Gently Planted is a collection of poems about growing up and growing into one’s self. In a whirlwind year, the author fell in love, faced deep mental health struggles, and questioned her faith. The mountain top highs and valley lows of that season drew out of her the poems in this book.
Throughout the book, she remembers her childhood and wrestles with the label “quiet” she was given as a young girl. She finds purpose in serving her homeless friends and learns to cherish her family. She falls in love with her future husband and realizes that vulnerability is challenging but so beautiful. She searches for hope and finds it in Jesus, in love, and in family.
