Wheels of Wisdom: Life Lessons for the Restless Spirit

Adult; Spirituality/Inspirational; (Market)

Looking for more out of life?

After three tours totaling over 10,000 miles, Tim and Debbie Bishop have discovered wisdom and truth from the seat of a bicycle. In Wheels of Wisdom, the authors share the life lessons they learned on the open road.

When you're looking for enlightenment, you can find it almost anywhere, be it from watching two herons saunter across a Florida road, pedaling to a dead-end in a Kentucky tobacco field, or observing eagles flying overhead in Montana. In each lesson of this book, you’ll find practical insights, inspiration, and encouragement--along with personal reflection questions that will help you:

  • Adopt the right mind-set
  • Conquer fear, worry, and inaction
  • Overcome obstacles
  • Relish life's journey

Certain principles are universal whether you are bicycling across America or chasing your own a lifelong dream.

You may be continuing your education, connecting with new people, looking to change jobs, or simply wondering about your future. Wherever you are in life, Wheels of Wisdom will give you a fresh perspective and new motivation for your own adventure. Not only will you encounter meaningful truth as you travel vicariously to new places, you’ll also experience some genuine “God moments” and have some fun on the way.

So, pack up your dreams and passions and come along for the ride. It’s time to learn on the open road!

Reviews
Those looking for a road map for life can get directions from the Bishops, who navigated a cross-country bicycle trip and recorded helpful observations gleaned on the journey. The coauthors, who are volunteer coaches for TheHopeLine, a nonprofit that reaches out to teens and young adults in need, share stories and insights cleverly separated into six thematic sections: Charting the Course, Shifting Gears, Taking Precautions, Finding Motivation, Riding Through Storms, and Enjoying the Ride. The lessons learned along a bike route or from coasting through life’s roadblocks are much the same, they discover, and wisdom can be found through the smallest of observations and everyday experiences. A lost shoe, for example, prompts reflections on placing too much value on possessions, and gripping the handlebar for an extended period of time results in lessons on letting go. The book, which incorporates faith without unnecessary preaching, includes a section of questions for personal reflection at the end of each lesson and is a handy tool for small group study and discussion.

I love the practical nature of this book. It has a great design, easy readability—it’s excellent! Wheels of Wisdom makes a wonderful devotional to do on your own or with a friend or small group.

Dan Miller, NY Times bestselling author of 48 Days to the Work You Love

I found myself pulled into the stories and jealous of the rich life lessons Tim and Debbie were experiencing. Seeing the beauty in nature, taking time to know our unique calling, asking for help, and being in a position to expect a miracle are things we often miss in our routine, safe lives. Wheels of Wisdom is a wonderful story of adventure, filled with romance, humor, insights, and a reminder that we are all privileged travelers in this world of wonder.

Dave Anderson, Director of Rescue for TheHopeLine

If you want to enjoy an engaging read while also being challenged to think about things bigger than yourself and beyond the next moment, then you’ve opened the right book.

Dr. John Giannini, head men's basketball coach at La Salle University

Wheels of Wisdom offers the unique combination of being extremely readable and thought-provoking at the same time. Sharing in Tim and Debbie's adventures leads one to consider how matters of everyday faith, preparation, decision-making, and perspective affect us not only in the moment, but throughout our lives.

Heather Randall, CEO of Christian Women Affiliate

In Wheels of Wisdom, Tim and Debbie Bishop share more than a love of cross-country cycling. They share a keen eye on life, philosophical reflections of trying experiences, and the valuable spiritual lessons they learned along the way. Travel along. When the ride stops, you’ll be different.

Jim Sayer, Executive Director of Adventure Cycling Association

Tim and Debbie Bishop know better than just about anyone the power of bicycle travel—for the body and soul. As with their other cycling chronicles, Wheels of Wisdom offers plenty of sage advice for people at all stages of life and people who might turn to a trusty bicycle to help them make the next big transition. Whether you're a beginner or veteran cyclist, this book has something for you.

Lisa Lickel, author

Packed with zest, adventure, and love, Wheels of Wisdom offers an unusual combination of joyous living and an appeal to grab each moment and make it count. A great read for those who enjoy a virtual trip with some intriguing insights.

Peter DeHaan, author and blogger

Thanks to Wheels of Wisdom, I vicariously enjoyed a bicycle tour without the blisters and the sore back. Tim and Debbie Bishop took me to states I never visited and showed me sights I’d never seen. I learned about God and myself. What a great adventure!

Stacey Louiso, author, editor, and worship artist

It was a privilege to ride along the roads of life with the Bishops in Wheels of Wisdom! Their view of the world on two wheels gave a unique perspective of how God makes His presence known.

Tim Altman, CEO of the Dawson McAllister Association

Generous, kind, and caring: that’s how the Bishops live their lives. This book is infused with those wonderful traits. Not only are Tim and Debbie determined to grow through every experience and adventure in their lives, but they humbly share those lessons with us as if we were sitting across the kitchen table from them.
