My Million-Mile Journey tells the awe-inspiring story of one Texas girl’s perilous journey from abandonment, abuse, and parental alcoholism to a joyous, fulfilled life of faith and gratitude. You will learn first-hand how God protects her and heals even her deepest scars through His grace and mercy.
Patsy, with guidance from the Holy Spirit, hopes to motivate and inspire those who may have personally suffered from dysfunctional relationships in the past or want to make a difference in the lives of others who struggle today.
Come along on this often shocking, sometimes painful journey with Patsy. Meet many of the angels who guided her as she relives those early years and shares how she was able to:
- forgive her parents for the heartache and abuse she endured as a child
- rise above her circumstances to build a meaningful life for her and her family
- break free of the chains of abuse and alcoholism that could have sabotaged her life as well as the lives of her daughters
- and, most importantly, follow her calling to live the life God intended.
If there were such a thing as an Amber Alert during Patsy Wurster’s childhood, it would have been one long alarm. In My Million-Mile Journey, she writes powerfully about a very troubled childhood that—despite the odds—turns into a rewarding life with her family, her work, and her God.
Patsy Wurster, formerly Patsy Hughes Sheward of Mangum, lives in the Colorado Springs area with Gary, her husband of thirty years. Their blended family includes five children, seventeen grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. In addition to her important roles as Mom and Grandma, Patsy became a global business leader, working her way up through the ranks in organizations like LexisNexis, Financial Times Energy, and McGraw-Hill Financial (now S&P Global). She was with the McGraw-Hill organization over twenty years, traveling to more than thirty countries for business and pleasure. After retiring from the corporate world, Patsy began writing about her million-mile journey from an extremely difficult childhood to the personal, professional, and financial success she cherishes today.
