Book 9: With All You Are

Sometimes, real-life events make Scripture sink deeper into our hearts than any sermon or Sunday school class. Rosie couldn’t have imagined that bull riding, a kind Amish family, and a mystery involving five Saddlebred horses would help her come to truly understand the commandment Jesus called the greatest: “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.”
