, taking every step together and accomplish it in just six months.

    As you read this memoir, you’ll take each step with them, meet the people they met, hear the prayers they prayed, feel their pain and celebrate their victories. This is the incredible, true account of their once-in-a-lifetime, and how it transformed their lives forever.
