“The inspirational theme is about living in the moment and embracing everyday as a miracle,' McCracken said.

A Season of Miracles combines whimsical paintings of flowers, butterflies, angels and doves with poetic phrases that reflect her philosophy of life.

One that I especially like is: 'Joyful giving enriches our community with infinite possibilities.' Now that's a message that characterizes a great many individuals who support and encourage fine arts in our schools, museums and nonprofit organizations.”

“It is undeniable that life can truly become a thing of beauty through the eyes of an artist, and fewer people are better at expressing this through their chosen mediums than Aliza McCracken. Her work has been celebrated both locally as well as throughout the world.

'It is always a joy to share my inspirational art and poetry,' McCracken said. 'My new book, A Season of Miracles, expresses life with artistic grace.'

'Love speaks to the heart of creativity. When we embrace the fine art of living, there can be miracles.”

“Aliza McCracken has proven, once again, that she is truly an expression of divine creativity, worthy of all the honor bestowed upon masterpieces. The colors in her book, Creative Abundance: Artful Possibilities, are warm and vibrant, the artwork and writings are beautiful and inspiring. The book challenges us to create a more beautiful, better world by treating each other with authentic respect. It encourages us to humbly live our lives with the knowledge that we are God's beloved. It reminds us to celebrate our unique talents and to live lives of purpose and intention.”

“Aliza McCracken brings to her work the same honesty and simplicity by which she lives. The ever-smiling, always hopeful young author I first met a dozen years ago upon the publication of her first book has shown a singular ability to infuse her spirit into both her prose and her art.

And so it is with her latest release, Celebrating a Beautiful Life: Artistic Expressions from the Heart. One need not be an art critic nor poetry connoisseur to access and appreciate the sincerity and care in which Aliza approaches her work. Each page emits both a joy and a peace, almost a daily affirmation of what life can be.

Aptly subtitled, as her prose is clearly from the heart, one gains the sense of calmness and being soothed. To use her own words, 'Angels offer feelings of love, warmth, safety, and reassurance.' By that or any other measure, Aliza McCracken is more than an artist. She is an angel.”

“Before coming to know Aliza as a friend, I was blessed by her rare gift of prose and art. She brings grace to all of her work, and this new creation: Celebrating a Beautiful Life, fills the heart with joy and hope. Aliza lifts the burdens of weary hearts and encourages us at a time when much of life seems uncertain. She reminds us about what matters most. Put on some soft music, get a cup of coffee, put your feet up, and relax into her gracious words and inspiring images. You won't be the same!”

“Celebrating a Beautiful Life is Aliza McCracken's latest publication. A nicely formatted paperback, it is a pleasing blend of drawings--mainly angels and butterflies--and inspirational thoughts that express her philosophy of life in simple, uncomplicated prose. One phrase in particular speaks to me: 'The fine arts play a valuable role toward living in peace, joy and abundance.' I couldn't agree more.”
