Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite “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.

This garden book doesn't seem to be big, just 228 pages. But if you read it, impression is changing - the book grows much, much bigger. "Blessed wisdom from the garden" becomes heartwarming book of treasure. Cover design fits perfectly the nature of the 52 short stories embracing the garden and life, written in unique style. When I read a book or Kathryn's blog I am always astonished with her easy, natural and skillful writing style. I bet, that use of words will also surprise you! When I read it, I wanted to enjoy every page, every story as long as possible, because I had a feeling that a close friend is sharing life wisdom and whispering life affirmations to my ear. This garden book is not only filled with entertaining backyard stories, it brings also intense spiritual beauty - these stories teach and nourish soul and spirit.
