Anyone who has ever loved an animal knows that our furry friends often have spiritual lessons to teach us. Whether they are lessons about friendship, loyalty, affection, or how not to take ourselves too seriously, their presence in our lives makes us more human. Paws to Reflect: 365 Devotions for the Animal Lover's Soul shares a reading for each day of the year from Devon O'Day and Kim McLean. As you observe the animal kingdom through their stories, you'll discover insight and wisdom that our animal friends wish to impart to us.
Sometimes human communication falls short in conveying spiritual truth. God speaks through whatever means He chooses and often he chooses animals. Dogs teach unconditional love. The purr of a kitten can bring peace. Horses show us how to harness our strength with grace.
Paws to Reflect offers gentle daily reflections for those who seek to grow spiritually by observing the animal kingdom and all the lessons it teaches.
