    I took a chance on this book as an audiobook because Audible included it in their Black Friday sale And then I actually tracked down the Audible return process to give it back The main problem was that I was listening to it while concurrently reading Hannah Anderson s Humble Roots Both books come from a supposedly Christian

    Cultivate is such a beautiful book Lara is incredibly real and hopeful in her story that she weaves throughout her gardening metaphors This timely book is about going against the culture that is normal and taking the time to really tend to things that matter Gardens don t happen over night and she reminds us that a life worth living doesn t either It takes time, energy, persistence, water, sun,
