"I would maintain that thanks are the highest

form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness

doubled by wonder."

~G.K. Chesterton

Hi there. My name is Vicki Finley. I'm a wife to one awesome man for 34 years, the mom to our four grown married children, and the grammie of eight delightful grandkids—and counting.


I never thought I would write a book. But then my husband brought something home: a dog. What happened next both shocked and surprised me. Dominique Decoco was the canine manifestation of my own inner spiritual life and it was a mess. Being an avid Dog Whisperer fan, I sought to rehabilitate this dog according to Cesar's way. As I did, I found that I needed some rehabilitating of my own. In the end she and I both learned to trust and follow our masters with calm submission. 


My book tells the story about how God gave me what I needed in life instead of what I wanted. I learned to receive the uncontrollable circumstances as filtered through His sovereign loving hands, to trust Him for His purposes, and to give Him the thanks He deserved. I hope you enjoy reading and find something that helps you to trust and follow the Master who loves you too. 


Please visit my blog for more thoughts and musings about walking right here next the Master's side.
