Sometimes Barren Fields Are Most Beautiful- A Word by Michelle Holderman


There’s just something really beautiful about a barren field to me. I love
the way it looks. I love how big and open it is. I love its simplicity. I
love to photograph it.


Even though nothing is tangibly growing, a barren field holds great
potential; a field of dreams, if you will. This is rather symbolic of some
seasons we go through in our lives.


Sometimes we’re planting and sowing. Sometimes we’re waiting for the

our hearts and spirits. He’s preparing us to grow out our purpose. And this
