In this episode we speak to Chris Staron and get his perspective of how God has used the wilderness to speak to him and draw him closer to Himself. Chris recently hiked over 300 miles on the John Muir Trail and Laugavegur trail in Iceland, while frequently spending nights in the mountains near his home in Jackson, Wyoming.
Chris is the writer/director of the Christian films "Bringing Up Bobby" and "Between the Walls". He's also the author of the time travel thriller novel, "Cradle Robber".

In this episode I catch everyone up on what God is doing in my families life. We are in a season of growth and response to something God is leading us towards. I talk about how I’ve been encouraged by my time in scripture and prayer as well as encouragement from friends and family members.
In this episode we discuss what exactly wilderness ministry is and how we can use it on our every day lives. Wilderness ministry isn’t just something you do, it should be incorporated into your entire life. This episode explains how you can do that on your own and with those that God has given you to lead.
