About the Author

Kathy Bingham Powell is a preschool teacher from North Carolina, a loving wife of over thirty years, and the mother of three grown children.  She received the inspiration for her book, Save the Seeds from her mother, Edith Bingham.  After the story of her original experiences in the garden were published as a  daily devotion in the Upper Room Devotional Guide, she decided to expand the story into a children’s picture book.   Before deciding to write and illustrate her own book, she has been committed to creating a Tiny Seeds Library, an expanded collection of children’s picture books to represent Biblical teachings.  In addition to this she is currently working on a Daily Seeds devotion guide for parents and children of all ages in an effort to expose others to scripture and enable them to read through the Bible in one year.  She has also played an active role in her church community garden by starting the “Sow-In-Love Tendergarden” (SILT) program.  Save the Seeds was written with the hope that others would understand their own responsibility to save and grow their faith by sharing scripture and spreading the love of God throughout the world, one seed at a time.  She believes that every day is a good day to plant seeds of Christian love and hopes that others will enjoy hearing her true garden experience from the viewpoint of Benny the tiny bean seed and Iris the flower bulb.
