It’s Okay About It: Lessons from a Remarkable Five-Year-Old About Living Life Wide Open, by Lauren Casper

It's Okay About It: Lessons from a Remarkable Five-Year-Old About Living Life Wide Open by [Casper, Lauren]

Hello again, everyone. Today finds us with a new book review and this time it’s It’s Okay About It: Lessons from a Remarkable Five-Year-Old About Living Life Wide Open, by Lauren Casper.

Popular blogger Lauren Casper shares homespun focus and profound wisdom about removing the barriers we construct around our hearts and doing life full-on, all from the least expected source: her five-year-old son, Mareto.

Five-year-old Mareto finds color and light in the ordinary happenings of everyday life and delights in beauty just waiting to be found. Those are lessons he shares, often unknowingly, with his mom, Lauren Casper.

For Lauren, living with Mareto is a lot like playing the telephone game because as simple truth, the origins of her son’s speech are seen or heard, but by the time they make their way through his mind and back out of his mouth, they’ve transformed—often into beautiful truths about living a simple, authentic, love- and joy-filled life.
