Coach Dan Burchfield I read your book my journey with Joel with my girlfriend Jessica we cried laughed and mourned about people who have passed. But most of all it brought us closer together with each other, with God and with our Eternal self, my kids and my family. I found myself getting to know what life is really about through your eyes and Joel's eyes , your son Ryan and your wife Laura. It brings Clarity too many things that are difficult to deal with and every and what impact you can make on someone else's life. it has definitely brought healing to me with everything I have gone through in my life. You are truly inspirational to me as a former baseball player. You are a great coach mentor and friend and example to me forever I love you coach.

Dan Burchfield has perfectly captured the heart and soul of his family, experience as a teacher, and his community in his book, "My Journey With Joel". Written and formatted as journal entries from his annual "Spirit Walk", Burchfield takes us back through the very beginnings of his family, his loss of Joel, and his eventual calling to become a teacher and inspire his community. You will not regret purchasing this book! It is a quick read that will have you sharing all of the joys, sorrows, and hope that Burchfield family has experienced. A portion of the proceeds from this book will also go to a scholarship memorial fund in Joel's name!

Finally got my book, #MyJourneyWithJoel and spent hours this morning reading the entire thing. It’s so good ! No better way to start Father’s Day then to go on this journey of a father who has carried on the spirit of his son through teaching, coaching, and philanthropy. Dan Burchfield has impacted thousands of young people’s lives (including myself) in our tight knit community, and his story and perspective is truly inspirational. This book stirred up lots of old emotions and memories but I Loved it so much and hope everyone goes out and buys it !
