Psalm 23 and Ephesians 6:10-18 (putting on the full armor of God) inspired Beau Broemmel to write this allegory. Beyond Mossyrock is a tale about a fearful young man named Gindel who lives in a village that is completely surrounded by a giant rock wall. Fear of what might lurk beyond the stone barrier has kept the inhabitants of Mossyrock imprisoned in their very small world for ages. A dream kept haunting Gindel and building within him the desire to leave Mossyrock. When he discovers a way to escape, he leaves the only world he knows and fearfully enters a world completely unknown to him. Eventually, he meets the Shepherd who sends him on a long journey to the Kingdom where Gindel hopes to become a Royal Horseman. Along the way, Gindel meets both good and evil people, some in the physical world, and others in the spiritual world. His faith is put to the test when he confronts many dangerous and seemingly impossible obstacles. Join him on his journey and find out what happens when he places his faith in the loving hands of the Good Shepherd. Beau is retired and lives in northern California with his wife, Joanne. He enjoys fishing and wildlife photography, but his passion is paddling the calm waters of northern California and the Pacific Northwest in his sea kayak.
