Dirty dishes, piles of laundry, a dog whining for a walk - everyday annoyances or portals to joy and self-discovery? When life takes an unexpected turn and sends your personal life reeling, is it time to run away or sit still? Part photo diary, part art journal, part essay collection, Ordinary Sparkling Moments: The Art of Finding Yourself explores these questions and more, celebrating the deeper truths that await our discovery in some of life’s most mundane moments. In these pages, author and artist Christine Mason Miller chronicles the sometimes messy, bumpy journey of finding herself in the simple routines of her everyday life. (First Edition, Self-Published, 2008 / Second Edition, North Light Books, 2015)

"This gorgeous book gently shakes things loose in our souls that bring us back to a place of peace, gratitude and wonder. I love this book and return to it again and again, each time feeling like Christine saved a spot for me next to the fire...ready for another beautiful conversation."
{Melody Ross, Founder of Brave Girls University}

Everything starts as a dream. The goal could be a new home, a wonderful relationship, an exotic vacation, or fulfilling work, but in every case the dream comes first. In Christine’s first book, Plant Your Dreams and the Miracles Will Grow, inspirational words are paired with whimsical illustrations to create a unique gift book about making dreams come true.  From the book: “Only when we dare to spread our wings…do we begin to truly live.” (Published by Andrews McMeel Universal, 2003)
