About this item

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. For Lauren Casper, living with her five-year-old autistic son, 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. Mareto has a number of mantras, scripted phrases he says over and over. They seem silly at first, but as Casper has thought about them over time, she's realized he is actually sharing important life lessons.
