Four Paws from Heaven

Devotions for Dog Lovers

M.R. Wells & Kris Young & Connie Fleishauer

With over 100,000 copies sold, Four Paws from Heaven is a surefire hit! Now with a fun new cover, three talented writers and dog masters share wisdom gleaned while walking through life alongside four paws. Through dog tales and human stories, this pack of short, enjoyable devotions focuses on spiritual lessons, including:

  • who we are on the inside matters
  • rebellion blocks blessings
  • boundaries are for our own good
  • using our talents glorifies God
  • if we always bark, we won’t hear instructions

Pet lovers will find encouragement and guidance for their own life through invitations to reflect on the love, companionship, and insight dogs give to those who love them.

A Word from the Author

Four Paws from Heaven is a celebration of the wonder and wisdom of our Creator. I am awed at how God layers pictures of His truths throughout His creation. My dogs are one way the Lord speaks to my heart to reveal new truths and remind me of old truths in exciting new ways. I pray our stories will touch our readers and show them more of God’s love for them.”
M.R. Wells, co–author of Four Paws from Heaven

“If you have eyes to see and ears to hear, many of the answers to life’s greatest questions can be found in your own backyard. This book was inspired by watching and listening to my dog, Gracie, who simply, by being her natural God–created self,taught me great and unsearchable things I did not know.”
Kris Young, co–author of Four Paws from Heaven

“Our dogs are treasured gifts from our Creator. Having them in our lives is a wonderful resource for character. Through them we can learn about devotion, obedience, unconditional love, peace and a host of other wonderful qualities. If you love dogs, I’m sure you’ll enjoy our stories.”
Connie Fleishauer, co–author of Four Paws from Heaven

The Nashville News

“This devotional is full of humor, laughter and warmth as it invites the reader to understand how God uses animals to watch over us. I love this devotional and will use it as a pick-me-up.”

Reader Reviews

“This book has been such a gift to my soul. Pups are such a gift from the Lord to our lives. They kinda represent Jesus’ love for us...unconditional...Mrs. Wells has greatly been used to bring sweetness into the readers’ lives...I know this is a God wink into anyone’s life who reads it.”
Lauren T. Kitchens

“I have truly enjoyed each part of this book and how each moment (good or bad) can be something we learn from God to help us grow. Dealing with two adopted children and one with mental illness, I knew that God placed our dogs in our lives to help teach us compassion, unconditional love and mercy. I always call my dogs ‘my angels in fur,’ because no matter what, they are always there! Thanks again for the inspirational words from heaven.”
Sabrina Trickett

Endorsements

“I worked with M.R. Wells just after she left Disney, and have followed her writing career with great interest...You can’t beat Four Paws from Heaven or Purr–Ables From Heaven—the cute dogs and cats and the well chosen words make an unbeatable combination. Especially for those of us who love animals. God gave us animals as special, loving, compassionate companions during some of life’s tough times...and as happy, upbeat, cheerleaders during the great times—these two books capture the best of both worlds...At least that’s what my dogs Sparky and Duke tell me..”
Rob Loos, co–Founder & partner, TLC Entertainment

“I loved it! I greatly appreciate how each chapter cleverly connects the canine with the divine in brief yet personal vignettes. Almost every story brought back blessed memories of unconditional love from pets I’ve loved. I highly recommend this devotional book for anyone who has ever loved or been loved by ‘man’s best friend’.”
Joe L. Brown, Youth Pastor, Heritage Bible Church

“If you want an encouraging, unique read, I strongly suggest that you buy this book. It will be money well spent.”
Jeremy Reynalds, Special Correspondent for ASSIST News Service

“I loved Four Paws from Heaven. It brought back memories of my pets and the quirky things they did. I shed a few tears, laughed out loud, and kept a big smile on my face as I read each page. If you’ve ever owned a pet and gaining a more vivid picture of God entices you, then this book is a must read! From the first page you’ll be hooked. Wells, Young and Fleishauer filled this book with true canine stories with life changing take–aways. At least one, but probably many, of the lessons in this book will be relevant to any reader. The best part of Four Paws from Heaven is that it compares our beloved pet’s behavior with our own human behavior; the resulting ‘Aha’ moments inevitably draw us closer to God.”
