This devotional book is about the pets and animals that God has brought into my life. Each one of these animals taught me valuable lessons. Cowbell and Marshmellow are cats owned by my daughter, Stephanie. Each of these cats has her own personality and has brought much laughter into our lives. Ispep was a dog I owned while a missionary to the Apache Indians. He was full of energy and was really an intelligent dog. Lucky the duck was the first pet I ever owned. The cows were not exactly pets as they were owned by the mission in Arizona, and were there to help the Apache children learn about responsibility. As you read these stories, please allow God to do a work in your life.
