Giving creative tools and inspiration
to soothe your soul

Mom Soul Soothers

I originally created Mom Soul Soothers to encourage mothers to take care of themselves.  However, I soon realized that my posts and quotes reached and touched people of all ages from around the world.

Indeed, it doesn’t matter where you are in your life story, or who you are, we all hold a soul that longs to be soothed.  It’s true that you can tend to your health and sharpen your mind, but without a calm center little else matters.

Imagine growing your well-being and self-love from deep within.  It is possible.  Nature is just one portal to this magical space.  I’d love to guide you on the way . . . and soothe your soul as I do so.

Scarlet Oak

Autumn whispered to the wind, “I fall but always rise again.”

For a long time, tree sprite Scarlet Oak has watched autumn fall and rise in the same way amidst her forested society of sprites. Wingless and bound to live and die with her birth oak, Horace, she longs for a deeper existence. Then, in 1977, her world is shaken when an autistic boy wanders into her woodland and they share a soulful moment before he takes his life on her tree. Smis, a Grim Reaper, arrives to usher the boy’s spirit to the Dark, but Scarlet insists that the boy did not intend to die. In a rare show of mercy, Smis gives her one year to find proof that the boy’s spirit belongs to the Light.

Scarlet leaves behind all that she has ever known. Passing as a teenage girl, she branches into the grieving hearts of the boy’s parents on a Maryland farm. But as secrets, fantasies, lies, and beautiful truths shadow her quest, the stage is set for an unimaginable fate to fall . . . when autumn rises again.

Narrated by three memorable characters—Scarlet, Horace, and Smis—Scarlet Oak is a mystery, a love story, and a tribute to resilience and the unique gifts that every soul has to offer.

“Weiland-Crosby weaves a moving tapestry. . .
[T]his rich fusion of connection and resilience will remind readers of their own magic.” 

–BookLife Reviews

“It is a fairy tale for the real world . . . a compelling story that is a work of art.”

Narrateography Art

Narrateography is a meaningful way to combine the power of words with the visual impact of photography. By pairing inspirational or thought-provoking quotes with beautiful images, we create a powerful and emotional experience.


Whether displayed in homes, offices, or social media feeds, photographs with quotes can inspire, motivate, and uplift individuals. These beautiful quotes are unique, as they narrate a story within the imagery in a way that connects to our human experience, and evokes deep emotions.


The stunning nature photography by Eberhard Grossgasteiger serves as the soul-stirring canvas on which Angie Weiland-Crosby paints her soulful words.
