An epic memoir of a husband and wife team that paddled the entire length of the Mississippi River in a tandem kayak. Along the way they stop in quaint river towns and volunteer with charitable organizations, and ultimately, they discover as much about themselves as they do about the natural world along the Mighty Mississippi.

"You want to what?" Barb regards her husband with incredulity at the prospect of paddling down the entire length of the mighty Mississippi River in their recently completed tandem kayak. Paddle for a Purpose sweeps the reader into a journey of faith and personal discovery, as Barb and Gene feel called to volunteer with charity organizations in quaint river towns along one of the most scenic and powerful river systems in America. Against a backdrop of picturesque settings and the river's changing moods, exciting and often humorous accounts of adventure and mishap intermingle with inspiring stories of healing, renewal, beauty, compassion and trust in God. 


During her teaching career, BARB GEIGER spent every day surrounded by young children and good books. Now retired, her extra time is spent volunteering in the community and pursuing her own dream of writing. Barb has studied with AllWriters' Workplace & Workshop since 2011. Paddle for a Purpose is her first book. She lives in Waukesha, Wisconsin, with her husband, Gene, and their chinchilla, Raji.
