A champion trainer and true horse whisperer, Dr. Lew Sterrett has used patience and a firm but gentle hand to earn the trust of more than 3,500 horses. In this book, Lew tells the stories of his work with these horses and the lessons each one has taught him. Sometimes heartbreaking and often uplifting, Lew has condensed his lifetime of learning into messages for the Christian life. Today, Lew shares these messages with more than 50,000 people each year through horse training presentations at Miracle Mountain Ranch and nationally through his Sermon on the Mount Ministry.
The author's engaging style and adroit mixture of well-tested anecdotes and thoughtful instruction make this a winning read-and not just for horse lovers.

This was a joy for me to review, as I also spent most of my life with horses and can relate to the experiences of Dr. Lew Sterrett. In this powerful testimony to the grace of God, Dr. Lew relates his experiences with horses and the similarities with people. He uses these experiences to counsel kids and adults alike to be all that they can be in the will of God. I have nothing but praise for this man who has given so much and persevered in the face of adversity and found the life that God has predestined for him for the betterment for so many of God’s children. God gave us stewardship over the animals, not to abuse them but also to nourish them, to respect them and to listen to their stories through their behavior towards men. I believe Dr. Sterrett really understands this concept of stewardship in his life. All creatures have a story to tell not by what they say, but how they act towards others. All living creatures including men demand to be listened to and deserve to be respected for who they are. When these things do not happen, unacceptable behavior is wrongly seen as the only alternative for self preservation.
I give this easy to read book a 5 out of 5. However due the clear message to people in this book it should be rated 10 out of 5. Get this book and be taught these lessons from the animal world.
