MESSAGES TO THE HEART – New Hardcover Book
Reflections of Beauty and Truth
by Elise and Phil Okrend
Messages to the Heart is a gorgeous hardcover book, born from an organic pairing of one couple’s passion: Elise’s thoughtful, healing pastel paintings paired with Phil’s mindful philosophy derived from years of coaching clients to success. Together, they bring a visceral expression of everyday inspiration brought together through art and words. Readers will feel touched, inspired and reminded of their “ah-ha” moments of truth and beauty in their own lives.

“Messages to the Heart is filled with short love letters that speak directly to my soul. Each passage reminds me that every experience I have had (even the painful) has shaped me into the person that I am today – a genuine, loving human being with a purpose that can shine light and love into the world around me. The beautiful artwork allows your memories to take flight by providing a captivating and serene framework for the passage. This is a book that I will return to frequently and will be a go to gift for those who need to be uplifted.” – Diane Moore, Founder Striving for More, Inc., Childhood Cancer Support
“There comes a time in our lives when we need to reconnect with our inner self in order to gather all our strength to face our difficulties. The Okrends’ amazing work was able to provide that bridge to my soul. On many occasions it seems that Phil’s words of inspiration are painted in Elise’s magnificent pictures.” – Senka Huskic, Boston, MA
