Gathering Goodness

Faith, Family, Friends & Horses

in Appleridge Book 1

Jennie McKenzie sells her horse, Mint Julep, and begins a new life as a college student in Chicago. Four years later, Jennie struggles with making a choice between her dream of living in the city or acknowledging the horse–shaped hole in her heart.


Two veterinarians conspire to find the truth about a horse reported dead under strange circumstances. Jennie’s Dear Equestrian letters, humorously written from horses to their owners, become a popular magazine feature. Her grandfather provides much–needed encouragement when Jennie finds herself in like with Jeremy James, a boy she teased in high school calling him the boy with two first names.


Join Jennie as she meets life’s challenges with determination and joy. Gathering Goodness is a story of friends, family, and being thankful for everything instead of allowing bad experiences to steal our joy—and faith.

There's a lot happening in Appleridge. Come for a little visit, grabbed a glass of ice tea, find a comfy chair on the front porch, and get cozy!

Trusting Truth

Faith, Family, Friends & Horses

Come meet Lainie Anderson who is looking for happiness in all the wrong places, but Lainie doesn’t know any right places. Follow Jennie McKenzie, a reporter for the Farm & Family Country Chronicle, as she uses her investigating skills to help friends, both old and new. Jennie’s grandpa enjoys reminiscing with an old friend, and conducting Appleridge business at the Bake and Shake, a local bakery. Could there possibly be a moose on the streets of Appleridge? Megan learns a lesson about being truthful, as her dad and local vet, Dr. Adrian Peterson, fights an addiction to cookies.

 The Annual Apple Festival parade draws a huge crowd, especially the friends from Jennie’s barn, and Marcy’s prancing ponies are the parade favorites. Jeremy James and Jennie, enjoy being in like—and maybe more. A community gathers in support of a new teacher, and an estranged mother and daughter learn about grace, friendship, and fighting for the truth.

There’s a lot happening in Appleridge. Come for a little visit, kick off your boots, grab a quilt, and get cozy!

Finding Fare

Faith, Family, Friends & Horses

in Appleridge Book 3

Meet a bay Morgan horse named My Fare Thee Well—a kind soul with soft brown eyes—as he brings a few changes to Appleridge, and, especially to Trina Shaw’s very private existence. Trina leans on her new friends—Jennie, Lainie, and Marcy—as she walks down a path of reconciliation and forgiveness. Meet Barton Shaw, Trina’s brother, a changed man carrying a heavy load, and her mom, Margaret, ever faithful in prayer.

With the support of her family and community, a young Amish widow honors her husband’s memory while raising three young children. When tragedy strikes, old and new friends from Appleridge arrive with a generous gift.

Jeremy James has a surprise of his own for Jennie McKenzie, and Jennie’s grandpa, Charlie Gantzler, never lets much grass grow under his feet. Local veterinarian, Dr. Adrian Peterson, shares a few touching words of wisdom with a young Amish boy. The Appleridge gang rallies around Cassy Morton and Megan Peterson when a domineering boyfriend threatens their friendship. 

Horsemanship instructor, Lainie Anderson, leads her performance team as they become an Appleridge entertainment favorite.
