Waterside Productions Announces Wayne Raffesberger's New Book "Thank God I Got Polio"
That life of adventure took him around the world, from New Zealand fjords to Himalayan treks to Amazon jungles. Adventures like rafting whitewater, scuba diving with sharks, parachuting, and climbing mountains like the Matterhorn, Mt. Kilimanjaro, and Mt. Rainier. Adventures that many others would never have even attempted.
His adventures were not only physical, though. They were also emotional, romantic, and ultimately, spiritual. The book has many highs and many lows. "It will break your heart, and then put it back together again," says Raffesberger.
Reflecting back on the journey of his life led him to a spiritual awakening. Back to faith, after a lifetime of denial. Dealing with repressed emotion while writing the book was very difficult, but Raffesberger says that, "If one sick child or person struggling with insurmountable challenges is inspired, it's all been worth it."
