Does life really have to be so complicated?

In Secrets from the Garden, Peggy Boyd takes you beyond all the insanity of this world to a place where life-altering wisdom is revealed in all its simplicity -- the garden.

For those patient enough to listen to its many secrets, the garden unlocks the mysteries of life. It is a sacred haven where the Creator meets us face to face and lovingly teaches us how to live life more abundantly -- how to live life more authentically -- more on purpose.”

Secrets from the Garden is not really a “how-to” book. At least it is not a book about how to grow a better garden, although you will discover many gardening tips along the way. It’s about how to live a better life. Sprinkled with experiences from her own gardening adventures, Boyd invites you to sit back, relax and listen to the beans, corn, and tomatoes share their wisdom -- wisdom as simple as it is profound.

In her comfortable, contemplative, yet light-hearted style, Boyd shares twenty life-changing secrets, such as:

- Honor your unique wiring

- Protect your dreams

- Dance beyond the breakers

- Put the past to rest

…and much more. The answers to all life’s questions can be found -- in the garden.

“This I know,” says author Boyd, “You will be amazed at the wisdom that can be gained from crawling around in the dirt.”
