In Alma 32 we hear the parable of the word as a seed. Often, we discuss faith growing like a seed, while in reality the seed represents the word of God. When this seed is nourished by our faith, it swells and grows into perfect knowledge of a principle. This piece attempts to illustrate the artist's interpretation of the parable, where our Heavenly Parents watch our progress as we come to know their Son and our Savior, reaping the fruit of His divine love.
