What a delight it was to read "Come to the Garden" by Jennifer Wilder Morgan! As I was a little skeptical about angels and dreams, this fictional (more memoir) book opened my eyes about the way God could work in our lives. Jennifer uses an angel named "Margaret' who helps Jennifer understand the dreams and tough events in her life that did not always make sense. As Margaret walks through the beautiful garden with Jennifer, she uses humor and butterflies to help Jennifer learn about how God works in our lives with "coincidences" and the lessons we learn through our walk with Him. This book is a delight with her descriptions of nature - the beautiful flowers, bluebirds, stars, and butterflies. I want to read this delightful book again with a cup of coffee in my backyard and slowly savor Jennifer's words. Enjoy!
Through Bible study and prayer we can search for our path...this book gives a whimsical but Devine way to understand Gods promptings and whispers through our dreams and the Holy Spirit. We are reading of an angel " that physically comes to the garden " and helps our main character understand the reality of Christs presence throughout her life. Loved this book and purchased several more to give as gifts! It's filled with wonderful life affirming scripture!
I loved this book from the beginning to the end. I haven't ever read a novel where I felt so at peace. I seen Jennifer Morgan promoting this book on Kathy Lee and Hoda morning show. It sounded really good and it is. I have a few questions I would like to ask Jennifer about this book that would help me grow in my faith. If you haven't read this novel yet and want a stronger relationship with t h your faith, I recommend reading this one. Just had me wanting more!
I've read the book three times. I highly recommend it. After buying the Echo, it was a pleasure to listen to the audiobook. Excellent written,with a good storyline.this book deserves more than 5 stars!!
Not only did I grasp the beauty of the story I will continually pass on copies to my friends. It would be a great book to share at the Church Book Club. Jennifer has an excellent way of communicating - she allows her inner beauty to come out.
Jennifer's story of faith and purpose is inspirational and written in a narrative that is refreshing and light. We shared a common childhood growing up in Northeast OH and I especially enjoyed the connection to community and family she experienced as a young adult. The lesson that I took away from the book is that many things happen in our lives for reasons unknown to us, but as we grow and mature, reflecting on these events, its clear that placing our faith in a higher power and having hope for the future is often the best explanation. Excellent read.
Excellent Book! Loved it! Great story! Loved the scripture in each chapter! I was so sad when I finished reading this amazing book. What a blessing this book was to me. I would encourage you to enjoy and share this book. 💗😊
