More about Seeds and Trees
Seeds and Trees is a story about the power of words. But, also, it’s a story to bring awareness to parents, peers, and counselors of how words truly affect young children. In Seeds and Trees the primary character, the prince (who looks awfully similar to how Brandon looked at a young age) gives and receives words (seeds) and faithfully plants and waters them. As they grow they become powerful trees that bring peace or pain, healing or hurt. It’s not until late in his life that a trusted friend comes along and helps him tend to the garden of his heart.
