Ok, I love this donkey! Read "Flash: The Homeless Donkey Who Taught Me about Life, Faith, and Second Chances" by Rachel Anne Ridge!
Overview: 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.
there is ever a good time to discover a wounded, frightened, bedraggled
donkey standing in your driveway, this wasn’t it. The local sheriff
dismissed Flash as “worthless.” But Rachel didn’t believe that, and she
couldn’t turn him away. She brought Flash into her struggling family
during their darkest hour―and he turned out to be the very thing they
needed most. Flash is the true story of their adventures together
in learning to love and trust; breaking down whatever fences stood in
their way; and finding the strength, confidence, and faith to carry on.
Prepare to fall in love with Flash: a quirky, unlikely hero with
gigantic ears, a deafening bray, a personality as big as Texas, and a
story you’ll never forget.
Dawn's Recommendation: 5 of 5 Stars
I loved the beautiful stories about Flash, the donkey, and his family and the lessons that God taught Ms. Ridge through Flash. They are lessons for everyone (from friendship to fear to stepping out in faith). With each story, readers fall more and more in love with Flash. After reading this book, everyone will want their very own donkey!
The book is a fast read and is well-written. I enjoyed the author sharing personal stories of her art business, family, and dog, Beau too. I also loved that the life-lessons are listed in the back as a review. This a sweet memoir that will make your summer!
