Follow Your Detour

The Book

By: Lindsay McKenzie

Are you feeling stuck amidst the pain and confusion of an unexpected loss in your life?

Or, is there a stirring in your heart telling you to take a risk and make a change, but the uncertainty is holding you back?

Life rarely goes according to plan. Lindsay McKenzie learned this the hard way, as her perfect plans for her life came crashing down. In Follow Your Detour, she shares the pain she experienced through the loss of a loved one, the loss of her greatest dream and desire of her heart, and consequently, the loss of her identity. But choosing to follow her detour led her on a life changing adventure, in which she found her true identity and happiness.

We’ve all heard the saying “follow your dreams”, but what if your dreams aren’t working out yet? This uplifting and engaging book will help you see the world of possibilities that lie ahead of you, even in the darkness of your pain and fear. Lindsay’s heartfelt and relatable story telling will have you crying, then laughing, and unable to put the book down. Through her unique detour, she’ll inspire you and equip you with a mindset that will give you the patience and persistence to keep moving forward, despite not having all the answers or a map with clear directions.

It’s time to push past your heartache and fear of the unknown towards a new path. A path that leads you on a journey filled with opportunities to turn your brokenness into your greatest blessing!

Embrace your own detour and follow it!

Go find the real you.
