Writing is a ministry not a money-maker. At first, I didn’t understand that notion when my husband Bruce said it to me. After several years of writing and marketing books, I understand that writing non-fiction, Christian books is not about making money, but about being a witness for Christ. I am so grateful that Christ called me to be a witness for Him.
As a Master Gardener and Tree Steward, I love plants including flowers, vines, trees, grains, herbs, etc. So I spend a lot of time writing about them. Both my first (Rooted in God, Interpreting Plants in Bible Lore) and third books (God as a Gardener, Exploring Plants in Bible Parables) are about plants. My church, St. John Lutheran, has allowed Bruce and me to create a Bible garden on the property. Last year, the church was awarded the 2015 Bible Garden of the Year award from the Biblical Botanical Garden Society-USA.
God created the plants and called them good; God created individuals and called them good.
