Superwoman? Super mom? Or just super dependent on Jesus? At age 51, Bonnie Walker was already the mother of 21 children, 18 of whom were adopted. She was “semi-retired” from adoption. She thought her family was finished expanding. God had other plans. Unexpectedly, six siblings, with ages ranging from newborn to 10, needed help. Bonnie would have to battle with bureaucracy before she could help them.

With raw transparency, Refuge Ranch: The Glory Continues shares the struggles, fears, and heartaches Walker and her family experienced during this time, alongside the ecstatic joy of being called to steward and bring Jesus' healing love to six more hurting hearts. Bonnie draws readers into her life, exposing all the chaotic struggles of walking by faith, and through her story, readers experience the results that obedience can bring—how broken lives can be restored by God's love, and how obedience to Christ and His empowering Spirit provides us with faith to walk out what we're called to do.

Bonnie's story proclaims a rallying cry against the injustices done to foster children, asking for new laws that will protect and speak for children who are unable to speak for themselves. Her story will inspire you to walk your own journey—whatever it may be—with a faith and tenacious passion that only can be accessed through Jesus. She'll stir hearts called to adoption into a full-blown flame of passion for every hurting and homeless child, boldly declaring that adoption is not just a good thing, it's a God thing.
