What do watermelon, seed catalogs, petunias, green beans, zinnias, and dandelions have in common? The ability to teach life lessons in a way you never would have imagined, that’s what! “Jesus and Zinnias Make Me Smile” is a collection of memories from gardens past, the people whose love, generosity, and mentoring inspired me to put my God-given green thumbs in the dirt, and the life lessons God saw fit to teach me in the midst of his creative genius. Smiling, laughing, sighing, and crying–you will experience them all as you get to know yourself and God better.
Do you feel lost and isolated, as though you don’t matter?
Do you feel tired and stressed, in need of replenishment and refreshment?
Do you want to find out more about the One who loves you more deeply, and knows you more thoroughly, than you could ever imagine?
Do you want to find out practical ways to grow your faith and walk more closely with Jesus?
Then this devotional style book is for you!
Meredith wrote this book during a season of isolation, exhaustion and worry, where she leaned in especially close to the Lord Jesus. Covered with prayer and Scripture, Meredith visualised meeting Jesus in a beautiful garden that she came to know as the Garden of Promise – so named for the promises of goodness and grace found liberally throughout the Scriptures. This book is the record of His words of healing and encouragement – an unforgettable and inspiring journey, where Jesus spoke new life into Meredith’s being. Her feelings of isolation lifted and she felt herself soothed, replenished and deeply loved by spending this time with Him.
You, dear reader, are invited to go on this journey through the pages of this book as you hear His voice and meet the Lord Jesus in the Garden of Promise.
