Reviews of “Walking Awake: The Face in Nature”
Walking Awake is truly like a walk through a world that is beautiful and surprising. And yet it is the same world we all live in. But Denise Crawn's mystical eye found the places where that world looks back at us, and she has captured them in remarkable photographs. The many quotes from people who have lived in our world throughout the centuries remind us that there is a long, rich tradition of finding spirit and personality in the natural world. Denise Crawn is a valuable guide. Walk with her.

Walking Awake became a part of my daily morning meditation and prayer. I felt each picture and quote drew me to nature's heartbeat. I am reminded when I reflect on the pictures and words in this book of how deeply connected our humanity is with nature. I notice nature's faces now as I go about my outdoor activities or are they getting my attention? Either way, Denise has made conscious the ever ongoing dialogue between myself and God's beautiful Earth. This book is a blessing to read and reflect upon daily. Thanks Denise for bringing such beauty into my heart every time I look at nature through your lens in this book. Blessings are cover to cover!

Denise Crawn has a beautiful gift. She can see and live in the worlds of Nature and Spirituality and her photographs reflect her inner eye which she has honed to a fine point. Her photos grab you. The quotations accompanying the beautifully laid out images enhance the wisdom she imparts to the reader.
Having met the author for the first time recently, I can see in her a world of vast beauty. I hope she writes more books with her stunning eye for the soul of God in Nature.
This book would make a lovely gift for any loved one…
