100 years before the terms "organic", "local" and "sustainable" were in vogue, Mrs. Ellen G. White was urging her readers to return to the land. The industrial revolution was pulling people from their agrarian roots, and she foresaw the end results. Although the world was heralding a new age of progress, she was lamenting a turning away from the "old paths."
In this volume you will find counsels for parents, teachers and school administrators, gospel and healthcare workers, farmers, and anyone else who wants to come closer to God's ideal lifestyle.
Unlike many who preach one thing while practicing another, Mrs. White was a passionate gardener. Reading diary entries and letters about her own work in the garden will encourage and amaze you.
Although this counsel is dated, it is particularly relevant to those living in the 21st century as they navigate through the technological revolution. May the reader hear the call back to God's original garden plan.
The compiler has searched the author's original manuscripts and letters to find context and to discover previously unpublished "gems". As you read, you will be challenged, motivated and inspired to experience the mental, physical, and spiritual benefits promised to those who work the soil.
There is a preview of this book available (PDF file; will open in a new window).

I purchased this book for my husband, who's always been interested in farming, but was encouraged to look into other avenues. Throughout the time he was reading, he'd want to share various quotes with me, and would ponder the words of explanation or counsel or illustration. When he was finished, he soberly, reflectively commented, "If I had known this years ago, I would have done things differently (pause)...My life would have been different." Thank-you for researching, compiling and sharing - what a blessing!
