As both a raiser of wool sheep, and a Christian I was really excited to see this book. All sheep and all shepherds are individuals, and have different experiences- but Sharon states that her sheep just would not come when they heard her call- and that as a general statement of sheep just is not correct. Perhaps with 6 children and 2 adults in the family, their sheep just didn't have a single shepherd figure- or with their very unique sheep handling system of frequently lying the sheep on their backs for hoof trimming or bathing (crutching); her sheep just don't want to come. Our sheep are also self-centered and will not come if they have just eaten and have comfortably settled down to chew their cuds- but our flock leaders (sheep always follow other sheep first!) always answer my call with a baaa. [Flock leader sheep are always mature, strong healthy individuals- that the rest of the sheep wait on to lead them. Flock leader sheep are chosen by the sheep themselves, but a shepherd will get rid of a leader sheep that chooses to lead the flock astray.] Very comfortable sheep baaa to let the shepherd know where they are, and sort of say "if you want to be with us we're over here." When the sheep are even a bit hungry, or stressed in any way the sheep do come when the shepherd calls. Very hungry sheep come very quickly.
As a Christian I found the book too charismatic.

Thank you, Sharon, for sharing your heart and daily trials with us in your journey with Christ! You have done amazing things with Jesus as your Shepherd! I want to share this book with everyone, but it touched me just where I needed... so know I will be re-reading it again, and have to buy other books to share! Whether you find yourself as the helpless sheep dirtying your own food/water, or the shepherd with fragile sheep who've been abandoned, or anywhere in between, this book is a great reminder that God's love is big enough!

My friend Sharon has chronicled her story full of care-filled, humorous and sometimes surprising insights gathered through becoming a true shepherdess of sheep. Her description of Joey and how the spirit of rejection was broken through the unconditional love of a loving and caring family paint a vivid portrait of how our heavenly Father wants to bring the lost into his arms. I can personally testify she lives her love for God out in everyday life both in her family and friendships! Thank you Sharon for helping us look into God's loving heart through the pages of this book.

What a delightful book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Sharon's experiences and her ability to coincide those experiences with Scripture were amazing. Thank you.
