“Nurturing the Mustard Seed”: a touching narrative that shows a great loss of a mother after God took away her good and loving son. “Nurturing the Mustard Seed” is the creation of published author Catherine Garrett, a very devout woman of faith who enjoys her church life and friends and has only God to thank for the blessings in her life.

Garrett writes, “Nurturing the Mustard Seed is a mother’s journey through her son’s life struggles. He had shown us that not only was his Mustard Seed flourishing, but it was a beautiful thriving tree. He was an honest and compassionate mentor to his peers and continued daily prayers to ask for God’s help. His courage and faith stood strong as he fought for his life and was gently led to Christ. Chris declared Jesus as his Lord and Savior just months before he was called to heaven. Although he took his life, I truly believe that God will continue to use him for good works into eternal life.

“The loss of a child will drop you to your knees. It is something that you can never prepare yourself for. You question everything in your life. I questioned myself. Was there something that I could have done differently? I questioned God. Why would you take my son, instead of helping him? Only God knows the answers to these questions. In walking through the journey of grief, I have prayed every day for strength. I love and miss Chris more than can be imagined.

“I believe that anyone dealing with addictions, mental illness, or thoughts of suicide will be encouraged by this book. With proper education, we can recognize the signs and help those in need. Don’t ever be afraid to trust your gut, to reach out, and talk to someone who may be struggling.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Catherine Garrett’s new book is a moving account that reminds readers to treasure every moment they have with their children for no one knows when the last time will be that a mother can see her loving son.

It is a poignant narrative of grief and hope that will touch the hearts of readers enabling them to know that they are not alone amid the darkness in life. Inspiring empathy to help those in need, Garret encourages readers to lean on God for strength and become a beacon of light for those around them.
