this magazine-format photo essay derives its name from lyrics of the traditional Thanksgiving hymn “We Plow the Fields,” written by Matthias Claudius in 1782 and translated by Jane Montgomery Campbell in 1861
“We plow the fields and scatter the good seed on the land,
But it is fed and watered by God’s almighty hand;
He sends the snow in winter, the warmth to swell the grain,
The breezes and the sunshine, and soft refreshing rain.”
The first magazine originated as a Thanksgiving card for my family, celebrating God’s magnificent handiwork in nature. With hearts attuned to a thanks-giving spirit year-round, All Good Gifts makes a thoughtful gift for friends and family at any season.
Issues of All Good Gifts are crafted in Diana Wolverton’s signature artistic photographic and graphic design style. Each 24-page, 8.25" × 10.75" issue is printed in full color on 100-pound, 50% recycled paper.
