This is a perfect devotional for teens and tweens who love horses. With personification of the wonderful animals, the author uses a scripture for each devotion, ties it to a lesson learned from the horse and how that can be applied to humans and ends with practical advice. Each devotion also includes a beautiful photo of a horse or pony, so that’s truly a bonus for young people who love horses. I am not a real horse lover myself, but I did enjoy the devotions and I know that my teen and tween grandchildren would relate to these stories and totally enjoy them.

Cara Whitney grew up on a cattle farm in Northern Wisconsin. After spending a decade as a radio personality in markets that included Las Vegas, she found herself in search of that simpler life everyone talks about. She soon discovered that there is no such thing as a simple life, but instead your best lived life is one that includes a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Cara Whitney speaks with humor, authenticity, and a no-nonsense directness, making her an instant hit with people of all ages. She is a wife, a mother, and an author. Her debut book, Unbridled Faith, generated major media interest, including a national TV segment with Ainsley Earhardt on “Fox & Friends” (Fox News Network). Her message is clear and simple: “God is real, and He can be trusted.”
Now in her early forties, Cara says her family and her faith in Jesus Christ are her most important relationships. She and her husband Daniel (known by millions as Larry the Cable Guy) own a 180-acre farm in Nebraska where they take care of 12 horses. The couple have been married for 14 years and have two young children: Reagan and Wyatt.
Cara enjoys strong coffee, fast Internet, and cautious driving. Between trips to the grocery store and juggling dirty laundry, she has been called to evangelism. “I get up every day and live my life appreciating God’s gift of eternal life,” she says, “the gift He had been trying to give me since birth, the gift I kept avoiding. I know I am forgiven, and
God is enough. I want to share this gift with everyone–everywhere.”
