Kim Meeder and Laurie Sacher understand what Wildflower Thinking is! Their book, Blind Hope, is a collection of devotional thoughts brought to mind through the life of an unwanted dog. When we’re seeking truths about God and our life with Him, He can speak through anything!
Kim and her husband own and operate the Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Oregon. The book opens with the story of how this ranch came to be, a place where horses and children are rescued from some of life’s harsh realities. (I would love to visit this place!) Laurie worked at the ranch as an intern. In the spirit of rescue, she adopted a badly neglected dog. Blind Hope records the lessons she learned about God through her experiences with this dog, how these lessons changed her life, rooting and establishing her faith in her Master, and how she shared these with Kim, her mentor, and now, with readers of the book.
Laurie reveals very little of her past, but that part of the story is not essential—it belongs just to her. Instead of dwelling there, she tells us enough to help us see that God used an abandoned, little dog to lead a prodigal safely home. It’s a touching, God-honoring story, full of wisdom and insight of value to any reader—new Christian to seasoned believer.
I truly enjoyed this book and am happy to recommend it to others. Thank you, Waterbrook Multnomah, for sending Blind Hope for my review.
