"Live like someone left the gate open."
Meet HenryJust when you think it’s the end of your story . . . grace shows up.
Sometimes it arrives as a moment of joy in the middle of despair. Sometimes you find it next to a trusted friend along an old, well-trodden path. And sometimes, grace has fuzzy ears, a bristled mane, and hope for a new start.
Join Rachel Anne Ridge, author of the beloved memoir Flash, in a journey back to the pasture. As she adopts a second rescue donkey as a little brother for Flash―a miniature named Henry―she finds that walking with donkeys has surprising lessons to teach us about prayer, renewing our faith, and connecting to God in fresh ways.
Readers all over the world fell in love with Flash and with Rachel’s thoughtful, funny, and poignant stories about what life with a donkey can teach you. Now, meet Henry and join him on a walk that could change everything about how you hope, trust, and move forward from past regrets.
Rachel Anne Ridge was at the end of her rope. The economy had crashed, taking her formerly thriving business along with it. She had been a successful artist, doing work she loved, but now she felt like a failure. How would her family pay their bills? What would the future hold? If only God would somehow let them know that everything was going to be all right…
who started it all
And then, Flash the donkey showed up.
If there were ever a good time to discover a wounded, frightened, bedraggled donkey standing in your driveway, this wouldn’t have been it. The local sheriff dismissed him as “worthless.” But Rachel didn’t believe that, and she couldn’t turn him away. She brought him into her struggling family during their darkest hour–and he turned out to be the very thing they needed most.
Flash is the wonderful true story of their adventures together in learning to love and trust, breaking down the fences that stood in their way, and finding the strength and confidence to carry on.
