Planting Seeds for Eternity

I’m thrilled to be guest posting over at The Better Mom website today. If you haven’t checked out their website and blog before, you’re in for a treat. They cover everything from parenting, marriage, mom time, and recipes all with a Christian tone and message.


Here’s a teaser of my post for them, Planting Seed for Eternity.

Spring time at our house means dragging out the rototiller and seed packets. I grew up planting the vegetable garden with my parents and automatically carried this into my own home and marriage. But once my children were born, I realized how special growing a garden is.

As they get older, I make the hole for the seed and they drop it in. We gently cover the seed together, their smaller hands patting the earth beside mine.
