Show Notes

Here are just a few HEART TAPS from this amazing episode with author RACHEL DODGE:

  1. Creating a rhythm for quality time, helps us to stay connected 
  2. When you say no to something, you are actually giving someone else the opportunity to say yes to it!
  3. Never say “never”…because so many times…that then becomes the thing that you focus on…and then it happens! 
  4. Just do the next thing…then you’ll get the next set of instructions.
  5. Our companions are being gather for us. But who is being gathered around us…isn’t always what we are looking for or that we think we need..but they are exactly what we need! 
  6. Sometimes hard is good. 
  7. We all need room to grow, but we also need to give those around us the same room to grow
  8. Losing your way is a part of finding your way.

RACHEL DODGE is the bestselling author of The Secret Garden Devotional  which offers lovely inspiration that explores the themes of faith, family, contentment, wisdom, and joy in my great-great grandmother Frances H. Burnett’s novel, cherished by generations of readers.

Each reading corresponds with a chapter from the book and includes examples from the novel, scripture, life application, and prayers perfect for groups, book clubs, or personal reflection.

Want to know what I thought about her book? I cried…it is so beautiful!

"With the skill of a master gardener and the gentle hand of a friend, Rachel guides us through Mary's path and garden to show us the seeds of wisdom and wonder that have been planted there all along. She then sows these truths deep into our hearts with a special blend of biblical knowledge, purposeful prayer, and real-life application."
