Episode 40: The Gardener

Have you ever had a garden before? If you have, you know how much work it takes to keep it alive and growing. Well Jesus tells us a story, or a parable, about a garden that lives in our hearts. I am serious, miniBFFs! There is a story in the bible about Jesus being the vine and we are the branches. Do you know who the gardener is? God! That’s right! This episode dives more into the topic of tending to the garden that lives inside of us and why it is important to take care of it. Scripture: John 15:1-8 We’d love to have you draw a picture of a flower or something you have grown in your garden or want to grow! We can’t wait to see what you create.
