Six Legs and a Leash

One of the greatest joys I experience in my ministry through Sermons4Kids is the people I get to know.  I have formed friendships literally all over the world. Although I  never get to meet most of them "face to face," we form a friendship and our ministry to children is our bond.

One of the most interesting people I have come to know is Judy Brown. Judy began a very special ministry about seven years ago at the age of 72!  She has recently published a book about her ministry entitled "Six Legs and a Leash: Stories of a Therapy Dog." It is a delightfully told story about how God has used Judy and Reggie, her 120-pound Schnoodle, to minister to others.  Judy takes Reggie to churches, hospitals, nursing homes, and anywhere else where there are people in need of a message of hope and a touch of God's love.

I highly recommend Judy's book.  It is inspiring, entertaining, and even includes a good collection of sermons for children.  Hopefully, it will cause you to step out of your comfort zone and look for ways that God can use you to spread the Good News.  The book is available for purchase on Judy's website and also from and
