A delightful book. A delightful mixture of Sam's life and his birding avocation. It provides insight into the world of birding, and Sam's enthusiasm is contagious.Written from the heart.

A lovely combination of memoir, nature observations, and reflections on the divine, My Birding Adventures with God is engaging, readable, and uplifting. The author is honest about disappointments and disillusionment as well as joys and fulfillment. The book describes his journey to healing and forgiveness and peace--and becoming the hoped-for naturalist that he longed to be from childhood. I particularly liked the chapters titled "Search for the Seaside Sparrow" (testimony to the healing power of devotion, persistence, and God's love) and "Sandhill Cranes" (nature providing imagery of comfort and hope). Highly recommended for those who find God in nature--or would like to learn how.

My Birding Adventures with God is an interesting combination of ... My Birding Adventures with God is an interesting combination of a man's extremely open memoir related to his early and mid-life emotional trials and the ways he meets these, his on-going awe of the ways his religion interfaces with his life experiences, and in particular, how these manifest themselves through his birding adventures. The author also includes scripture to highlight the lessons he learns through his experiences. This book includes many interesting birding facts as well as some observations of those who seriously take up birding as an avocation. It also details his growth from a youth impatient to get off a Minnesota farm into a man who can forgive his early life experiences.

Uplifting Book I just finished Sam's book, My Birding Adventures with God. I found it to be well written and very interesting. I loved how God always gave Sam the desires of his heart, even ones Sam did not know he had. It was very encouraging and uplifting. Linda Barry
