Just Living the Dream

No Way Out But Through

Captain David Berling (retired)
Melissa Berling and Kim Berling

Just Living the Dream: No Way Out But Through is a 2013 biography by Captain David Berling (retired), Melissa Berling, and Kim Berling.  It is a family's inspiring true story of a pilot's journey through recovering from a traumatic plane crash to getting back in the cockpit.  Just Living the Dream begins with the phone call nobody wants to receive, a voice on the line saying, "There's been an accident."  What follows is a testament to the hope, perseverance, loyalty, and love required to recover.  The story is an intimate look into the Berling family's lives during the days and months after that fateful night.  It's an honest read, with refreshing humor, that may inspire you to live your own dream.


Just Living the Dream won the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Award

for Best Autobiography/Biography and was a finalist in both the Military

and Motivational categories.
