If you want to make God laugh, tell him you have a plan-because things don't always go our way. And for fifty-five-year-old grandmother Marissa Zamora, her plans to hike the famous Camino de Santiago trails in northern Spain would give God a good laugh.
In Carried-A Pilgrim's Story, author Marissa Zamora shares her inspiring but unexpected journey to follow Saint James's path from Bilbao, Spain, to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. After eight months of preparation, savings, and planning, she ventures off alone to a foreign country-only to find herself in dire straits as her adventure turns from joy to pain. Her plans to chronicle her journey of a lifetime becomes a spiritual march to overcome the unexpected and find her way-in her hike, in herself, and in Christ.
What had started out as an adventure suddenly turned into a true pilgrimage, and Marissa's story is a testament to the way we must have faith in God's plans-because the ones we make for ourselves cannot always be trusted.
