NEW! Little Bird Finds Christmas
A delightful new holiday book with a spiritual message, Little Bird Finds Christmas reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas and how to find it, wherever you are!
Back in their warm and cozy nest, Mama and Little Bird cuddled against the December chill.
"Want to know my favorite place to find Christmas?" said Mama.
"I do," said Little Bird.
"With you," Mama said.

Hi! I'm Marianne.
For 20+ years, I've been giving voice to the heart's journey through my children's picture books, cards, and other offerings that help you share your heart and connect with those you love. With 70+ books and nine million copies sold, I like to say I write for the “unique everybody.” Our stories are different and our feelings a lot the same. Curiosity and empathy are my jam. Inspired by my own childhood journey with epilepsy, I'm passionate about helping people feel seen and loved for who they are — and using the power of soul-reflection + self-expression to learn, heal and grow. (I'm a certified coach and reiki master, too!) As a wise therapist told me: When you belong to yourself, your belonging with others matters more. My hope is to be a witness and bridge to the truth of your own heart!
Rina, Mindful Beginnings
