More Than I Could Ask For

I volunteer with Warm Beach Camp Horsemanship. 2020 was my first year with the program, and it was remarkable!

At first, I was a little bit wary of connecting with another group of horsewomen, as I had “PTSD” of sorts from my experiences at stables with other strong horsewomen. I felt God tugging at my elbow though, so I went through the volunteer registration process and set a date to meet Ginger at the Warm Beach Camp stables.

Ginger and I had so much in common; so many similar life experiences we were blown away. We ended up praying together and hugging before I left. I was invited to come out two days later to help train a horse. I expected to be shoveling manure, but instead I would be riding!

I rode a lovely Percheron mare. The following week I attended volunteer training for the adaptive riding and vaulting program. I went as often as I could. Everyone I met, both staff and fellow volunteers were absolutely fabulous!

Over the past three years my family lost our farm, horses, and beloved father and husband of 39 years. We were devastated.  We’ve been totally embraced, supported, and encouraged this past year, all while a pandemic raged. I trusted God would finish what he started in me, and He has been entirely faithful.

God assembled a remarkable team of men and women for healing, instructing, and mentoring at the Warm Beach Camp stables. His love is a banner over Warm Beach Camp, from the offices to the pastures.

I give thanks daily with tears of joy and gratitude.  It is truly more than I could ever ask for! I look forward to many more years, God willing.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
