For more than 30 years, Jack Layfield dreamed of hiking the entire Appalachian Trail. At the age of 68, he was an out-of-shape, soon-to-be-retired mental health counselor with a longing for an adventure. A chance encounter with the Appalachian Trail Chaplaincy opened a new door to a new life of service and a chance to fulfill his lifelong dream. Come alongside "Chappy Jack" as he straps on a backpack for a six-month, 2,192-mile-trek along the famous footpath. As you follow his journey through the pages of "On the Trail with Chappy Jack: Devotions for the Path You're On," may the true white blaze of faith lead you, as it did Jack, to the Mountain of Peace.
