For the first time, you can now get all three novels in Stephen Bly’s Horse Dreams Series together in one trilogy book. In the first novel of this series, Memories of a Dirt Road, we meet Develyn Worrell. Develyn, or Devvy for short, is a fifth-grade schoolteacher from southern Indiana who is broken-hearted about her husband's death and her daughter's decision not to come home for the summer. To clear her mind, Devvy decides to find a little dirt road town in Wyoming where she vacationed as a child. She fondly remembers the quaintness of the small town, the beautiful sunsets, and an remarkable Roan horse that has captivated her dreams ever since. Desperately wanting to experience that peace and tranquility again, Devvy embarks on a journey to find the town. When she arrives, she purchases her very own Roan mare, rents a little cabin with an incredible sunset view, and watches as God brings three very important men into her life. In the second part of the Horse Dreams Series trilogy, The Mustang Breaker, heavy-hearted Develyn Worrell’s mood is changing as she begins to escape the worries of her past and enjoy the equine charms of her picture-perfect small Wyoming town. It is there that the Lord’s leading is beginning to become clear, even as cowboy romances and the relationship with her grown daughter get more complicated. In the third and final installment of the Horse Dreams trilogy, soul-searching Develyn Worrell has finally found her groove. Ready to savor the end of summer in small town Wyoming, she settles in to enjoy “end of summer” peace and contentment. That is, until her daughter pays a visit, an eclectic friend plans to marry, a suspicious stranger enters the picture, and a dear mentor suffers a heart attack. Just as she begins to feel as if the world is closing in on her once again, the steady friendship of Cooper Tallon comes to her rescue. He may lack the charm and flash of other cowboys, but he always seems to have just what Develyn's heart needs. As her relationship with Cooper blooms and her faith and trust in the Lord grows, she looks forward to the unwritten chapters of her life.

Horses inhabit our dreams, carrying us to safety or on wild adventures. Some of our dream horses fly, others have magical powers. Whatever our dreams of horses might be, they inhabit a universe of freedom and power. They also involve a lot of work, care and sacrifice. Horses and riders achieve great heights, some in jumping, some in dressage, some on endurance rides. This anthology explores the meaning of horses -- and some donkeys -- in the lives of women from many places. They walk, trot, canter, gallop and fly. And some refuse to budge. Horses inspire boldness and trust and provide us with the means to be transported into other realms, to fulfil our girldreams, our horsedreams.

""Why do you have to nag so much?"" Dad yelled across the living room at Mom. ""You know the divorce is final, and this is the last time we will do anything together as a family, so just let it alone!"" My heart squeezed as the power of Dad's words rang out clear through the walls and thrust daggers at my chest. Feeling dizzy, I grabbed for the bedpost and quickly surveyed my best friends' eyes all wide with surprise, as they heard, just like me, this shocking news for the very first time. I wanted to run and scurry into the nearest hole. But before going down, I took a long deliberate breath and struggled to display my last ounce of courage. Having just shared her dreams and plans with friends, of racing her horse Medallion up the bluebonnet covered hills near her beloved home, Becky's birthday celebration comes to an abrupt halt. Triggered by the announcement of her parents' divorce, her peaceful life begins to collapse one step at a time like a shaky row of dominos all lined up and destined to fall. Becky must then find the courage to reach beyond herself for the help both she and her palomino will need to survive.

By exploring the deepest insights from your dreams, you can find out more about who you are and your purpose in life, then discern what gifts you are born to give to others and your needs that others can meet. The author has pioneered a theory of the progressive development of dreams throughout the sleeping period. He shows how our dreams are expressions of the underlying dreams of nature itself, the secret life of the Gaia world revealed as a vast, living, self-regulating organism. The key to this unique and dramatic interpretive method unfolds in fantastically illustrated pages that explain how to keep and use a dream journal to identify your most important patterns and themes, and analyze their messages.

When Carol Chapman sold her home in Connecticut, she soon found herself on one of those roads less traveled and that has made all the difference. Arriving in Texas, she bought a ranch and created The Last Refuge, a sanctuary for unwanted dogs, cats, goats, and, most of all, for horses, mules, and donkeys that were destined for the slaughterhouse. Meet Chipper, a chocolate Lab who not only participates in nursing horses back to health, but has also raised cats, lambs, and baby chicks. Learn how goats secretly yearn for the mountains of their ancestors and happily leap onto the hood of a car to illustrate that point. Follow Chapman around for a day and discover that it's hard to get out of shape when caring for horses-if lugging what has to go in one end (massive buckets of water, sixty-pound bales of hay, and fifty-pound bags of grain) doesn't keep a waistline trim, shoveling up piles of what comes out the other end will. Grab a cup of coffee, pull up a hay bale, and enjoy Chapman's unconventional collection of earthy, hilarious, but always heart-warming and timeless reminiscences.

Understanding the Dreams You Dream: Biblical Keys for Hearing God's Voice in the Night not only provides insight into your dreams and life, but also includes a comprehensive dictionary of dream symbols! You will be guided through the complex world of dreams by a minister with decades of experience receiving, understanding, and interpreting dreams of his own and for others. Through Scripture-based meditation, much can be understood about your dreams; but many Christians don't know how to meditate. This problem is addressed in three different ways: Specific, detailed directions are given on how and upon what to meditate. Personal examples of dreams from the author's own experiences. Practical dictionary of symbol definitions is included. This book presents both normal and not-so-normal dream situations. You will learn that to apply only one type of dream interpretation to all dreams is restricting each symbol to only one possible definition, which is incorrect. And you will learn how to tell the difference between a dream from God-and those from evil sources.
