Publisher's Description

From the author of Hope Rising, comes a collection of more than twenty inspiring, true stories from the Ranch of Rescued Dreams, where horses and children help to heal each other. 

Hope is like the stars—always there, yet shining brightest in the blackest of nights. It is like the dawn, always rising anew. Hope is for everyone, and that includes you. This collection of more than twenty true stories unveils the heart of true strength and the character of genuine courage. Experience for yourself the kind of love and hope that change a person from the inside out. Because sometimes, just believing in someone is enough for them to start believing in themselves. It’s the galvanizing truth that no matter how deep your pain…God’s love exceeds it still.

"During the darkest days I’d ever known, I was introduced to the unconditional love of a little horse and a merciful God, and my life has never been the same," says author Kim Meeder. Her book proves that hope is not only for us to keep, but also to give because sometimes just believing in someone is enough for them to start believing in themselves.

Author Bio

KIM MEEDER is the author of Hope RisingBridge Called HopeBlind Hope and Fierce Beauty. Along with her husband, Troy, she owns and operates Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Central Oregon, a nonprofit organization that rescues abused and neglected horses and pairs them with disadvantaged children, offering them a place of safety, peace, and hope. She has been a popular guest on the Focus on the Family radio broadcast, Dr. Dobson’s Family Talk, and featured on the CBS Early Show.

Kim Meeder’s Bridge Called Hope is a collection of stories about Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch. Meeder and her husband Troy bought some property in Central Oregon in 1993 and have refurbished the land into a successful horse ranch. Bridge Called Hope testifies to how they have used the ranch as a ministry to children. Kim relates biblical truths to her experiences as a rancher and to the relationships that have formed between the children and her horses.
Meeder writes with a poetic style, employing imagery, similes, and detailed description. She is skilled at writing vivid, emotional scenes. She addresses topics such as anger, love, death, encouragement, physical disabilities, abuse, friendship, and prayer. As the title suggests, the central theme is hope. The book also includes black-and-white photos from the ranch along with quotes from children Meeder has worked with.
Meeder’s writing style and the large amount of stories about female characters may appeal more to women than to men. Bridge Called Hope would make a great gift for mother, daughter, wife, or friend. However, the heart-touching stories of this book may leave a lasting impression on any reader, regardless of gender, and especially on those who love horses and children. – Bridgette L. Oakes, Christian Book
