The Final Journey:
A Diary of Survival
About the Book
It is the summer of 2016 and the possibility that a dark world exists in the future is a theory no one wants to become a reality. As signs of impending turmoil increase and a presidential election looms in the near future, two married Christian survivalists begin preparations for a fifteen-hundred-mile journey to what they hope is a safe place. Along the way, they log their experiences in a diary while strictly adhering to the mantra to always be prepared for the worst.
As the couple creates the four Es criteria—evaluate, escape, evade, and endure—that will dictate their journey, they pledge to stay true to them hinged on a strong faith that they will be led by an eternal plan. After evaluating their priorities and finalizing the details, the couple finally sets out in January on their quest to survive within a different world. As a new president is inaugurated and the country becomes more divided than ever, the Christian survivalists rely on their faith, scripture, and inner-strength as they transform into determiners of their own future. But can they overcome their challenges and endure long enough to reach their destination?
In this fictionalized diary, two Christian survivalists vividly describe their faith-filled journey to begin a new chapter within a tumultuous post-election world.
