Publisher Comments:

Cross Over Troubled Waters Hope is like the stars-always there, yet shining brightest in the blackest of nights. It is like the dawn, always rising anew. Hope is for everyone, and that includes you. This collection of more than twenty true stories from a ranch of rescued dreams unveils the heart of true strength and the character of genuine courage. Experience for yourself the kind of love and hope that change a person from the inside out. Because sometimes, just believing in someone is enough for them to start believing in themselves. It's the galvanizing truth that no matter how deep your pain...God's love exceeds it still. Sometimes, just believing in someone is enough for them to start believing in themselves... Without raising his eyes to look at me, in a voice barely clearing the horizon of a whisper, he said,"I know you don't love me... You just say that 'cuz you're an adult and it's kinda like your job. But I know you don't reallylove me." Suffering and blessing balance on the same high wire, each giving stability and depth to the other. The one that we feel the most...is ultimately the one that we give the most. It was her eyes that gave her away. The conflict of her mortal illness versus her will raged behind them. Her body shouted,"I'm sick and it's getting harder and harder to do the things I love!" while her indomitable will shouted back,"Yeah, but I'm just a little kid, and little kids should get to ride horses!" What a relief it is when we begin to understand that it is within our hardships that truth is elevated from our hearts to our heads. "During the darkest days I'd ever known, I was introduced to the unconditional love of a little horse and a merciful God, and my life has never been the same," says author Kim Meeder. And her book proves that hope is not only for us to keep...but to give. "Stirring, encouraging, and inspirational, Bridge Called Hopereminds us that hope is heaven sent for everyone, and that we, too, can make a positive difference in others' lives." -Eric Close, Actor "Kim Meeder vibrantly shares-and lives-an amazing story of hope and restoration. A triumph of recovery for wounded hearts!" -Louie Giglio, Director, Passion Conferences, and bestselling author Story Behind the Book "I was moved to write Hope Risingand Bridge Called Hopebecause, when I needed it the most, someone shared hope with me and it saved my life. During the darkest days I'd ever known, I was introduced to the unconditional love of a little horse and a merciful God, and my life has never been the same. Everything in our life is about choices. We cannot control our circumstances, but we cancontrol how we choose to feel about them. The pain that we feel in this life is certain. What is equally certain is how we choose to feel about the pain. It can destroy us-or it can define us. The choice is uniquely ours." -Kim Meeder
