THE ROSE GARDEN...remembering our beauty in tough times. Women, as the co-creators and the ones entrusted with bringing new life into this world, we must honor our strength which rests in our innate gentleness and softness. Our energy which protects an unborn for nine months while it develops all that it needs to survive outside of the womb, is the same energy which will restore wholeness and sanity back to humanity. We cannot do it however listening to others telling us how we should demonstrate our femininity. At our core level we KNOW! We know how to bring LIFE forth into existence. We know how to sustain and maintain life. We know because we are created that way. The female energy is the one chosen to bring life forth! Women from all walks of life are presented, inclusive of individuals with physical and psychological impairments; over-comers of severe obstacles and challenges and those who just refused to be dictated to by someone else as to how they should live their life. In the "ROSE GARDEN" you are given pages to write and document your thoughts and feelings. You are given affirmations, little notes of wisdom, and tidbits of advice along the way. Use that which best suits you. The process described in the book has been closely associated with the physical labor of pruning a garden, removing the weeds. Removing and discarding the debris and garbage from the garden is a must. "THE ROSE GARDEN...remembering our beauty in tough times," provides some tools and suggestions to assist with your pruning process. The 'seed', the thought, our intention is pure and uncluttered with influences from without or that resides outside of us. We can recognize the true message, the truth of who we are and proceed from that vantage point. For we know we alone are the mothers of civilization, no life exist without us. That is extremely powerful, when we allow that thought to penetrate our essence. When we are motivated by our unique characteristics and abilities, we willingly prune away or remove all that which does not benefit us. YOU, my dear, are the creator! "While for women, 'THE ROSE GARDEN' can also give men insight into the world of their wives and significant other. By allowing ourselves to get in touch with the reality of what women experience, sometimes because of us. We too, find spiritual and emotional healing as we seek to become the men The Creator intended for us to be. After reading, 'THE ROSE GARDEN', we may never see a rose the same again. We will come to realize it is truly the expression of a woman's journey to her full beauty. And so in giving her a rose, we are expressing our truest love for who she is, a ROSE!" from the preface written by Rev. Clarence Glover, Dallas Texas. "Sandy Rodgers has reached deep within her soul to discover the secret of the ages - healing the feminine energy. She brings a new thought to the challenge we endure as women of low esteem. Her personal testimonies and affirmations will heal the hearts of her readers. She has joined the ranks with Terrie Williams, Iyanla Vanzant and Terry Cole-Whittaker and many others on the path." Reverend Dr. Barbara King, Founder/Minister, Hillside Chapel and Truth Center, Atlanta, Georgia. "In this small volume, Sandy Rodgers provides a wonderful 'gardener's manual' for Sisters to cultivate themselves as the true roses of woman-hood that they are. She draws from her vast and rich personal experiences of overcoming the weeds and resistances to her own growth. Sandy then brings from that reservoir a rich and meaningful set of ideas and practical tools to help any woman recognize that no matter where she has been, she is still a rose and with a little attention to her self, she can bloom beautifully again. This manual will help any woman to 'weed' her garden and cultivate the beautiful roses of their being." Dr. Na'im Akbar Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Florida State University.
