Author & Gardener
Shelley S. Cramm loves to see the ancient words of Scripture come alive in today’s gardens. She has published My Father is the Gardener, Devotions in Botany and Gardening of the Bible and God’s Word for Gardeners Bible, writes the Devotions Blog at www.gardeninDelight.com, and speaks enthusiastically about plants of the Bible and the connection of garden to table to God.
Her background includes work in architectural and garden design, and leadership in local Bible study, prayer groups, Toastmasters International, and GardenComm: Garden Communicators International.
Inspiration to write a gardener’s Bible grew out of a routine of morning journaling and an enduring hope to finish up the laundry and get out to the garden. Shelley and her husband Topher have five children and live in Irving, Texas. See More
Shelley’s work has been featured in special contributions to The Dallas Morning News, where she recently earned a Silver Award from the GardenComm Media Awards for her Easter time article, “These 5 trees take you on a biblical journey of grace and growth”
Garden in Delight was formed out of God’s Word for Gardeners Bible and its uncanny way of moving readers to garden and table—growing, smelling, seeing and tasting God’s goodness for themselves. Our brand grew out of curiosity and sheer delight to celebrate the let’s-give-this-a-try whim of planting God’s Word in a tangible way. We hope you find our books, blog, and Bible plant design idesa a joyful complement to your daily practice of keeping, tending, and cooking from your garden. Any size garden, that is, from window sill pots to acres of flowers and produce.
The mustard flower represents our simple prayer: May you get to know God in the garden, live in his presence, believe in his possibilities, and delight in his Word.
