While Nathan Vrite’s life is ordinary in many ways, it is miraculous in one—he has somehow found that little bit of willingness needed to show him another way; another way of being in the world.  It is a story of discovering resistance, and the suffering that comes with our unconscious need to know and understand as a way to feel safe in the world.  The willingness Nathan finds, leads him to become a student of his own experience as he begins to uncover the peace and joy that lie inside, waiting to shine forth.

We go with Nathan as he begins to look at these factors and the influence they have on his life, and his very being.  We join in Nathan’s journey of discovery as he embarks on a life-altering process of looking at himself as he has never done before.  Along the way we realize that Nathan’s story is our own, and that if we too are wondering how to find the peace and joy we sense is there, Nathan just may show us how a little willingness is all we need.
Join Nathan as he applies the Student of Experience™ principles in his daily life.
Can you find the willingness to
explore YOUR life?

"I read your book on the way home from Italy, cover to cover it took me about 8 hours off and on. I really could not put it down. Right from the beginning I was hooked, I thought of so many  people I wanted to have read this extremely wonderful, enlightening piece of literature.  Thank you for this inspiring story."

"There is something about this book that won't let go of me. I read it in three sittings, as I became enthralled with the main character Nathan, from the get-go. His honest, bare-naked, and non-stop internal dialogue, was frightfully similar to my own. I imagine it would resonate in a similar manner with anyone who seeks spiritual growth - yet is saddled with a lifetime of learned habits, judgements (self and others), and unmet expectations..."

"In Who Would I Be Without, Jim McDonald has provided a real gift to those readers who are looking for a path to personal growth.  He shares a fascinating mosaic journey into an unexplored life which gives us the message that we can find a knowing and an inner peace within if we avoid the quick fix, trust our intuition, persevere and be ever mindful that life is a moment-by-moment marathon and not a fifty-yard dash.  And, that there is no finish line."

"This first novel by James McDonald reminds me of M. Scott Peck's Road Less Traveled, and his fictional novels, in its depiction of an individual who boldly treads the road of self discovery.  I have spoken to other readers of this promising new novel and have discovered, as in my case, that each has had a profound emotional reaction to the book at some point or other, having to put it down and walk away from it to return eagerly at a later point to devour it." ~  J. William Grieve
