Into The Garden
Thank you for your interest in my first book. This has been an amazing faith journey as well as a steep learning curve, in writing, editing, publishing, and marketing.
What I have learned is that reviews are very important to the success of a book. Amazon publishes over 500 books every day and most people choose according to the reviews they read.
I would be grateful for your honest review on Amazon when you are finished; it only takes a few minutes of your time and will help to share the word of God for those who are searching for deeper meaning in their lives.
Also, if you like my book it would be helpful for you to post it on your favorite website or social media page. I am on a limited budget for marketing (publicists charge $6,000-10,000) so your reviews and posts are crucial to the success of my book.
Peace and Blessings
Into The Garden has quickly become one of my favorite go-to books for meditation and inspiration. Cathy’s down to earth, easy to read and very authentic stories with beautiful scriptural references woven in at just the right points has been both inspiring and soothing, particularly at this point in time. This is a book that I’ll reread many times and give copies to friends as a gift. Truly a beautiful and uplifting book.
The author shares her life experiences (both good and bad) and chronicles her spiritual journey as she navigates through these experiences. She uses her love of nature and gardening as metaphors of lessons learned along her journey. I especially enjoyed the use of scripture used throughout the book to accentuate God’s word and presence in all situations.
Great book where the chapters are just a couple of pages. Many insightful metaphors, analogies, visualizations using the scriptures. I am a devout Christian and have found a lot of wisdom in Cathy’s words. If you love the Bible you will love her insights. If you need live application of scriptures in your life, you will have a good dose of it in this book. There are lots of clever passages to clarify spiritual knowledge. One can use it as a devotional book for inspiration and meditation on a daily basis. I highly recommend it!
I love this book! I thought I would breeze through it and put it on my shelf. Instead, I found myself drawn in a personal way, and wanted to take it all in! Cathy writes from her heart, experience, faith, and knowledge and it’s all relatable. I am a gardener, too, and especially like how she includes nature to tell the story. This book is a refreshing surprise!

“Are there times when you need a companion to walk alongside you on life’s journey? Then just pick up “Into the Garden” for insight and wisdom with solid Scriptural and theological foundation.”
Cathy invites the reader along on multiple visits to her garden where she tends to both her budding flowers and spiritual life. Experienced in both, she seamlessly weaves themes from nature, questions of life, and spiritual truths in the forms of short journal entries and devotions. Even when confronting challenging questions, Cathy gently leads herself and the reader to the comfort of a reciprocal relationship with a loving God.
