For Christie Havey Smith, her role as a mother is her greatest gift. But one significant day, tensions bring her to the floor, and the go-getter girl sees how she has misplaced pieces of herself in the midst of motherhood. Suddenly all she wants is to explore the possibility of being instead of trying to be everything. This is Christie’s charismatic story of following her toddlers in a humbling yearlong lesson on how to see the world. It is the heart song of a mother making life-changing discoveries with a view from three feet off the ground.  She sets out wanting to remember what it means to be amazed, be free, be attentive, be present and love without limits. What she experiences is the spiritual discovery of herself.
