Our hearts are a beautiful garden full of our most precious characteristics, our talents, dreams, and ambitions. It is in our hearts that we experience love, compassion, and greatness.  However, weeds can take root when we allow things like bitterness, hate, self-deceit, and insecurities take root.  Once we start to believe negative self-talk statements or unkind thoughts about others, the roots of the weeds entangle our hearts and can squeeze out the goodness that was once there. 


There are four categories of cards:

  • Plant Seeds of Goodness
  • Weed Out False Beliefs
  • Embrace Your Beauty
  • Nurture Your Garden


The metaphoric language lends itself to addressing issues of diversity, building positive self-esteem, and embracing characteristics that are different from other people.


You will receive a PDF download with the cover and instructions, a gameboard, and 4 front and back sheets of game cards. Set your printer to print both sides. Printing on cardstock is recommended.
