Local Author Debuts Story Collection That Reveals the Human Spirit

Open Boxes- the gifts of living a full and connected life by

Christine Organ

January 2015, Chicago, IL Blogger, freelance writer, and author Christine Organ releases a debut story collection that reveals the sacred through everyday living. Like a skilled weaver, Organ laces personal insights, anecdotes, and observations into a skilled tapestry of the human spirit.

Book Description

Through stories about everything from spirituality and parenting, self-acceptance and friendship, shopping at Old Navy and bowling with preschoolers, readers will be inspired to gently lift the lids off of their compartmentalized lives and tie together the torn and tattered pieces that lie inside in order to live more fully and connect more deeply with the people and world around them. Open Boxes is filled with stories of comfort, struggle, heartache, joy, insight, compassion, resilience, and redemption. Like a cup of coffee with a good friend, the stories will soothe and inspire, uplift and motivate, entertain and encourage.
