A flourishing life is possible—no perfection required!

Women often feel like they have to have it all together in order to live a meaningful life. Instead they feel inadequate, overwhelmed, and exhausted as they to figure out how to do it all. Author, business owner, and mom to three Lara Casey offers sound and grace-filled advice: “We can’t do it all, and do it well. But, we can choose to cultivate what matters.”

Welcome to the journey of getting messy in the rich soil of possibility—embracing imperfect, grace-filled progress to grow a life of joy.

Written as part encouragement anthem and part practical guide, Cultivate offers wisdom from God’s Word alongside lessons Lara has learned in her garden. Woven throughout is her personal story that helps release readers from the pressure to achieve and gives them freedom to move from planning to planting a meaningful legacy. “It’s in the imperfect—the mess of the dirt--that good things grow,” Casey reminds readers. “Peonies grow through the dirt, and so do we.” Readers will learn to embrace the season they’re in, finding balance as they interact in fresh ways with their current life scenarios, with God, and in the communities where they are planted.

  • Cultivate is Amazing!!

    I loved “Cultivate” by Lara Casey!! Her book is a grace-filled and inspirational guide on living an intentional life, minus the perfection. The author shares her own life stories and biblical verses in a beautifully honest, humble, authentic, and heartfelt way. She takes you along her journey of seeking and finding God’s grace in the ups and downs, the messiness, in the seasons of her life. The book is laid out with thought-provoking and soul-searching questions for the reader to ask themselves, to help them see into their own life journey. “Cultivate” is written with wisdom and faith-filled words that speak to your soul. Lara uses journal prompts and reflection questions to help the reader implement all the steps into their lives. I love how Lara uses gardening terms and examples of her own gardening evolution to impart her wonderful message. “Cultivate” is rich with inspirational and spiritual nourishment for our hungry souls. I loved the actionable steps Lara shares to dive deeper into her message of embracing the messiness of our lives and being renewed in the Lord’s grace. Lara’s amazing book is about growth, renewal, seasons of wait, growth, and loss, getting our hands dirty, digging into the soil of our lives, nurturing the seeds, pruning our life gardens, cultivating and being a cultivator, embracing tension, and God’s amazing grace. It filled my spirit with hope and a new perspective on viewing my own life struggles. Lara is an excellent author and I cannot wait to read her first book, “Make it Happen”. “Cultivate” is a book you can keep rereading and never tire of. Each time I have reread sections I gain more wisdom and insight. The self-reflection sections are wonderful to do over again in different seasons of our lives, because they are always evolving. This is a book you will not be able to put down because it speaks to all those weary places in your soul. I felt so blessed by Lara Casey’s writing and faith-filled inspiration. Her raw honesty and life stories are spoken in authenticity and faith. Lara’s book also includes a Gardening 101 section which is filled with a wealth of information. and a Cultivate Together guide, which is great for group studies.

I loved getting to know her and her story while deep truths hit my heart and changed me. There's a definite blessing for anyone willing to cultivate their faith beside Lara.
