My passion....Fuels My Purpose
Horses have been a saving grace for me since I was a child, and through the many trials I have endured in life. I began teaching in 2003. I began my career in kindergarten--and have since taught various grades in between. I obtained my Master's Degree in Education and have taught high school science classes for several years. I currently teach Middle School in Westbrook, MN. I also advise an FFA (Future Farmers of America) team and an FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) group.
Many years ago, a dear friend sent me a book when I was going through a very traumatic time in my life...HOPE RISING By Kim Meeder. The seed of using horses along with the love of Christ was birthed in my heart. I attended Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch several years later, in 2017--to develop the rooted foundation of a similar ministry. As my life continued to journey forward, I continued to seek God's guidance to develop the ranch HE had sparked in my heart. As the details came together building the ranch-- I found Unbridled Faith and Elaine Davis. I attended Faith Based Equine Assisted Philosophy Certification to utilize the power of the Holy Spirit --The WORD--and the HERD--to secure the foundation God has now set ablaze in my heart to share HIS love and the healing power of horses and nature. I praise God for the love of nature He has instilled in my heart and the gift of horses He has blessed me with to share with others. ---Nancy Zollner--
