Blind Hope - a true story about love

~ Review

Blind HopeBlind Hope: An Unwanted Dog and the Woman She Rescued

by Kim Meeder
208 pages
Amazon: $5.60 (paperback)

An unwanted dog. An emotional rescue. Two lives forever changed. 

Laurie's dreams 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. In an attempt to soothe her aching soul, Laurie reached out to save a dog in need. And she soon began to realize that the dog was rescuing 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.

“Love is a bridge that stands firm through difficulties and connects one heart directly to another, not because of how it looks, but because of what it is.”    --Kim Meeder, Blind Hope

My Thoughts:
Blind Hope is about more than rescuing a dog from a neglectful owner but it's also about a woman who ends up learning more about herself and the God who loves her than she expected. She ends up learning about why she takes risks with her life, why she can't trust others and why she can't trust God to provide her with what she needs and wants more than anything.

Blind Hope is a good book to leave in the bathroom, on the end table, in the guest room and it's a great book to read with your kids 12+. There are some parts kids will have questions about but you can take the time to explain the answers and use those questions to help your children to form an opinion about right and wrong. The book is a quick read even though it's 208 pages long. It moves fast and is chock full of good advice, scripture and has a wonderful section on what Christ's sacrifice means to us.

I was given a copy of Blind Hope through Blogging For Books. I was not required to write a positive review nor did I receive $ for my review.
