Marcy shares her story with her readers by taking them on her personal journey, through the timeline of the loss of her daughter and the transforming experience it has had on her life. Her journey is one that is physical, emotional, and spiritual. The way that Marcy writes is as if she is sitting with you telling you her story and taking you along with her in finding the joy of her daughter live on in every day God Winks, memories, and experiences. This book goes beyond the grief and tragedy of losing a loved one, it is about hope, love, and faith. This is a beautiful remembrance of a beautiful life, and a tribute to the faith that Marcy has and continues to share in her book and in her life. This book is unique in the way that it was written, where it includes many voices, memories, letters, scripture, and diary entries. It reads well, and is a book that you won't put down until you are finished. Marcy shares her daughter's life and her own life in these pages, I would recommend it to anyone who has embarked on a similar journey of their own, and to anyone who is interested in experiencing a story of never ending love and the power of faith.

The story of loss of Kenzie and the long process of grieving for the Robitaille family is both tragic and heartwarming. I was in tears through most of the story but also inspired by the hope that, though stricken with great heartache, we can still find deeper meaning in life. This book is a profile in courage and a must read for those who have suffered the loss of a precious soul they dearly love.

Do you see the phrase “life-changing” as a positive or a negative? Marcy Robitaille’s book, Wish You a Goode Journey will have you asking that of yourself. After a tragically life-changing event tore her world to shreds, she has shown us, through example, how to pick up the pieces and let a love for her daughter and faith in her God bring her back to life. As I read this book, I came to know Makenzie and to love her as she led her mother in living a life that is full and whole – with her daughter by her side. I wholeheartedly recommend Wish You a Goode Journey to anyone with a heart. Reading this book will change your life – positively!

A beautiful heart wrenching tribute by a mother for her beloved 17 year old daughter Mackenzie, who loses her life in a car accident and saves six lives through her organ donations. There are letters and stories from the recipients and friends . A spiritual journey that makes you believe that our loved ones are always with us. Mackenzies journey has continued through her mom Marcy, who's helping so many others in so many ways. I cried through every page.

Wish you a Goode journey was beautifully written. I haven't read a book from cover to cover in years. I bought this last night and finished it this morning! At times I shed a tear, I smiled, I laughed out loud and had goose bumps as I eagerly read my way through their journey. As I finished the book I felt a sense of peace and happiness for Marcy, Mackenzie and their family and friends. It's interesting what signs are put in front of you, if you only slow down long enough to see or feel them! Maybe there will be a second book someday-The journey continues!

For any one who has lost a child from sudden death, has a deep faith in God, and is thinking about organ donation... this story can bring some answers and peace to your heart. Marcy has share her unthinkable journey of loss with such courage and truth that you cannot help but be moved. Her daughter Kenzie also is very present in this reading...together they share that hope really can come to a broken heart. Caution...have tissues at hand, for you will be touched...first by the loss and then by the healing.

What a wonderful testimony to love, loss, faith, and hope. It is every parent’s nightmare to receive “that” phone call. Marcy’s life took an unexpected turn at the news that her beautiful, vivacious, life-loving daughter, Makenzie, died from injuries sustained in an automobile accident as she drove to high school on cold, Friday morning in January. This mother's journey through grief is made possible through her extraordinary openness to her unwavering belief in a God who sustains her and cares for her daughter. This deep love she feels both from God and her daughter leads to some astonishing events after Makenzie’s death. As someone who has experienced traumatic loss as well as knowing this family for a long time, I found this book to be inspirational as Marcy chooses again and again to stand in the light, to believe in love instead of bitterness, and to reach out to those who do not know Christ through sharing her own experience of losing an extra-ordinary human being. It was fascinating to read about the interactions Marcy had with many of the recipients of Makenzie’s organs and how their lives were affected by this family's generosity. It was heart-wrenching to read Makenzie’s friends recount their stories of the crazy and wonderful times they had with McKenzie, of the impact her death had on them, and how they continue to honor her life years after her death. But what most amazed me was the continued presence Makenzie has in Marcy’s life. The recurring times Marcy has “heard" from Makenzie can leave little doubt that there is a life after this one and that our loved ones are in a good(e) place. I would strongly recommend this book for anyone who is a parent, a Christian, or who has lost someone they dearly loved. It will bring comfort, peace, and even some joy.

Inspirational and Compelling Story on how Faith is reborn every day in our lives! Marcy’s faith is beautiful and her account on the timeline since Kenzie’s passing is truly a remarkable journey of faith. No parent should have to go through the loss of their child as she did. The author shares her message to us all and to show us that God is good and life is a journey with many tragedies and joys along its journey. Kenzie was a very compassionate person at such a young age, a true Angel on earth and now an Angel in heaven. I do truly believe that Kenzie was a gift from God for her mother Marcy and to all of us! For her spirit and life will live on forever. I would recommend this book to everyone and anyone that has suffered a loss of a loved one and who needs to find faith in God.
