Lessons from horses on life, God


YORK, S.C. — Author Linda Amick Algire fondly remembers spending time with her horses at her grandparents’ farm. This love stayed with her throughout life and inspired her future ownership of four horses of her own. Algire studied natural horsemanship and shares these lessons in her new book, “Thank You, God, for Everything — Especially Horses” (published by WestBow Press), an in-depth look at horses and the lessons they can teach their owners about life and God.

“There are wonderful parallels between what horses teach humans and what God wants us to learn,” Algire says. “Perhaps this gracious creature, the horse, is a gift to help us truly understand what God wants to share.”

“Thank You, God, for Everything — Especially Horses” explores the lessons horses can teach about trust, respect, appropriateness, patience, forgiveness, presence, decision making and more. The book combines the author’s love of horsemanship and faith. Even for readers unfamiliar with horses, the author’s personal journey of faith and love will serve as an inspiration.
