This epic journey is based on a true-life story, of parenting and leading a Girl Scout Troop. As one of the Girl Scouts most successful troop leaders, the author guides you through inspirational, hope-filled stories about an amazing group of young women. She lends real meaning to character development, displaying how growing pains can create powerful learning moments, while having fun!

The nostalgic stories are interwoven with girl escapades, rites of passage, and real-life struggles, learning about life with a purpose through the eyes of a child.

“In the beginning, I thought I was taking these kids under my wing, to guide, protect, and mentor. It turns out, they were actually taking me ‘under theirs’ all along. They are ALL my heroes for bringing me along on their adventures. I genuinely learned first-hand while serving families and communities, that’s where our greatest gifts in life are stored and received.  I found clarity and focus on these pathways like never before.

Learning what I am most passionate about in life, and what my calling is, with ‘the whys’, of why it’s important to know this!  These are some of the finest hours I have spent in my lifetime, and the stories are candid, fun, and dauntless, with discoveries that are truly priceless!”  Patty Lou Hawks

Staged in a small beach town in Hawaii, on the island of Oahu ~ take a heartwarming journey and see where this adventure leads you!
