“The Thinking Rock”: an in-depth account of the author’s journey in life that exudes with an appreciation for his family, which birthed a profound discernment for his life’s purpose. “The Thinking Rock” is the creation of published author Larid Johnson, a retired biologist with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.

Johnson shares, “Along the side of the old Taylor Mountain Road, below the aspen groves, is a large Navaho sand rock known as the Thinking Rock. From years of weather, the rock has become a smooth place to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. This gives us a place to just think, or if one needs to ponder a serious problem or just to relive an old memory, the Thinking Rock is the place to go.

“Time in our lives is like gold, and we should spend our treasure wisely. Often, we squander our attention on our wants and entertainment. The demand of routine tasks often dulls our appreciation for doing good things. It’s not that we don’t use or heads to think about family, but we think about things that don’t matter. This book gives an opportunity to think and compare a wonderful and unique family to the status quo. The magic ingredients for a successful family are a lot of love, a lot of thought, and a lot of humor.

“‘The people who do not revere the deeds of their ancestors will never do anything to be remembered by their descendants,’ said McCadey. We all have families and family trees. Genetic fibers and roots run deep. By study and learning, by understanding, and by loving, we may better understand ourselves and our strengths and weaknesses. It may help give us a sense of pride in our heritage and help keep us from bringing dishonor to our legacy.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Larid Johnson’s new book is a testament to a life lived in wisdom and clarity due to unceasing self-contemplation and faith in God.

This book imparts a sagacious focus on time, family, ancestry, and legacy that inspires the idea of living life to the fullest and never wasting one’s thoughts on trivial moments.
