Overview

On a crisp but sunny afternoon in Vancouver, Washington, a 52-year old woman mounted a bicycle and started a ride along with a several other riders. One mile later, 12 of them were still riding with her as she headed towards Mt. Hood, Oregon. At the end of that day, she said goodbye to the last few riders and embarked on a 3,000 mile journey that would take her across the continental U.S. toward Atlanta, Georgia.

Although she had trained for a few weeks, she was uncertain as to whether she would be able to finish or not. But one thing and one thing alone fueled her passion to finish. The lady's name was Lori Salierno. Her burning passion was her desire to raise awareness for the often forgotten children of this world.

Driven to the limits of her physical body, she encountered seemingly insurmountable challenges. While riding 70 to 100 miles per day, she rode through 37 degree weather in Oregon, pedaled by rattlesnakes in the dunes of Idaho, climbed up 12 percent grade roads in Utah and Colorado, lifted her bike over her head in celebration at the top of a 10,276 foot mountain in Colorado, skirted around wildfires in the Rockies, fought 18 mph headwinds in Kansas, got soaked in sweat pushing through 109 degree weather in Missouri, got hit by a car in St. Louis, and maneuvered shoulder-less county roads in the South.

Lori shares her dangerous adventure with us in Hope Dangerously. Her story is not about a bicycle ride but about how we can overcome the challenges and dangers of life with hope, passion, and determination. Foreword by Coach Mark Richt.

Meet the Author

Dr. Lori Salierno is founder, president, and CEO of Celebrate Life International. While working as a staff member at various churches throughout the United States, Dr. Salierno began speaking at colleges and universities, conventions, music festivals, women’s conferences, and large church staffs all across the country. As she talked about the seemingly impossible challenges at-risk kids faced and shared her message of hope, she recognized an opportunity to maximize her influence for good by looking beyond the speaking platform. Dr. Salierno wanted to make a real difference in the lives of at-risk kids, so she spearheaded the development of the Teach One to Lead One® mentoring program.

Since 1996, more than 150,000 at-risk kids have been influenced by her organization that has impacted many states and four countries. Under Dr. Salierno’s leadership, the Celebrate Life International staff and hundreds of volunteers are working together to impact individuals and families all over the world by helping at-risk kids discover their purpose in life, develop them into leaders of integrity, and transform the communities in which they live.

Dr. Salierno holds a bachelor of arts from Seattle Pacific University, a master of divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a doctor of ministry from Asbury Theological Seminary.

    This is a great read. It is both very inspirational and challenging at the same time. Lori's trip across the U.S. is a good story but, more than that, it makes one think about our own life and what we are doing with our talents. This books makes a good gift also. Her organization, Celebrate Life Intl offers a paperback version that has questions at the end of every chapter; the questions make the book even more powerful.
