Blind Hope: An Unwanted Dog and the Woman She Rescued by Kim Meeder and Laurie Sacher

Blind Hope is a powerful story of love.   We are taken on a journey with Kim Meeder and Laurie Sacher.  It is a journey of love for a dirty unkempt dog Laurie rescues from an abusive home.  When she rescued the dog she named Mia, she did not know how much this little dog could teach her about love and God's grace.

Laurie had sought love and acceptance from other people.  She would hide her true self and put on masks she thought others wanted to see.  It was only when she brought Mia home with her did she really learn true acceptance.  Because of Mia's peace and contentment in spite of going blind, Laurie learned to lean on God to bring her to the understanding of her past and hope for her future. 

I enjoyed reading this book because it also helped me to listen to God and lean on Him more in my own struggles.  I recommend this book to others who are animal loves but also to others who need to listen to God's teachings through everyday life and living.  I intend to keep this book to read again and again when I find myself trying to live life on my terms. 

This book was given to me by Multnomah Waterbrook in exchange for an honest review.
