I have been encouraged by Lara Casey for atleast the past decade. I have followed her journey through social media, I’ve attended her conferences, read her books, and listened to her podcast. She loves Jesus and loves telling others about Him. So you can imagine how excited I was that she completed her children’s book, Gracie’s Garden!
I signed up to be part of her launch team which allowed me to have early access to this sweet book. Gracie’s Garden is all about God’s miracles in the tiny seeds that only He can create and His power as He gives each seed everything it needs to grow just as He planned.
I invited our daughter, Kerrington, to sit down and read it with me. She was instantly in love! She loved the picture of Gracie, Sarah, and Josh in their garden that they created themselves with painted pebbles and stones, a stump and fun animal friends!
As soon as we finished reading she requested to read it again!
Then she was ready to head out side and create her own “Gracie’s Garden!”
She explored and played for hours after we got done reading, and had new ideas and inspiration for her own garden. She even picked a tomato off our plant, dug out a seed and planted it. Then she lined rocks from our driveway around it, just like Gracie did!
We planted our first garden during quarantine for Covid a few months ago, and it has been so fun watching our carrots grow, pretty flowers, and watching our baby tomatoes turn from flowers to green buds to yummy red goodness! We love grape tomatoes just like Gracie’s brother Josh!
What was even more fun was showing Kerrington that these sweet kids are real kids just like her! She thought that was so cool that they are in a book with pictures that look just like them!
We are so excited to get our new Gracie’s Garden book in the mail once it release in TWO short days!
You can get your copy everywhere books are sold!
In Him, Tamara
