Travel Massive: My story of hiking with mobility challenges Top ten accessibility tips for hikers with mobility challenges

Back story: Nearly thirty years ago Marjorie found herself in a hospital bed after brain surgery to save her life, paralyzed on her right side. The years since then have been a healing journey as she has regained her ability to walk, with support. Little did she know those years ago that one day she would be the author of five Easy Walks walking books focused on helping others, including those with mobility issues, to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Her most recent book, a memoir, is My Liturgy of Easy Walks: Reclaiming hope in a world turned upside down

“I love this book [My Liturgy of Easy Walks]. Marjorie’s style of storytelling is so incredibly relatable and filled with grace. Even though I have very different life circumstances, the comfort and ease I feel each and every time I fall into one of her stories is a welcome respite from a world gone mad. Well done.” April Bell, San Francisco, CA(Certified purchase, Amazon Review–used with permission)

Podcast appearances:

Venn Collaborative. Marjorie Turner Hollman wants to “spread the net wide.” Marjorie talked about her experiences with Venn Collaborative’s Jim Woodell—hear about her view on impact as learning to be creative, and collaboration as interdependence and helping one another.

Awaken Your Wise Woman with Elizabeth Cush –Listen and learn: about forgiveness and finding peace in the wake of a sudden disability; the self-image that can keep us from asking for the help we need; the many ways that “casting a wide net” makes asking for help easier for everyone involved; why receiving is as important as giving—and the bonds the exchange creates.

Soul Forum with April Bell As you listen to Marjorie share her unique journey, which she’s written about in her recent memoir, consider the ways you allow yourself to step deeper into self-love and self-acceptance as you traverse the gentle and not so gentle paths life has laid before you.

50 over 50–Sherrilynne Starkie started this show as a creative project with the goal of interviewing 50 women past their 50th birthday to learn how they see the world. Here, Marjorie shares her wisdom and experience of recovery and a life of disability, the humility of being a welfare mom, and how she learned to love again.

Stepping into She Marjorie shares how pushing through transitions brought her to where she is now–creating spaces for Easy Walks in life.
