On Chris Fabry Live you’re going to meet Joey. Well, you’ll hear about Joey, because Joey can’t talk. Joey’s a horse, a beautiful Appaloosa. His show career was cut short by an injury, so he moved from one owner to another, until neglect and abuse left him blind. He nearly died. We’ll talk about his odyssey and the people this wounded horse’s life touched and helped heal on Chris Fabry Live.
Jennifer Bleakley’s love of the written word began with a coffee pot. As a shy young girl, she found it hard to verbally communicate what was in her heart. Her perceptive father began writing notes to her and leaving them in front of the coffee pot for her to find in the morning. Jen took great delight in replying to her dad—leaving her own notes for him to find. Thus beginning their “coffee pot chronicles,” and Jen’s lifelong love of the written word.
Jen holds a master’s degree in mental health counseling, and worked for several years as a grief counselor before relocating to NC with her husband and staying home with their two children. With her career plans on hold, and while living in a sea of dirty laundry, Cheerios and apple juice stains, Jen found comfort in journaling—recording evidences of God’s hand, still at work, even in the midst of the mundane. Her journaling morphed into a blog, where she still writes regularly about glimpsing God’s grace in our daily lives.
Jen is a contributing author for Treasuring Christ Curriculum and She Believes Online Bible studies, and she writes curriculum and devotionals for her local church in Raleigh, NC. And even though she once swore she was too introverted to speak from a stage, she has found that God’s grace is big enough to allow her to do just that, and now delights in speaking about His extraordinary grace.
Kim Tschirret is the founder & CEO of Hope Reins. Kim came from a home where her father was successful in all his business endeavors but an alcoholic at home. Her childhood was void of the unconditional love of a father and developed a performance-based mentality to earn my father’s love. They shared a passion for horses but Kim's dad always pushed her to show. She says, "all I ever wanted to do was be in the stall, take care of my horse and ride… I always wanted the relationship with my horse." This young desire has been nurtured into fruition at Hope Reins. The founding hope for Hope Reins of Raleigh is Inspire True Hope and Real Healing. We want to help more people, help more kids and more than anything else glorify the Lord!
