In 2014 my soulmate, Amy, was diagnosed with cancer. It felt like a vine wrapped itself around our necks choking us. Scared and confused, our lives were like dry cracked earth. Operations, chemotherapy, and doctors appointments flooded our lives. Cancer served as a pest destroying our garden.
One day, with the sunrise visiting through the kitchen window, I walked to the window, looked down upon the dry cracked soil, called for Amy and our two daughters Karis and Lily, pointed down at that patch of earth, and said, “Let’s cultivate a garden there. Each morning we wake up and look out of this window the garden will remind us that we’ve chosen to focus on growth.” After two days we planted a garden.
As we tended the garden, I noticed the garden teaches many great lessons about life. The more I learned about these lessons the more I wanted to share them with you. Not all of my writings and teachings are directly related to the garden but The garden is at the root of all of my writings and teachings.
This blog and website is designed to publish teachings and writings about growth. For the life of our work we choose to cultivate your growth and ours by this motto: GROW THYSELF to KNOW THYSELF.
