Following on the hooves of her well-received book Horse Tales from Heaven (nearly 30,000 copies sold since its June 2010 release), horsewoman Rebecca Ondov offers 50 brand-new devotions gleaned from her years of working from the saddle in Montana. Heavenly Horse Sense features horse and trail stories that reveal God's majesty, His love for His creation, and how He helps believers become more like Christ. Readers will enjoy stories that show how...
- naming horses and mules reflects God's joy in His unique creations
- a farrier's skill and forge mimic God's work on our character
- a horse's homing instinct is a great reminder that God is our perfect guide
- a goof-off mule shows God is always present and working behind the scenes
- rain-soaked boots highlight Jesus' foot-washing message of servanthood
Each story focuses on how much God loves us and how He always follows through on His promises. Wrapping up each devotion is a brief prayer thanking God for His constant presence and care.
Rebecca Ondov worked in the saddle on ranches, pack trips, and for the U.S. Forest Service. Shes the founder of Blazing Ink, Inc., and has written numerous magazine articles and books, including Great Horse Stories for Girls and Horse Tales from Heaven. Living in Montana with her family and critters provides plenty of love and inspiration. www.RebeccaOndov.com
Rebecca has done it again, always interfering with my sleep as I can't put her book down! What an amazing and unique life she has been blessed with and I am so grateful that through her books I can share in it.”
Linda Foust Grajewski, executive director, Gaits to HeavenThe Ministry of the Horse
Rebecca is so descriptive, you almost feel as if you are riding along beside her on her adventures. Heavenly Horse Sense will make you laugh, cry, and think. The heavenly lessons Rebecca learned in each story will make you re-examine your own life experiences. What a pleasure to be able to read a book this wonderful.”
What a great book to teach us daily lessons of our faith with God. I love the descriptions Rebecca gives of the forests, weather and horses/mules antics. It makes you feel like you are right there; you can almost smell the trees, feel the tension as she makes it through some of the obstacles she and her horse go through and sometimes fully relate to what she is saying.”
I would highly recommend this book. Every chapter is exciting and every chapter has such a great message that can be applied to your life. Rebecca's day to day adventures along with how the Lord works in her life to overcome obstacles and understand situations is an inspiration to me.”
This is a book that will make you laugh; it will make you cry; most of all, you will be refreshed, encouraged and inspired by the lessons learned from Rebecca’s adventures. If you’re like me, an avid reader, you’ll find it hard not to keep reading the next story and the next, just to see how God teaches her through the events, some frightening, some maddening, some comical and some tragic that He leads her through. I loved it. You will, too.”
Being a horse and nature lover, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Rebecca Ondov’s Heavenly Horse Sense. Not only are her stories entertaining, but inspirational and spiritual as well. Her writing is so beautiful that I felt I was riding my horse next to her on the trail. I am sure that anyone who reads this book will love it; I know I did! You will enjoy the ride!”
I absolutely love Heavenly Horse Sense! Rebecca has a unique ability that allows me to experience every detail of her adventures as if I was right there. The Lord has also given her a special gift of spiritual eyes.’ She soaks up every detail of God's creation and is able to learn a valuable lesson from each situation. This is a book that I will definitely read more than once!”

"Being a horse lover myself and an all-around animal lover, not only do I enjoy the incredible vivid recount of Rebecca's adventures but I also enjoy Rebecca's relationship with God. Animals are God's way of showing us unconditional love and an eagerness to please even when we make mistakes. Rebecca's stories prove that if you open your eyes you can see God's love and handiwork and what it really means to have faith."

I treasured Rebecca's delightful way of sharing her personal relationship in Christ and her horsey relationships as well! I couldn't put her book down! Not that I desired to share in some of her adventures (!), but she wrote and shared like a kindred spirit in her journey with Christ and in her prayerfully interactions with Him each day_ And well, Heavenly Horse Sense was definitely a good title for her book!

After thoroughly enjoying Rebecca's first book "Horse Tales from Heaven" I was determined to read her newest offering. In accomplishing this I have not been disappointed. Rebecca's vivid descriptions of the mountains, terrain, and wildlife drew me into the stories so much so that I oftentimes lost track of time. I found myself at one point in the waiting room at my Doctor's office asking if I had missed my name being called. This is exactly what I expect when I read a very well written story. Rebecca's use of descriptive elements, foreshadowing of up coming events, the antagonistic situations and attitudes, and the ever present Protagonist of the Holy Spirit, guiding, teaching and leading her allows her stories to impact my life on a spiritual, emotional and intellectual level. I appreciate Rebecca's candor in not only recognizing her human weaknesses but especially in the way she allows her teachable spirit to learn and grow through these life lessons. I would heartily recommend this book to any horse lover, outdoor person and especially to those whose heart is to learn and grow through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. I will be buying copies of this book to share with family and friends. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
raroederKansasAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5This book makes a great devotional for anyboky.January 27, 2012raroederKansasAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have great admiration for Rebecca Ondov, who at a young age decided to follow her heart into a life of adventures doing what she loves. I am a little envious of her but more than that I am happy for her. In her adventures she has learned to trust God more and more, and He never let her down. I am thankful that Rebecca is now obeying the Lord as she allows us to experience her adventures and learn the lessons God has taught her.
What I really like about Rebecca is that she doesn't try to appear as being super spiritual. She is human like the rest of us and knows what it is to anger and to find it hard to like certain individuals. At the end, however, she always recognizes God's conviction and does something about it. She is always restored to fellowship with God and resumes her life of living in peace.
Heavenly Horse Sense is a great devotional book and has lessons for all of us, which if we will apply to our own lives will make us all better Disciples of Christ.
