About the Author:

Eldon Toews was born in Glasgow, Montana in 1951 and grew up on his family's farm and ranch operation north of Frazer. He began to help with cattle work and breaking horses at a young age. By age thirteen, he was doing day work for neighbors; at seventeen he went to work at the Ortman Ranch and later the Halverson ranch. Eldon attended Montana State University in Bozeman, during which he spent the summers working on the Taylor Horse Ranch north of Fergus, Montana. In 1973, he graduated with a BS in animal science, after which he spent a year working on ranches in Bolivia, South America. He returned to work on the Reno Creek Ranch and later Brooks Ranch near Crow Agency, Montana. In 1976, Eldon married his childhood sweetheart, Carol Funk; they began to work on a ranch in Washington State, during which they spent some months in Israel, working on a cattle ranch on the Golan Heights. They returned to Montana in 1984 and helped on ranches near Busby and managed a ranch north of Red Lodge, Montana. They now live near Miles City, Montana, where Eldon helped on ranches while pastoring Living Way Fellowship church. They live on a small ranch east of Miles City. These meditations were originally published in a weekly pastor's column in the Miles City Star.
