The Blue Letter Bible

Shelley Cramm

Shelley Cramm’s extraordinary journey as a writer began when she read Jesus’ words, “I am the vine, and my Father is the gardener” (John 15:1-10 NIV). God providentially used her novice's interest in gardening to spark a desire within Cramm to begin digging for every biblical theme that related to gardening—cultivating, sowing, pruning, and reaping—as well as the intimate horticultural detail in the mention of Bible plants. She soon discovered how much the Christian walk of faith mirrors the practical life of a gardener. Her years of prayer and diligent study, using Blue Letter Bible, led to the publication of a 52-week devotional, NIV God’s Word for Gardeners Bible.
