From her earliest childhood memories with animals to her late beloved dog, Shadrach the Neo Mastiff, Dr. Kim shares in Animals Taught Me That (publication date December 2, 2009) how God has used His creatures to teach her the life lessons we need to grow in character and integrity.
Through her trials and errors, often at the expense of a beloved pet, Kim shares her mistakes and encourages the readers to learn from them.
The most important aspect of this book is how selflessly animals are in teaching us without judgment. Cry and laugh with Kim as you journey through the stories of all the animals that have graced her life, including both wild and domestic.
Kim’s hope is not only that you will learn life’s most important lessons, but that the animals in your life will be honored for who they are and how much they really do mean in our lives.
Beautifully illustrated by professional artist, Barbara Hilford, the illustrations bring the animals to life to tug at your heartstrings and woo you through the pages of Animals Taught Me That .
Give people a fact or an idea and you enlighten their minds; tell them a story and you touch their souls. ~Hasidic Proverb
But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. ~Job 12:7-10, NIV
