Introducing A Book That Will Delight You

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…

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.

Stories that teach spiritual lessons, delight with humor, and make me lean in closer to God’s heart are my favorites! And this unlikely treasure of a book does just that. You will fall in love with Flash and the way Rachel Anne processes their story together.

Melanie ShankleWhen I first heard that Rachel Ridge had written a book about her family’s donkey, Flash, I had no idea what to expect. Nothing could have prepared me for such a delightful experience! I loved every page of Flash, and Rachel has such a gift for story telling that you can absolutely picture each scene. This book made me laugh at Flash’s antics and cry as I identified with the lessons He has taught her family about the way God loves us and sees us. This book will make you fall in love with our Savior all over again and, more than likely, make you hope you can have your own pet donkey someday.
