“He Came Looking For Me; A True Story of Hope and Redemption”“He Came Looking For Me; A True Story of Hope and Redemption”
Lynn Baber, a resident of Weatherford, will be available to sign copies of her book, “He Came Looking For Me; A True Story of Hope and Redemption” from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12 at Agape Coffee Haus Bookstore, 108 Jearl St. in Aledo.

Synopsis:
The little girl reached her small hand through the rails of the fence I was tied to and touched my poor sunburned face. For just a moment I touched her back. As her fingers left my face she said to me, "hope you find a nice home." Her father didn't say it, but he knew that probably wasn't going to happen.

The pair moved down the aisle of the auction barn away from me, our brief encounter already forgotten. Will this horse doomed for slaughter be ransomed?

Author Lynn Baber helps Shiner, the lost son of a prize Appaloosa mare, share his true story of rescue in “He Came Looking For Me.” But Shiner's story is more than just a simple tale of how two horses returned to their real home, it is the story of promise and victory for each one of us in a relationship with Jesus Christ. No matter how far away, how alone, how defeated you feel today, there is One who is searching for you and will redeem you just when you are most in need. Shiner came home. Discover how you can, too. From team building, to horsemanship, to Christian victory, Lynn Baber shares inspirational and practical messages in a style that runs the gamut from high-energy to porch swing casual. Join Lynn Baber for this inspirational tale of two wayward horses and find for yourself the peace and joy that come from finding a home in God.
