About the Book
Book: Walking with Jesus
Author: Troy A. Waugh
Release Date: Feb, 2020
When God spoke to Troy Waugh saying, “I want you to walk the Natchez Trace,” he obeyed.
Never mind that he wasn’t young anymore—he would be seventy at the completion of the 444 mile walk. Never mind that the thirty-five-day walk would be far above his physical capabilities and experience. Never mind that this was Mississippi—in the summer.
Taking the challenge, Waugh uses the time to slow down and reflect on his life—his upbringing, his relationships, his struggles with workaholism—and to raise awareness for a homeless ministry. More than a travelogue, this is a journey into the soul of a man learning to walk with the Lord daily. His reflections will inspire others to reach for and accomplish their own difficult goals.
I believe my walk on the Natchez Trace was God’s method of shaking me loose from the regrets of my past and firming up my spiritual belief system so I could walk into the future closer to Jesus.

Full of Biblical truths, Scriptures, personal experiences, and more this book has a lot to offer. Prompted by God to walk the Natchez Trace, Troy Waugh sets out on an amazing journey full of blessings and more. I loved reading about his childhood, adulthood, marriages, children and more. Yet the thing that stands out most to me most in this book is his faith and the importance of having a purposeful and meaningful relationship with God.
The other thing I really loved about this book was the contributions by Sheryl, his wife, who followed along in the car. The tales of the people they met, the places they stayed, and those who prayed for Troy along his journey brought this book to life for me. So check it out for yourself. I promise it is worth reading.
I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

More from Troy
Please join me on a spiritual journey along the Natchez Trace Parkway from Natchez, Mississippi, to Nashville, Tennessee. This book relates a journey of spiritual renewal and rediscovery. While it does describe what I encountered on this historic parkway, this is not a hiking or nature book. It is about my walk with Jesus and how He has loved me even during the times I may have strayed from Him.
In 2014 I experienced a deepening of my relationship with Jesus like no other. This book is about that cleansing and invigorating experience. My prayer is that you, too, will feel God’s love for you and you will recommit yourself to loving Jesus.
These thirty-one chapters are based upon notes from the daily journal I kept throughout the hike. Each of the days is unique, and each day God revealed Himself to me in a different way.
I trust your spirit will be renewed as I share some of my experiences of angels’ visits, hearing the audible voice of God, the move of the Holy Spirit, a shocking suicide, the miracle of a change in the climate, and the renewed life that comes from turning your life over to God.
