Travel back in time with Charles Hamm to enjoy storied wisdom masterfully told by a Texan cowboy and veteran. Overcome the hardships of life as you journey through a collection of stories, common sense, and tales from another time. Commune with the critters, wrestle with war and triumph over tears in this heartfelt memoir that reads like a carefully crafted scrapbook of a life well-lived. Charles Hamm brings Southern wisdom to life by offering up his own lifelong experience in a compelling collection of memories. Filled with heartwarming tales of grit and tenacity, Ponder On It, Pilgrims invites us all to see the world from a new perspective.

"A pilgrim is someone on a journey. We're all pilgrims on this journey called life."

Follow Charles as he introduces his Four Golden Questions and indulges in short stories of how these questions have shaped his actions, thoughts, and journey throughout life. By taking in the memories of a once young Marine to his now daily habits as a well-lived cowboy, husband, and public speaker, you will learn to apply the Four Golden Questions to your own life.

Consider how a wise man thinks, speaks, acts, and feels, and come to understand the power of self-reflection in personal growth.

“I have observed over the years that there is something therapeutic in simply asking this question. I see it in my own life and in others when I ask them. As a person is ponderin’ it, stress and anxiety give way to a proactive mindset focused on making the best decision possible—being wise. Foraging for this answer takes you beyond reacting emotionally, in the heat of the moment, to a studied, measured solution. ‘What would a wise person do?’ ‘What would a wise person say?”

Editorial review

In "Ponder on it, Pilgrims", Charles Hamm has captured the hearts of many readers and fans, including my own! The introduction of his book served as the inspiration behind our summer 2024 theme "Golden Questions". He has wonderfully demonstrated how the action of self publishing can make a huge impact when greeted with anticipation.

With beyond average sales and a delightfully engaged audience, I see a long life of "Ponder on it, Pilgrims", with further sales of this edition, or maybe a revised. And rumor has it, there just might be second book in the works!
