A Chosen Seed

from Mustard Seed to Abundance

Authored by Denise S. Bennett

Ready to reclaim your dreams and rediscover your life's purpose? Then look no further than Denise S. Bennett's A Chosen Seed: from Mustard Seed to Abundance, a compilation inspired by the life of family matriarch Carrie Lee Shaw Troy and in honor of her 100th birthday. The book presents literally hundreds of Grannyisms(tm), sayings that inspire peace, give comfort and provide guidance for achieving prosperity in one's personal and professional life. Born of the hardships of a life begun in abject poverty yet managing to possess modern-day relevance with astonishing clarity, the book's Grannyisms(tm) are built around the central metaphor of the mustard seed and its extraordinary real-life strength. Author Bennett connects these age-old words of wisdom and family anecdotes with valuable lessons and truths for today's challenges. Originating from a combination of both time and place, this wisdom shaped the centenarian's beliefs and choices, and as those concepts that spoke to her with the greatest power became intertwined with life experience, she was provided with the foundation necessary to impart her wonderfully insightful philosophy to subsequent generations. These Grannyisms(tm) are brought to life with such topics as soil preparation (or foundation building), planting, watering, nurturing, fruitfulness, pruning, and abundance. In every stage, the core notion is that every obstacle is an opportunity, and that no matter what life brings, abundance and prosperity are available to those with the faith to believe. The focus on looking for the good in a bad situation, along with the importance of reflecting on past experience to excel in the present, is a timeless concept that inspires and informs even today. A reminder of the healing power within, A Chosen Seed is an exceptional gift of guidance and sustenance. Presented in the words of an ordinary - yet extraordinary - person whose remarkable view of life is a reminder that everyone has the power to achieve what may seem impossible to grow from a simple mustard seed into abundance. A Chosen Seed teaches that when we strive to do our very best, an abundant life is, and has always been, ours for the taking.
