Kendra, Ruth-Ann, and Megan are best friends who enjoy riding their ponies together. When Kendra receives and English saddle for her birthday, the girls start dreaming of flying over fences and hedges like the riders they’ve seen on TV and in jumping classes at horse shows. But Kendra discovers that her pony, Star, won’t jump over even the smallest obstacle.
Together the three friends form the Ready to Ride Club (R2R) and begin taking riding lessons from Trish Klein. Trish knows a lot about horses and ponies, and a lot about people. For example, she knows no one is perfect. Another very important thing she knows is that God can always be trusted.
The first book in the Ready to Ride series will remind you that all people (and horses) are different in one way or another, but God has made all of them special. Sometimes we need to be patient with others and even with ourselves as we grow and learn and develop the gifts God has given us.

First one ranch hand, then two, and then her brother Mitch fall ill.

John Chrysostom : The Preacher In The Emperor’s Court$11.99Add to cart
There was something about John Chrysostom and the words he spoke that lit up his world.
He was an important leader of the early church, known so much for his preaching and public speaking that he was given the nickname Golden Mouth. He spoke his mind and followed his convictions. He refused to host the lavish social gatherings that his predecessors had laid on. This meant that John Chrysostom really annoyed the wealthy citizens of Constantinople. He spoke out against how many influential Christians cared little for the poor.
“It is madness to fill your cupboards with clothing while other human beings stand naked and trembling with the cold so that they can hardly hold themselves upright.”
It didn’t matter if you were rich or poor John spoke the truth – emphatically. Even the empress fell under his criticism which eventually led to his exile and death.
