LitFuse Blog Tour Review: Life Lessons of a Horse Whisperer by Dr. Lew Sterrett


About the Book:
A champion trainer and true horse whisperer, Dr. Lew Sterrett has used patience and a firm but gentle hand to earn the trust of more than 3,500 horses. In this book, Lew tells the stories of his work with these horses and the lessons each one has taught him. Sometimes heartbreaking and often uplifting, Lew has condensed his lifetime of learning into messages for the Christian life. Today, Lew shares these messages with more than 50,000 people each year through horse training presentations at Miracle Mountain Ranch and nationally through his Sermon on the Mount Ministry.

The author’s engaging style and adroit mixture of well-tested anecdotes and thoughtful instruction make this a winning read-and not just for horse lovers.

About the Author:
A champion trainer and true horse whisperer, Dr. Lew Sterrett has used patience and a firm but gentle hand to earn the trust of more than 3,500 horses. Dr. Lew Sterrett (Ph. D) had little idea that his boyhood interest in horses would open doors internationally for speaking and training. During his years in 4-H, he savored many opportunities to train and show horses and earn national recognition. As a student leader at Penn State University he benefited from many mentoring relationships from which he received valuable training, experience and honors. This foundation provided a basis for an extensive horse career with a unique emphasis on training youth and community leaders.

Lew has served as the Executive Director of Miracle Mountain Ranch Missions, Inc. (MMRM) since 1977. MMRM, located in northwestern Pennsylvania, is home for a summer youth camp, and a leadership training center for youth, adult, and family groups. He has also promoted safety in public riding programs, serving as President of the Certified Horse Association for 7 years. A licensed pastor, certified Youth, Marriage and Family Counselor, he earned his PhD from North Tennessee Seminary in 2007.

My Review:
This will be a short and sweet little review, much like the book itself. This was a wonderful little non-fiction book. I have told myself that I wouldn’t be reading much non-fiction books this year but I am pleased that I was able to read this book. It’s a book filled with one of the most prettiest creatures on earth: horses, and how one man spends his time on his ministry and training these wonderful creatures from God. The pictures in this book were just absolutely beautiful…really capturing God in each one with it’s beauty. The lessons that shine through the pages of this book are wonderful when working with animals like the horses, however, I feel that the lessons can be applied to life in general. Dr. Sterrett really put his life work of Sermon on the Mount into this wonderful book that I am glad I had a chance to read. This book was a short and easy read. One that I would recommend with 4 stars to everyone who enjoys one of God’s beautiful creations, horses, and for everyone in general, as this book is God shining through the work of a wonderful man and his ability with beautiful horses!
