After living with silent celiac disease for 15 years, Jet Widick's diagnosis presented an opportunity for her to seize control of her life from a once unknown assailant. As she fought to improve her physical health, she realized that her story could serve to help others on their journeys to wellness, and in doing so, discovered the deep healing power of poetry and how to find peace from within.

Her fourth book of poems features themes and topics around self-love, acceptance, and appreciating the details that turn an ordinary moment into the extraordinary. Her words encourage us to reflect on what brings us joy and to remove ourselves from the distractions that take us away from the vital things that mean the most to us; the things that bring lasting happiness and fulfillment.

22 Things is a beautifully designed and delightful mix of Jet Widick's poetic musings in alternating rhymes, rhyming couplets, internal rhymes, half rhymes, and free verse. Each poem is a reminder of the power of the present moment, and how in the present, something strange begins to happen. One discovers freedom and space to explore the nature of their true self. How in the now, life becomes bright and beautiful.

One of the key themes of this collection is that moments of wonder and miraculousness are hidden in the everyday. The author focuses on such details with energy and aplomb in her strongest pieces. One of the best is “destiny,” which tells of the simple joys of a summer evening outside one’s house: “In your backyard / Take a brain break / Free floating on the Alucia, / A vanguard / You don’t have to go far / Starry skies, mind tricks, pink sand / Jazzy sounds.” The author wonderfully shows how quickly little things like starry skies and jazz can give way to moments of rapture. Here and elsewhere, Widick writes in short bursts, but she pulls off the neat trick of maintaining a smooth flow, even when her lines are brief.

Modern society has made it harder than ever to be healthy. We’re confused by all the self-help books, new superfoods, cleanses and eating plans that tout they hold the secrets to wellness. We’ve also become trained to think that health, weight loss and self-care are indulgent, elusive goals that need strict rules and money to be achieved. These complicated messages have inaccurately shaped our personal relationship with food and our perceptions on wellness. They compete with our instinctive desire to do something so natural and enjoyable; to eat.

That said, being healthy does not have to be difficult. Forget restrictive diets, counting calories, macros or estimating point values of food. Let’s bring ease and happiness back to our wellness with a simple, easy-to-implement message: Food should be nourishing and uplifting, not mentally draining and emotionally discouraging.

Straightforward and simple, Gluten Free Soul Pilot uses well-researched principles and proven practices to guide readers through a personal “flight route”; a plan that targets individual needs to achieve better physical, spiritual and emotional health. It is filled with soulful strategies for wellness so you can take control of your mind’s autopilot and spend more of your time and energy on enjoying the authentic, inspired life you were meant to live.

Reviews:Kirkus Reviews wrote:

Because any life-changing decision requires a plan, the authors model their strategies after classic aviation principles. As such, readers are urged to create an individual “flight plan” by progressing through metaphorically titled chapters, including “Flight Route,” “Timeline,” and “Fuel Calculation,” among others. Overall, this collaboration brings a fresh approach to the gluten-free movement.

Jill Switzer, professional vocalist and author of The Diva Next Door wrote:

Gluten Free Soul Pilot is essential reading for those seeking joyful, holistic, gluten-free health. There are many cookbooks available for those with diet restrictions, but this is a book which inspires, uplifts and delights the senses with beautiful poetry, gorgeous photos, and ideas to slow down, simplify and just breathe. Now that’s a gift!

Rachel Jagareski of Foreword Reviews wrote:

The book is organized as a “flight plan” for gradually and systematically changing one’s personalized diet, exercise regime, mental and health habits, and other steps to bring life back into balance. The authors are gentle and nonjudgmental in their tone, constantly offering encouraging advice about making realistic, small changes toward more healthy life choices.

It’s not often you find a “children’s book” that has such a wide age-range appeal! This sweet collection of poetry delivers messages of appreciating the present, taking time to step back and take a deep breath, and more lessons that children can benefit from having presented to them at an impressionable age. The coalescence of these poems with beautiful illustrations makes for a perfect read aloud that brings smiles to faces of all ages.

Reviews:Jay Barbree, New York Times bestselling author wrote:

When it comes to using words as a carrier of thought and meaning, Jet Widick’s charming poetry is unmatched. Her book of poems, SAGE WORDS, is a warm and welcome companion, especially when you are alone.

Jerry Palen, artist and creator of the Stampede Cartoon Series wrote:

This is not just a book of poetry, it's also an art book. Author Jet Widick draws the reader, poetically and artistically, into looking at one's day and finding new ways of seeing what could be mundane turn into a quirky spiritual happening. And that is what art is. It reminds one of something in life we may have forgotten.

James T. Robilotta, professional speaker and author of Leading Imperfectly wrote:

So often we complicate life. We get in our own way and the stories we tell ourselves are often not kind. Jet Widick's playful poetry in Sage Words gets the reader to press pause on her or his life. Asks them to look around and take a minute to soak in the little things that make us smile. One after the next, her poems remind the reader that the details in our daily lives can be the splash of color that we need to brighten our days.
