From the Savior’s parable of the seed and the sower to Jacob’s allegory of the olive tree, Latter-day Saints have a wealth of scriptural connections to nature and even to gardening.
In Finding God in the Garden, authors Brent and Wendy Top relate the lessons they’ve learned both about growing plants and about growing in the gospel from the vegetable and flower gardens they’ve kept since they were newlywed apartment-dwellers.
Whether it’s the figurative pruning we receive from the Master Gardener or such advice as “don’t spray Roundup on your tomatoes,” the authors show us with wit and wisdom how well the worlds of gardening and gospel living intertwine.
Filled with color photographs, many from the authors’ own gardens, Finding God in the Garden is a beautiful addition to the library of both the amateur and the master gardener — and of the earnest gospel seeker.
