Solomon is a horse who lost his herd. Jodi wasn’t looking for another animal to add to her struggling therapy ranch. She was going through a period of deep loss and grief. But something happened with that horse. Hear this powerful story of resilience, sacrifice, and love on Chris Fabry Live.
Jennifer Bleakley is the author of Project Solomon: The True Story of a Lonely Horse Who Found a Home-and Became a Hero, Joey: How a Blind Horse Helped Others Learn to See, and Pawverbs: Inspiring Stories for the Animal Lover's Heart. Jen has a master's degree in counseling and worked as a grief counselor for several years before staying home with her children. Somewhere in between countless loads of laundry, library story-time, petting zoos, and the blessed hours of nap time, Jen discovered a way to combine her lifelong love of animals and her longing to encourage others with her passion for writing. Jen often says that animals have much to teach us about ourselves, about each other, and about God, but in order to learn from them we must learn to paws and pay attention. (She also really loves a good pun!) Jen lives in Raleigh, N.C., with her husband, Darrell, their two children, Andrew and Ella, and a menagerie of pets, including a rescue cat, a hardy Beta fish, a sloth-like dragon, and a very needy Golden retriever.
