The Master Gardener is a lively, modern-day parable about a surprise visitor who shows up within the high and impenetrable walls of a lonely gardener whose life is plagued with fear and loneliness. Through a series of teachable-moments that the visitor uses as opportunities of instruction, the gardener finds that what is happening within his struggling garden is but a reflection of his tumultuous emotions. The surprise visitor patiently and kindly shows the gardener how to deal with the troubling issues of life while also teaching him how to perfectly care for his natural garden. The Master Gardener offers the humor and whimsy of an allegory, the insight of ageless wisdom, and the vivid symbolism of Christ's love for us and His desire to be involved in every aspect of our lives. Laura Dahne and her husband Jim reside in South Florida where they enjoy doing ministry together. Laura's passions are her family, photography and teaching on the magnificence of God. It has been said that she uses her pen to paint beautiful word masterpieces, much like an artist uses a brush. In addition to this work she has written several devotionals and currently authors a newsletter entitled, "The She Papers...The Passionate Ramblings of a Woman Crazy for God." Laura knows first-hand the desperate need for inner healing and how our lives become transformed when Jesus is invited into our hurts and hearts. Laura does inspirational speaking engagements out of a sincere desire to see God's women get set free and be wholly healed by a Holy God. Laura is currently 'mulling over' her next book, Broken Winged Eagles, a book on helping those who grieve. She can be contacted at TheShePapers@aol.com.
