Horses are animals that have been admired for their beauty and strength for centuries. Horses have carried soldiers into battle, pulled a plow to break tough soil and have been used to drive herds of cattle hundreds of miles to market. Today, many enjoy horses for trail riding, rodeo and even as pets. A horse that has been tamed and trained – a process often referred to as “breaking” – has proven to be an asset in myriad ways. The heart of a “broke” horse is willing, obedient, submitted, trusting and respectful.

Join author Whitney Cartrite-Huckaby as she illustrates the relationship of the Christian heart to the heart of a horse in her new book, “A Broke Heart: Revelation through the Eyes of a Horse into the Heart of God” (published by WestBow Press). Savor the beauty and empowerment of a willing and obedient heart in this enlightening comparison between equine training and the Christian faith.

Rich with Scripture, “A Broke Heart” takes readers into the round-pen with a horse as the author imparts revelations, encouragement and lessons learned.

An excerpt from the book:

“The revelations I have the joy of sharing with you are compilations of entries from my prayer journal over that last three years. A verse, topic of a sermon, or lyrics to a worship song would come to life while working with our colts. I would then feel prompted by the Holy Spirit to record what He’d spoken and taught me. The more I studied horses and spent time with them, the more I wrote. I then felt the nudge to put everything the Lord has been teaching me into the form of a book. So here you are sweet friend. It is my prayer that the Lord speaks to you, reveals a fresh dose of His love, and renews a tangible passion for His living Word that will bless you beyond measure.”
