Publisher's Description

Popular blogger Lauren Casper shares poignantly simple yet 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 every day 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. He blurts out little phrases that have their origin in something he saw 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.

From "it’s okay about it," a simple reminder that even when life is painful or difficult, things will be okay because God promises never to leave or forsake his children, to "you’re making me feelings," which teaches the importance of leaning into one’s emotions and, in doing so, sharing a piece of oneself with loved ones—Mareto’s simple yet profound wisdom is a reminder to embrace the broken beauty of life, to believe in a God bigger than human comprehension, and to love others even when it doesn’t make sense.

For all those looking to recapture the faith, simplicity, wonder, hope, courage, and joy of life, It’s Okay About It provides a guide to look inward and live outward, to discover the most wide open and beautiful life possible.

    I really enjoyed this book. It is about a parent who has an autistic son and she writes about his life lessons that we all can learn from and help better our life. I like the quote on page 15 says " What we see as set-backs or standstills are actually turning points in our story. We see failure, but GOD sees progress and gently nudges us to keep walking, or crawling,forward-to pick ourselves up and try again and again and again. " Another quote is " I'm learning that GOD often works that way in our lives-quietly behind the curtain, moving all the parts to create something beautiful and unexpected. But because I don't have his perspective, and I can't see the plan for building my unique life, I complain and worry."

    I also like the quote on page 27 that says " Scripture points to the important and value of all our emotions as response to life. There's an entire book of the bible titled Lamentations. A lamentation is defined as weeping, or a passionate expression of grief or sorrow. To lament something is to outwardly express the full agony felt in your heart, because there are moments in life when no other response is appropriate. Ecclesiastes 3:4 tells us there is a time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance. This tells me that weeping and mourning are just as important as laughing and dancing."

    I like the quote on page 41" sometimes GOD takes us on an exhausting, uphill battle. We stumble and fall and think we can't do it, but when we get up and take our Father's hand, we find that together we can do more than we ever though possible."

    Disclousre of Material Connection. I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, part 255.
