GRAB A CUP OF COFFEE OR TEA WHILE YOU READ A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE NOVEL GARDEN COMMUNITY.

love from the garden

AS AN AUTHOR AND FORMER TEACHER, I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD COULD CHANGE THE COURSE OF A LIFE AND BRING HOPE. THROUGHOUT SCRIPTURE WE SEE THAT JESUS OFTEN TOLD STORIES (PARABLES) TO COMMUNICATE DEEP TRUTHS OF GOD'S LOVE. 

THE DREAM AND CONCEPT FOR THE NOVEL GARDEN BEGAN WHEN I BECAME PRIMARILY BEDRIDDEN DUE MY FIGHT WITH ADVANCED LATE STAGE LYME DISEASE IN 2012. DURING THIS SEASON AND THROUGHOUT THE PAST FIVE YEARS WITH TREATMENT I HAVE READ HUNDREDS OF BOOKS AND FOUND SUCH ENCOURAGEMENT, INSPIRATION, AND HOPE. I DESIRED TO HELP SPREAD THAT HOPE THROUGHOUT MT COMMUNITY. I OFTEN SEND BOOKS TO FRIENDS FOR ENCOURAGEMENT AND DREAMED OF THE IDEA OF INSPIRING OTHERS BEYOND JUST MY FRIENDS AND PERSONAL TRIBE WHILE GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY. 

INSPIRED BY BEAUTY, TRAVEL, AND FRENCH SHABBY CHIC MARKETS, I STARTED PLANNING THE CONCEPT OF THE NOVEL GARDEN IN 2016. DESIGNING AND OFFERING THREE DIFFERENT CRATE OPTIONS, I AM EXCITED TO SEE THE WAY THAT THE NOVEL GARDEN WILL TOUCH AND INSPIRE YOUR LIFE. AFTER RESEARCHING SPECIFIC WAYS THAT THIS CRATE SUBSCRIPTION COULD GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, TWO DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF GIVING BACK EMERGED: 

(1) TO DONATE 10% OF ALL SUBSCRIPTION PROFITS TO HELP PROVIDE BIBLES TO THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE TO ONE AND

(2) TO DONATE THE BOOK CONTENTS OF THE SUBSCRIPTION BOXES TO LITTLE FREE LIBRARIES, INTENTIONALLY GIVING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE INTRODUCED TO GOD'S LOVE THROUGH THESE BOOKS.

OUR SUBSCRIPTION BOXES ARE BROUGHT TOGETHER AND PACKAGED WITH LOVE AND PRAYER AND WITH EVERY PURCHASE OUR COMMUNITY GROWS. WE LOOK FORWARD TO CONNECTING WITH YOU AND HAVING YOU JOIN OUR COMMUNITY! 

with love, rebecca
