A story of unconditional love and acceptance where you least expect it
Imagine yourself a thirteen-year-old hundreds of miles away from home, in a strange city, and your mom leaves you at a bus station and drives off into the night with her lover.
That's the real life story of country music star Jimmy Wayne. It's a miracle that Jimmy survived being hungry, homeless, and bouncing in and out of the foster care system, and sleeping in the streets. But he didn't just overcome great adversity in his life; he now uses his country music platform to help children everywhere, especially teenagers in foster care who are about to age out of the system.
Walk to Beautiful is the powerfully emotive account of Jimmy's horrendous childhood and the love shown him by Russell and Bea Costner, the elderly couple who gave him a stable home and provided the chance to complete his education. Jimmy says of Bea, "She changed every cell in my body."
It also chronicles Jimmy's rise to fame in the music industry and his Meet Me Halfway campaign—his walk halfway across America to raise awareness for foster kids.
- Great book
Great motivator to get involved with broken families.
- Amazing story of survival and growth and proof that God always has a plan!
I love this book! I raed it in under a week after it was released... Can't wait to hear it - just wish Jimmy had narrated the whole thing himself.
- interesting and well-written
