Through God's devotion, no matter where we choose to go in life, He will always be there offering us true freedom and never-ending love.

“The Gardner: The Tale of Toby the Tumbleweed” (published by WestBow Press) is a story author William West originally wrote for his children’s ministry as a life lesson, acting as a parable to teach young Christians about God’s devotion and love. “I wanted to help teach the children in a way that was easier to understand,” he explains.

West tells the story of Toby the tumbleweed, who believes he is the master of his own freedom, discovering his direction in life is dictated by the wind. The Gardener, who represents the Lord Jesus Christ, offers Toby true freedom in the safety of the garden.

Readers will find that through Toby’s careless life choices, he often becomes stuck. Unable to understand, Toby relies on the Gardner to free him from the captivity created by his life choices. Even though Toby declines his offer, he knows the Gardener will always be with him no matter where he goes.

“Through God's devotion, no matter where we choose to go in life, He will always be there offering us true freedom and never-ending love.”
