Randy has worked with addicts and children, the homeless and the prosperous, and has collected loads of testimonies where God has touched the lives of hurting people. He has witness many trials and even more victories, and shares them with humor and somber conclusions. Don't Shoot the Horse is simply a book of encouragement, offering hope to the reader. The chapters are short and to the point, making it easy reading. Some of the chapters, as one reader described, "will make you laugh out loud;" other chapters will make you say "Oh man." The chapters 'Thanks a Lot' (Living a life of gratitude), 'The God of Broken Pieces' and 'Regaining Your Footing' were written after the author's world fell apart, and God starting putting it back together. His unique way of looking at things will help to inspire you to notice the many gifts the Savior bestows on us each day, and encourages you to 'stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.'
