I want Christians to realize some things we often do or say does make a difference in how others can be won to Christ or even be strengthened by our display of obedience,
Maitland, FL (PRWEB) January 13, 2012
Sewing a garden is much like sewing the Word of God into daily life. Each requires patience, nourishment, love and attention. As Jesus used parables to tell stories containing spiritual lessons, Sarah Long Quillen compares gardening to spiritual growth in her new book, Listening to God ($14.99, paperback 978-1-61904-767-9; $22.99, hardcover, 978-1-61904-768-6; $7.49, eBook, 978-1-61904-769-3). This book will help individual and group readers grow spiritually and become stronger Christians while learning to listen to God.
Gardening, like any enjoyable hobby, may seem to most a simple life pleasure that allows a person to relax and take pleasure in the elements, but much like a person’s spiritual walk with the Lord, it requires time, energy and self-motivation to produce a fruitful harvest. Quillen helps her readers sew the seeds of God’s Word into each and every day.
“I want Christians to realize some things we often do or say does make a difference in how others can be won to Christ or even be strengthened by our display of obedience,” states Quillen. “I was inspired by God to write this book. Every year I put out a garden and I learned something new. Lessons in the garden often were about gardening, but they were also about life. After a few years of trial and error, I realized God was speaking to me through gardening.”
