My name is Bill Harrison. I am a spiritual entrepreneur, life coach, award winning author and public speaker.
My wife Mary and I enjoyed a more than half century life journey together. What began as a very ordinary marriage, with work, school and the beginning of a family when our daughter Jennifer arrived, changed dramatically in January 1970 when we jointly decided to follow Jesus Christ to wherever he led us and to do whatever he asked us to do. Thus began a voyage of challenge, adventure and accomplishment that far exceeded anything we had imagined for ourselves. The story of that voyage and the principles we discovered along the way are documented in our book “Spiritual Entrepreneurship: Fulfilling Your God- Ordained Destiny” which won the Readers Choice award in the Spiritual Leadership category at the Christian Literary Awards in December 2019. We called the process spiritual entrepreneurship: entrepreneurship because it required us to leave our comfort zone and engage in difficult, sometimes risky endeavors with no guarantee of success. And spiritual because it was done with the guidance and empowerment of God’s Holy Spirit.
When Mary passed away in December 2017 following a long battle with an incurable liver disease my life changed dramatically once again. The story of my journey since her passing and the lessons I have learned from it are documented in my book “Traveling Solo but Never Alone: Surviving and Thriving After the Loss of a Spouse”.
Both books are available online from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. You can download a free sample chapter of each here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/z7ohr3q8omz140r/AACmjyFvHQacNj_gON6twYTva?dl=0
For some of my thoughts related to the process, see my blog posts.
