Erin and ShaninI've been horse crazy my whole life, but once I started having kids, horses went on the back burner.  When Shanin adopted Sunny she needed help cleaning out the abscess on Sunny's back and I was lucky enough to be able to help her with it.  

When Shanin started adopting more horses, I thought maybe she'd gone a little crazy.  But what a joy to have a best friend go horse crazy and get to be a part of it.  When she started talking about turning the rescue horses into a ministry I was immediately in it heart and soul.

Overall, my life has been a happy one.  I was lucky enough to have a great childhood with loving parents and have had five wonderful children of my own.  But I've had my struggles as well.  At the age of 21 I had my first child who had a very serious seizure disorder and passed away a month before his second birthday.  On top of that, I was in an abusive marriage and couldn't admit it to myself.

Because of these trials, I have a real heart for those who are going through grief or trying to extract themselves from an abusive relationship.  I know that the long term effects of both of these issues go on for the rest of our lives.  I'm now eighteen years out from the loss of my child and thirteen years out from the end of my first marriage and I see how God placed people in my life to help me along, to better understand him, but in my own mind, I'm still much like Brandy. Slow to trust, still protecting my heart, but wanting the love that he so freely gives.
