I recently reread this book. I read it when it first came out and I thought it was a really good book. Then I picked it up and wow I loved how much I could relate or just needed that encouragement from the information in the book. Kim Meeder and her husband Troy are good friends of mine. Some of my friends know that they own a ranch in Central Oregon called Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch. They rescue horses and team them up with children. I fell in love with this ranch when I visited it in 2009. Since then I have gone many times and I love this place so much. It’s become my home away from home. The ranch is a peaceful, restful healing place for me and I have volunteered there a lot.
Kim is an amazing writer I feel like I’m there when she writes. She is an amazing woman of God and her life now reflects what God has done and is doing in her life. The ranch is a refuge for those who want to know Him more. Kim follows what God instructs her to do Pray Listen and Do. Her stories in this book are simple acts of obedience. The stories offer Hope and encouragement. Kim says ” That’s the wild simplicity of our God.”
This book is about stories of people Kim and Troy have met and how just being there for them has helped others in so many ways. God has lead a lot of different people into their lives but because Kim is willing to do whatever God asks of her people’s lives have been changed. She spreads the gospel who this wild God is to her. She trusts Him with her whole entire life.
Her testimony of her life and meeting the Lord at 9 years old through a horse. This book is very inspiring. She offers practical everyday ways to persue and trust Him no matter what we go through in our lives. I was going to share some stories but I can’t write and capture it the way Kim can. This book I would highly recommend everyone to read.
We all have different journeys in our lives. I’m learning how to Listen, pray and Do. It’s not always easy but it’s a really rewarding place to be. What path has God led you to be on? Where is He leading you in your life? Are you able to allow down and really listen to what the Lord is telling you. I have learned a lot from this and I see God using me every day to make a difference in the lives of others, especially those precious children. God also uses me in prayer. I’m a big prayer Warrior and have seen also things through prayer. My heart and soul is for people.
Follow your passions and Christ will meet you where you are in life.
