“Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully,” 2 Corinthians 9:6. As you read this passage, look at it as the prelude to Plant Whatever Brings You Joy: Blessed Wisdom From the Garden by Kathryn Hall. Kathryn will take you on a journey with her by providing fifty-two beautiful stories about how the seeds that she has planted, or those that were planted in her life, set her on a pathway to growth and discovery. “Plant whatever gives you joy. Resist the temptation to plant more than you can care for.” Instead of going wide, go down by “deeply tilling the hardened ground,” says Kathryn. In Plant Whatever Brings You Joy: Blessed Wisdom From the Garden by Kathryn Hall we are reminded that all that we are and everything we do are the results of planted and watered seeds.
I enjoyed the essence of Plant Whatever Brings You Joy because Kathryn reminded me that our seeds are also connected to karma. Kathryn tells stories about going to Chicago as a teacher in an urban neighborhood, fresh out of college, and the effects of not having her father close to her and protecting her as she grew up, to her transition to moving and embracing gardening once her child went away to college. These were all of the seeds that positioned her to not only the life that she is now living, but to authoring Plant Whatever Brings You Joy: Blessed Wisdom From the Garden. If you want some inspiration on the seeds you are planting, pick up Plant Whatever Brings You Joy: Blessed Wisdom From the Garden by Kathryn Hall.
