Ep. 16 Wisdom, grace, and a donkey with author Rachel Anne Ridge

What a delight to welcome my long-time blogging friend and acclaimed author Rachel Anne Ridge to Sorta Awesome! Publisher’s Weekly listed her book Flash: The Homeless Donkey Who Taught Me about Life, Faith, and Second Chances one of their Best Summer Books 2015. Today, she joins us to talk about coffee, parenting (especially parenting teens! eek!), and a donkey named Flash who changed everything for their family.
