"Craig Davis Family enjoying Agape ProgramMy Family was shocked with the sudden and unexpected loss of my wife and mother of my children. The Agape program was absolutely priceless for myself and my children. Once my children knew horses were involved there was no turning back.

All three of my children ages 11, 10 and 7 were all born in Houston, Texas. Yet, we would all be defined as “city slickers or at the least suburban slickers”. The oldest requested Texas ranch style horse riding birthday parties for at least three in a row. All my children love horses. I know the loss of my wife and the loss of the kid’s mommy made us feel helpless and that we are in control of nothing.

This program empowers the kids to understand the importance of communication, caring for one another, and gain a new appreciation for our new family unit. The group simply illustrates how sharing our feelings and thoughts with each other every day is so much part of the process.

Watching my children jump right in and lean to lead a 1700 lbs. horse, learn to groom and care for a horse as a team was awesome. These task skills were then related to the family loss and how to make our needs known to each other. It was a very concrete message and tangible event for the kids and myself in a time that makes no sense at all. Aiden (11) loves telling about how he learned to harness the horses and lead the horses from their stalls for grooming. He especially enjoyed leading the horses on simple walks and complex obstacles. Avery (9) shares that her favorite part was brushing the horses’ long manes because it helped to get dirt off the pretty horses. Landen (7) shares that he liked learning about the grooming tools and being able to touch the horses and use big circle movements to comb the horse’s body. Memories and healing made possible through the people and amazing horses at Agape."

"Thank you for all of your help thus far.  (Child) really enjoyed his time there.  He got in the car and the first words were, “Did you know that every kid in my group had their dad die?”  To most that would seem like a horrible thing to say but in our car it was music to our ears.  He was comforted to know that he was not the only kid living this ride on the crazy train… We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Brooke’s Place… Thank you again for everything.  (Child) loved the folks working his group!"
