Walk to Beautiful

* NEW YORK TIME BEST SELLER*

Imagine yourself a thirteen-year-old hundreds of miles away from home, in a strange city, and your mom leaves you at a bus station parking lot and drives off into the night with her lover.

That's the real life story of country music star Jimmy Wayne. It's a miracle that Jimmy survived being hungry and homeless, bouncing in and out of the foster care system, and sleeping in the streets. But he didn't just overcome great adversity in his life; he now uses his country music platform to help children everywhere, especially teenagers in foster care who are about to age out of the system.

Walk to Beautiful is the powerfully emotive account of Jimmy's horrendous childhood and the love shown him by Russell and Bea Costner, the elderly couple who gave him a stable home and provided the chance to complete his education. Jimmy says of Bea, "She changed every cell in my body."

It also chronicles Jimmy's rise to fame in the music industry and his Meet Me Halfway campaign: his walk halfway across America, 1,700 miles from Nashville to Phoenix, to raise awareness for foster kids.

Join Jimmy on his walk to beautiful and see how one person really can make a difference.

Powerful Biography
5 stars By Jacqui, Jul 01 2016
Jimmy Wayne's life testifies to the power that God's love administered extravagantly by his people can have to change the trajectory of a life. Reading this story is hard as you are confronted with a reality of pain, abuse and neglect that some kids face daily. It is truly amazing that Jimmy Wayne survived to get to the point where an elderly couple took him in and loved him and believed in him finally helping him to see that God did love and value him.
I loved and I hated this book. I hated reading the first part of the book where Jimmy tells of his first 16 years of his life. It was painful, confronting and challenging. I loved the second part of the book where his life is changed by love and he goes on to seek God for how he can now help other kids who have lives like him. Powerful and again challenging. This is a life story that gives hope.
