Meredith wrote this book during recovery from an extremely challenging time in her life – having gone through a divorce, resignation from her long term teaching job and relocation to a different city to access better services for her autistic daughter. Her daughter was also very unwell at this time, becoming bedridden by a mystery illness. All of this had left Meredith feeling exhausted, fearful, alone and very isolated.
Meredith knew she needed to strengthen her fragile spirit and overcome the fear of this time. She sought the guidance of Scripture and the assistance of the Lord Jesus Christ, knowing that only He could bring comfort and healing at the deep levels required. Meredith knew that her relationship with her Creator meant He was available 24/7 and so she started to schedule regular time where she communicated with Him. Covered with prayer and Scripture, Meredith visualised meeting Jesus in a beautiful garden that she came to know as the Garden of Promise – so named for the promises of goodness and grace found liberally throughout the Scriptures.
This book is the result of these communications – an unforgettable and inspiring journey of encouragement and healing, where Jesus spoke new life into Meredith’s being. Her feelings of isolation lifted and she felt herself soothed, replenished and deeply loved by spending this time with the Lord Jesus Christ.
You, too, are invited to go on this journey through the pages of this book as you hear His voice and meet Jesus in the Garden of Promise.

“A wonderful, inspiring, insightful devotional book…”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Kathy Anderson
“This is a wonderful, inspiring, insightful devotional book. The author gently invites the reader to interact with Jesus, using written conversational dialog to inspire a rich, personal quiet time with the Lord. Several weeks of short, daily devotionals are broken down into 6 days of Jesus “speaking”, and 1 application day. Each entry is supported by scripture and gives the reader loving, Biblical encouragement that will help begin your day with God’s perspective. You will love this sweet, tender book, and feel closer to the Lord as a result of incorporating it into your daily quiet time.”
