Blind Hope by Kim Meeder and Laurie Sacher is one of those books that you just don’t want to put down. You want to see what realization Laurie has each new page.
It’s not only about a dog that no one wanted- it’s about the life of a woman that this dog (Mia) changed.
Laurie tells Kim about each new adventure or misadventure she has with Mia. Laurie realizes that she has been like Mia all of her life. Mia has numerous medical problems, one being that is losing her eye site. As she is trying to train Mia to follow her voice and commands- she sees that this is the type of relationship she has needed with God all along. To fully trust and depend on listening to God. That he hasn’t left her, she just has followed his voice.
In chapter 11, Kim asked Laurie- “the fact is, strength doesn’t come strength- it grows out of our weakness. For us to become dependable, we first have to walk through the process of being truly dependent. Does that make sense?” Blind Hope really makes you think and consider your own relationships, especially with God.
It’s a great book and I really enjoyed reading it. I think you will too. Although I was given a copy this book from Waterbrook Multnomah for review purposes, these are my true feelings.
