Sprout: Imagine is your ticket back to childlike joy. Your leap into limitless thinking. Your invitation to wild possibility.
Oh, beloved, I know your childheart may feel far away. You've been hurt. You have grieved. Imagination and creative expression may feel unnecessary and even frivolous in the face of Reality. But what if deep joy and awe are still possible in daily living--and, in fact, are our divine birthright?
Say yes to your childheart with us (only $6 for sixty full-color pages):
What if we could reconnect to a lightness of being? What if we could once again be thirsty sponges, soaking up the world's succulence? What if we rolled up our jeans, splashed across creeks, felt the sun on our faces? What if we flopped on our backs in wildflower meadows and spotted mystical creatures in cumulus?
Oh, friend, let Sprout: Imagine be your wildflower meadow, your sunshine, your creekbed. In these sixty color-drenched, heart-full pages, we sing songs of celebration, compassion, and redemption. We speak in vibrant artwork, scribbled love notes from me to you, heart-galloping poetry, intimate interviews, brave prose, passionate prompts, and more (all in PDF instant download).
". . . transport us back into our own childhoods to when we, too, believed in fairies and fantastical things . . ." --Donni Webber (The Magic Onions), Thrive feature interview, page 27
Imagine with Donni Webber in her enchanting Thrive interview, exploring fairy gardens and heart-centered living, through the eyes of her beloved children.

Savor the brave color-splash and ink-scratch of our Sprout kindred in interactive features, sharing peeks into their creative practices, and offering what everyday activities help them tap into childlike joy. And much more.

"I pause, cool water midstream over blooming iris. Prairie Wildfire, she is called, this miracle of a flower, opening even after I unceremoniously tamped her bulb into waiting dirt a month ago, her protective greens barely green at all . . ." --Amanda Fall, the holy here, page 37
