Review: It's Okay About It by:Lauren Casper

 It's Okay About It: Lessons from a Remarkable Five-Year-Old About Living Life Wide Open
About the Book:
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.


My Review:
 They always say from the mouths of babes, you can learn so much truth. Popular blogger Lauren Casper can attest to this when she refers to her five year old source for this book, her son Mareto. Children have a way to get us to think. They get us back to our foundations. Mareto had a way of doing just that in this book. But the author takes a brave look at life through the eyes of her son and she writes about it. She dis so, so perfectly. This little guy will draw you in instantly because he looks at life through no lens at all.

 The lesson that Mareto teaches through his simple yet profound words will cause you to give life in general a second glance and possible learn more about yourself as well as those around you. A great book that will teach you a lot!
