I not only grow gardens, but I have grown a marriage of 39 years, I have grown 3 kids, I am helping to grow 4 grandkids, and I am also growing myself.Kathy Wilhelm
- Planting requires patience.
- The plant that grows is often different from the seed we planted.
- Sometimes we grow from pain, and other times we merely grow through it.
- The best thing we can do for a hard-hearted person is to shower them in love.
- We are more likely to help others grow when we ask fantastic questions than when we pile on our opinions.
- Unlike in gardening, it is never too early nor too late to plant seeds in our relationships.
- We are more likely to experience personal growth when we give ourselves permission to make mistakes, take risks, and ask questions.
- Whereas a competitive environment can stunt our growth, a collaborative environment is fertile ground for positive change.
- When you realize that your personal growth is not what you had hoped, commit to examining and adjusting your growth process.
- Remind yourself each day that you are not only on your own journey, but you also have the potential to impact the many journeys around you.
- Don’t allow yesterday’s discouraging harvest to stop you from planting new seeds today.
Trust The Process
There is so much that we do not know and so much that we cannot see. This week, Dr. Michael Brown is joined by author and speaker Barb Roose in a conversation about having hope in the midst of dark, dull, and difficult days.
Never Give Up
Sometimes the only way to get to the finish line is to simply decide to keep going. Kathy Wilhelm joins Dr. Michael Brown as they share stories about holding on to people, passions, and goals when obstacles arise.
Foster A Child
Most of us spend our lives running away from hard things. But what if we intentionally turned around to run toward something that is equal parts difficult and worthwhile? This week, Dr. Michael Brown and Dr. Beau Johnson reflect on their journeys as foster parents of a collective twenty-eight children over the past twenty years.
