The Life Giving Home by Sally & Sarah Clarkson
From the publisher:
How to make home your family s favorite place to be . . . all year long. Does your home sometimes feel like just a place to eat, sleep, and change clothes on the way to the next activity? Do you long for home to mean more than a place where you stash your stuff? Wouldn t you love it to become a haven of warmth, rest, and joy . . . the one place where you and your family can t wait to be? There is good news waiting for you in the pages of The Lifegiving Home. Every day of your family s life can be as special and important to you as it already is to God. In this unique book designed to help your family enjoy and celebrate every month of the year together, you ll discover the secrets of a life-giving home from a mother who created one and her daughter who was raised in it: popular authors Sally and Sarah Clarkson. Together they offer a rich treasure of wise advice, spiritual principles, and practical suggestions. You ll embark on a new path to creating special memories for your children; establishing home-building and God-centered traditions; and cultivating an environment in which your family will flourish.
What I liked about this book was that it was broken down by month. Each month had its own section and ideas to use that month to make your home life-giving. That made is simpler for me to digest. Honestly looking at the book all at once was overwhelming but if I chose to just read a section at a time and digest that portion then I could get more out of it.
I would recommend that people not feel that they have to do everything like the Clarksons. Instead let them inspire and give you ideas to springboard from. There are wonderful ideas for practical things and environmental things for the home but not everyone will be as these authors are. If you find yourself not inclined to do certain things from this book don't be discouraged! Take what works and keep reading!
I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
