Book Review - "Blind Hope"

If you are looking for a quick and inspirational read, then "Blind Hope: An Unwanted Dog & the Woman She Rescued" by Kim Meeder and Laurie Sacher is for you!

Laurie seeks healing at the ranch of broken dreams, formally known as Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch. This ranch is filled with broken horses and broken children. Laurie reaches out to help a dog, however she soon realizes that the dog is actually rescuing her! This is an excellent story of hurt and hope and a healing journey. Laurie realizes that she had been living her life by relying solely on her emotions and she had become a slave to her emotions instead of taking control of them and choosing how to respond. This is one of the many great lessons and points of the book that we can all benefit from.

I love that the book begins with the founding of the ranch. The following statement jumped out and drew me into the book, "Simple Encouragement from the little ranch in a cinder pit is reaching around the world." Working with "broken" children and families myself, this book was of particular interest to me and very encouraging. I recommend this book for all and it really is a quick, though-provoking, yet enjoyable read!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.*
