Grant received from the United Way Endowment Fund

Friday, December 17th, 2010

We are very grateful and excited to receive our first grant money from the United Way Endowment Fund. This funding will go towards Equine Assisted Counseling programs for at-risk teens within Marion County. The programs are experiential using horses to help youth manage emotions and change behaviors while having fun in a peaceful ranch setting. If you know of any teens needing Counseling for Anger Management, Social Skills and Behavioral Modification, please have them contact us for information on qualifying for these programs.

God is so faithful in moving this ministry forward and bringing the right people on board to help with our programs. Keep an eye on our website for the opportunity to participate in some of our adult programs in the coming year. And please, give generously to the United Way who uses their funds for local helping agencies.

We wish everyone who is a part of this ranch a wonderful Christmas Season and prosperous New Year.

Blessings to all,
Trish & Gary

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

This is a new blog about how God speaks to us through His creation;  nature. Seeing beauty in everyday things and learning from the animals, plants, trees and all that His creation encompasses are the things you will read about in this blog. There is a message to us from the ranch daily if we have the eyes to see and the ears to hear what nature has learned from its Creator and is freely sharing with all of us. The message I receive may not be the same one you receive but I will share my thoughts and the word I hear from God. I would love to hear back from you about the message you receive from my stories and what God speaks to you through His creation.  More to come soon….

There will also be news of things that are happening here on the ranch.

Blessings from Trish
