Andrew Peterson’s “Planting Trees” and The Deeper Value Of Motherhood

People say “moms are heroes,” but I think they usually mean this in a less emphatic, penetrating way. Moms are truly heroes when they shatter the darkness by pouring the light of the love of Jesus into the lives of their children. I absolutely love this song in every way. Truth, beauty, and goodness. And I love how it validates the beautiful life my wife lives and the terrible war she makes everyday on the darkness. I love how it names her for who she is. We all need to be named. Thanks, AP.

Another great thing about this song is that it means more, not less, than what is said above. It says so much about so much.

“Lean into something lasting…”


  1. Great song. I certainly hope my kids can see the light of the love of Jesus. Sometimes I just feel like a glow in the dark star that fades after a few hours. 🙂 Thankful for grace and mercy…

  2. Gina, our glow in the dark stars fade after 30 minutes! I needed this link! I heard the song last time I caught him in concert a few months back, but I don’t have the new CD yet…didn’t remember the title. Thanks Sam.
