Summary

Summary

This book is about what it means to be a soul gardener. Reading it is not unlike walking in a garden--where it feels good to be alive, where we sit for a while and talk about what we learn there-which allows us to be more fully human.

Terry Hershey recounts experiences from his own life, using the metaphor of gardening to speak to our longing for spiritual growth, a healthy lifestyle, and a more centered life. Enriched by Bible quotations and spiritual classics, his stories will lead you to new insights into the kind of life the Creator intends for us. The soul gardening exercises will lead you to your own experiences of the wonder and beauty of daily life.

Soul Gardening will not make you a gardener. But it will nurture your soul, teach you how to live, and renew your sense of what it means to live the good life. It is about appreciating the ordinary gifts of grace, the value of solitude, the art of listening and the healing power of nature. Finding the balance between loving and losing, creating a sane lifestyle, being fully awake and alive and the value of slowing down the gift of seeing God's world with new eyes.
