The Story Behind the Song #4: We're Not Just Growing Gardens

This song was inspired by my friend Brenda whom God often uses as a conduit to share His wisdom.  I like to collect quotes and while the words of this song are not direct quotes from her, they do contain many of the ideas contained therein.  Here are some of my favorites that I’ve heard her say.  

“We’re not just building a house, we’re building men.” 

“Homeschooling isn’t so much about what we expose our children to as what we don’t expose our children to.” 

“Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out.” 

“Do you want it now or do you want it best?” 

“When I talk I feel powerful.  When I listen, I am powerful.” 

“You will either grow a garden or grow the gardener.” 

“Children will build the boat they are going to float in from whatever they find around them.” 

“It isn’t so much consensus that we need, but grace.” 

We’ve now been meeting with Brenda and her family for fellowship in our homes for almost four years and feel as though we’ve grown spiritually by leaps and bounds as a result.  We meet with a small group that makes use of the resources  found on the website SimpleChurchAtHome.com.  I’m putting in this plug based on our own experience.  I highly recommend it for those who consider themselves truth-seekers and are serious about growing in their faith.
