Introduction

Title: A Journey of Hope

Author: Jodi Stuber

Publisher: Eden Principle

Publication Date: July 2014

Format: Print Book

Length: 137 Pages

OVERVIEW

After experiencing tremendous loss, Jodi Stuber came across articles about the potential that healing horses can bring. Remembering her personal experience of healing through horses, the answer was clear and HopeWell Ranch was born. Stuber walks readers through each phase of growth the ranch has experienced. The reader is able to connect with both the children and animals as HopeWell serves to see the incredible ways God brings healing. The book lacks the drama that could have come from a more skilled writer, but its tone is sincere and its information is insightful.

Suggested Audience

Christian Impact

This book highlights a wonderful Christian ministry. The way God works through prayer is an essential part of the story. His love and mercy are shown through both the stories of the children and the animals on the ranch.  In years gone by such movies as “The Horse Whisperer” have shown how tamed animals can be used to help emotionally wounded people find new hope, encouragement, and joy. This book adds the Christian element of revealing how God’s creatures can be used beneficially to everyone.
