Linda, the mother of a daughter with special needs, walked the 500 mile Camino de Santiago. She realized that it's about the journey, not the destination. The experience taught Linda to leave her burdens behind and she began to feel more at peace. She shares these powerful nuggets of wisdom:

- some things are outside of our control
- take one day at a time
- you don't have to solve everything now
- decide not to give up
- pause and take a look behind you
- every step towards a goal is a step in the right direction

Linda Atwell lives in Silverton, Oregon with her husband, John. They have two incredible adult children. Linda earned her BA from George Fox College, but it is her entrepreneurial and adventuresome spirits that have inspired her career goals. She owned a successful home décor business for ten years before switching to adjusting catastrophe insurance claims and climbing roofs for a living. Now she writes. Her award-winning work has appeared in print and online magazines. She irregularly writes a blog about her daughter with special needs, travel, and other life adventures. Her first book, Loving Lindsey: Raising a Daughter with Special Needs was released by She Writes Press in September 2017. Linda is happiest traveling the world, and hopes to get fifty stamps in her passport before it expires.
