by Jane G. Meyer, Illustrated by Masha Lobastov
Within every heart is a hidden garden. We can neglect it until the weeds take over and the flowers wither and die. Or, with the help of Christ, we can care for it and make it a place of beauty, grace, and joy.
This charming parable will encourage children (and adults) to open the gate to Christ and tend the garden of their heart with loving care.
About the Author: Jane G. Meyer is a children's book author and editor who lives in Santa Barbara, California, with her husband and children. She loves the outdoors, learning new languages, fiddling in her garden, and making things with her hands. Besides her editorial work for Ancient Faith Publishing, she is the author of several books for children.
About the illustrator: Masha Lobastov is an award-winning artist who is classically educated and trained in Russia and the U.S. She graduated with honors from the prestigious Russian State Humanitarian University, which gave her profound knowledge of art, history, and culture. Masha mainly focuses on figurative art and portraiture, contemplating and uncovering internal beauty within every human element. Working with oils on colored canvases, she creates the "window" within a painting, similar to what we see in a fogged mirror: a path that leads the eye into someone else’s world: pure and unspoiled, sometimes emotional or complex, with crystal clear colors and details.
