Saddles in Service

Saddles In Service at Storm Son’s Ranch is a Veteran founded non-profit promoting wellness and healing for our Heroes and Horses at absolutely no cost to participants!

The Saddles In Service program offers Active Duty Military, Veterans, Firefighters, Law Enforcement Officers, and First Responders the unique opportunity to explore their own healing alongside a rescue horse. Many men and women experience different stressors throughout their service to our Nation and communities. It is our goal to assist Heroes in their process of working through these stressors. According to a study conducted by Baylor University, Equine Therapy has proven to lessen depression, anxiety, and isolation in combat-Veterans.

Through the Saddles In Service program our Heroes and Horses learn to trust one another through care, groundwork, and riding. We challenge our Heroes to be vulnerable and reach deep inside themselves, to face their fears and doubts. It is our hope that our Heroes will be able to discover new strengths in their healing process.

Our program is absolutely free to our Heroes and their families. Our program is tailored to fit the specific physical and emotional needs of each Hero we serve. We carefully pair Hero and Horse and assist the pair in building their relationship through grooming, groundwork, and riding. Horses can sense human emotion and react based on those emotions. While working with their horses, our Heroes learn the importance of being aware and begin to work on controlling their emotions. Throughout the program, Heroes will regain confidence, learn patience, and rediscover themselves.

The Bible Project

The Bible Project

The Bible Project is a non-profit animation studio that produces short-form, fully animated videos to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere. We create 100% free videos, podcasts, and resources that explore the Bible’s unified story.

The Bible is a divine-human book that speaks God’s word to his people. We believe it ultimately points us to Jesus, who has the power to change individuals and whole communities when we let the biblical story speak for itself.

Sadly, for so many, the Bible is used as a devotional grab bag or an instruction manual that fell out of the sky. Worse, for many more, it is an oppressive book of out-dated rules used to control people.

We simply desire to help others understand the scriptures and all their complex themes in a way that is engaging, approachable, and transformative. We are committed followers of Jesus, but are not organizationally a part of any specific Christian denomination or tradition. We hope that people from all backgrounds will find value in this work, regardless of their religious or non-religious convictions.

Open Doors

Open Doors

For over 60 years, Open Doors has worked in the world’s most oppressive countries, empowering Christians who are persecuted for their beliefs. Open Doors equips persecuted Christians in more than 60 countries through programs like Bible & Gospel Development, Women & Children Advancement and Christian Community Restoration.

Christian persecution is any hostility experienced from the world as a result of one’s identification as a Christian. Beatings, physical torture, confinement, isolation, rape, severe punishment, imprisonment, slavery, discrimination in education and employment, and even death are just a few examples of the persecution they experience on a daily basis.

According to The Pew Research Center, over 75% of the world’s population lives in areas with severe religious restrictions (and many of these people are Christians). Also, according to the United States Department of State, Christians in more than 60 countries face persecution from their governments or surrounding neighbors simply because of their belief in Jesus Christ.
