Paws, Purpose, and Possibilities: How Therapy Dogs and Faith Healed My Heart

Life’s journey can be unpredictable. We’re often faced with situations beyond what we think we can cope with. We may find ourselves in places and living a life we think we’ve shaped, only to find as we look back, that God often has opened doors and planted us in places we could never have imagined on our own.

Paws, Purpose, and Possibilities is the story of a woman who tried to find meaning in her grief over the overwhelming loss of her beloved sister, Karen. Karen lost her battle with colon cancer at the age of forty-one. This is a journey with therapy dogs in memory of Karen and her love for dogs.

Read about the how-to's and why’s of therapy dogs and the wonderful people who do this work. Along the way, read how faith and an acknowledgment of God’s goodness and God’s grace were ever-present.
