The Garden In My Heart is a children's book about sowing and reaping that encourages children to sow good things in their heart. We all have a garden that can produce flowers of joy or weeds of jealousy and bitterness.
"There is a secret garden inside every girl and boy, and there are special seeds to sow that will grow into joy."
This is a simple book with a deep message that has the potential to be a powerful parenting (or teaching) tool. What greater lesson can we pass on to our children (or students) than the fact that we will reap what we sow? With gentle pictures and simple rhyme, Rogers writes about the value of thankfulness, patience, friendship, and more. She addresses the need to tend to the garden in our hearts: to pull the weeds of bitterness or jealousy -- and to plant good seeds and get good fruit.

Rainbow Moments is a sweet children's book about hearing God's voice everyday.
God made a rainbow to remind Noah of His promises and He gives us special reminders too! This special book encourages the reader to recognize when God is speaking—reminding us of His great love and many wonderful promises.
“If you take time to stop and listen, look and you will see, the precious rainbow moments that God sends for you and me.”
Rainbow Moments is all about looking for those little moments where God's love and mercy are shown. Those moments that are so easy to overlook. I can easily see this book as a jumping-off point for conversations on finding those moments and where we can see God's promises in our lives. This is a well-written, engaging book with beautiful illustrations. It's such a great reminder of His love for kids and for grown-ups! I absolutely adore this little book!
“The wool grew so thick it soon covered his eyes. It looked like he was wearing some strange disguise!”
Wilbur The Woolly is an entertaining parable about trusting the good shepherd. As Wilbur avoids getting shorn and tries to do things his own way, he ends up finding himself in some sticky situations. Follow Wilbur the sheep on his journey as he discovers that getting his own way isn't always best and the shepherd does love him after all.
While seemingly a Christian parable, there is nothing in this book to keep the story from being a non-religious book about love and natural cycles and life’s seasons, like growing up! It is a straightforward story with a bit of whimsy and a little bit of humor (starting with the cover art!), and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
