Prepare to embark on an exhilarating journey through the rugged landscapes of the Wild West in my eagerly awaited second book, "Sovereign Rein." Within its pages, you'll discover 17 captivating true stories that offer a glimpse into my cowboy lifestyle, a life deeply intertwined with faith and the timeless teachings of the Bible. In this literary adventure, I aim to illuminate the profound connection between our daily existence and the scriptures we hold dear.
"Sovereign Rein" is not just a title; it's a testament to the unwavering sovereignty of our Creator. The clever wordplay of 'rein' as a horse's bridle symbolizes how He guides and reigns over our lives. For those who journeyed with me through my first book, "You Can't Crack That Egg Twice," you caught a glimpse of the picturesque ranch life, its magnificent horses, and the cherished animals that make it home.
Now, in my second book, you'll delve even deeper into the heartwarming tales of this remarkable place. Whether I'm in the saddle or under the spotlight, one constant remains my unwavering belief in a Sovereign God who watches over us all. Moreover, I want to share the stories of my incredible family, the ones who stand by my side through thick and thin.
Tracy and Hailey, always there to help saddle a horse or navigate a challenging hospital corridor, exemplify the unwavering support that binds us. In these captivating stories, you'll see the essence of my cowboy life, centered on faith, family, patriotism, and the beloved Western industry. I'm immensely grateful to Leadership Books for placing their trust in a cowboy who had to conquer reading and writing twice over to pen this book and share these cherished stories.
As you immerse yourself in the pages of "Sovereign Rein," I hope you'll find inspiration, joy, and a renewed sense of the Bible's profound influence on our everyday lives. Thank you for believing in me and for choosing to make "Sovereign Rein" a part of your literary journey. Saddle up, dear readers, and let the adventure begin!
