    Many of life's undertakings have been transformative for me: marriage, motherhood, athletics, music, just to name a few. Some were extracurricular, some vocational, but all life-altering. As inconsequential as extracurriculars may seem to a person at any stage of life or vocation, I would argue that they are immensely important. Few extracurriculars, however, have been as transformative for me as gardening.

The exuberance I experience watching a garden I planted grow is a tremendous source of joy. Lastly, a life of gardening is one of cultivated appreciation for the beauty and wonder of the created world; a world in which God the Father gifted us, his children. This is why I always encourage others to try this time-treasured hobby.
