I’m celebrating my birthday this weekend and I have a gift for you!
And that’s the story behind Sarah’s Garden.
A parable that tells of the struggle in each of us to flourish in our strengths, rather than repeatedly struggling in our weaknesses. It’s a journey for parents and children who are doing the best they can … and realize they can’t do it alone. They need help.
And really … don’t we all!!!
Here’s a snippet…
On the day Princess Sarah was born, a shout went out across the land that started a joyful celebration.
The festivities began with the selection of Sarah’s guardians—parents. There were the people who were chosen by the King Himself to love and care for Sarah as she grew up. This decision was extremely important and the King always made it using His perfect wisdom.
The next part of the celebration was very special and mysterious. It was the planting of Sarah’s garden—a garden started from a special mixture of seeds chosen just for her. No one else had a garden exactly like Sarah’s.
Sarah’s garden was her special place—a beautiful display of flowers selected to represent the true loveliness of Sarah’s spirit and remind her that she was extraordinarily precious to the King.
Of course, every story must have a villain.
The villain in this kingdom was an evil ogre who hated the King.
The ogre wanted to destroy everything that was precious to the King of Forever and Ever, and he knew that the King treasured His children. So the Ogre made it his purpose to hurt the Kings’ children by using the nasties and “trashy” villagers to destroy their special gardens.
You’ll want to keep reading to…
Find out who the King sent to help Sarah after the ogre, the nasties, and the “trashy” villagers made a mess of her garden. And you’ll celebrate with Sarah as she learns of her true identity and the fabulous future that awaits her.
You’ll be able to relate to the story of Sarah’s Garden if…
You’ve ever felt overwhelmed with the responsibility of caring for your child’s garden.
You’ve felt anxious as she transitions to caring for that precious garden herself.
You find yourself frustrated trying to take care of the mess in your own garden.
My friend, there is hope!
And that is the message of Sarah’s garden. There is always hope because we know the One who is able to restore our gardens to beautiful perfection.
I loved writing this story
and would love to give away hundreds of copies this weekend.
Get one for yourself. Tell your friends and family.
Share it on Social Media.
After Monday – it will go back to its usual price.
One more thing…
The beautiful illustrations in Sarah’s Garden were created by my friend, Rebecca Mueller when she was only 12 years old.
So, I love sharing this book with budding artists to encourage them to keep drawing … to use the artistic seeds in their gardens for the glory of the One who made them and loves them more than they can ever imagine.
