GIVEAWAY AND REVIEW OF BLIND HOPE BY K. MEEDER AND L. SACHER

Blind Hope: An Unwanted Dog and the Woman She RescuedAn unwanted dog. An emotional rescue.
Two lives forever changed.
In the book Blind Hope: An Unwanted Dog and the Woman She Rescued, Laurie rescues a blind dog she names Mia. Laurie's life had been shattered before she came to work at Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch—the ranch of rescued dreams—where broken horses and broken children encounter healing every day. She thought that she was saving Mia but she realizes that Mia was saving her.


 An inspiring true story told through the engaging voice of Kim Meeder, Blind Hope reveals poignant life lessons Laurie experienced from her ailing, yet courageous canine friend. Despite the blindness of her dog—and her own heart—Laurie uncovered what she really needed most: authentic love, unconditional trust, and true acceptance, faults and all.

As Laurie and her dog, Mia, both learned to follow the lead of a master they couldn’t see, Laurie discovered the transforming power of God’s grace even for imperfect and selfish people—and she experienced a greater love than she had ever known.

About the Author's-

Kim Meeder is the author of Hope Rising and Bridge Called Hope. Along with her husband, Troy, she owns and operates Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in central Oregon. Crystal Peaks is a nonprofit organization that rescues abused and neglected horses and pairs them with disadvantaged children, offering the children a place of safety, peace, and hope. In 2004, Kim received the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Award, one of the nation’s highest honors for public service.

Laurie Sacher is a team leader at Crystal Peaks Youth. Laurie graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University in 2003 and taught English as Second Language in Spain before returning to her native California roots to pursue her passion for kids and animals. 




My Thoughts-

What an inspirational and beautiful story. I really loved the photos in the beginning of each chapter. The story seems to jump around and the conversations between the two authors disrupted the flow of the story. It was simply written and I was able to finish the book in about two hours. The book was about faith, love, friendship and trust.
