The Life Giving Home Review

See inside here
This book by the well-known author and speaker Sally Clarkson and her daughter Sarah is like having a hospitality mentor. It's a gentle and sweet instruction in creating an atmosphere of rest and love and peace in the home. From meal times, bedtimes, caring for a sick child, welcoming company, etc. there's a plethora of homey topics. It puts me in mind of Edith Schaeffer's old book, The Hidden Art of Homemaking, except the homeschooling aspect because the Schaeffer's didn't homeschool. This book would suit anybody needing a little homemaking inspiration, especially young women just starting out.
The book is nicely done and in particular I liked the chapter entitled, "February: The Culture of Love". Sally said in it: " All our life accomplishments, from God's point of view, will be summed up by how much we loved God, and how much we loved other people." I love that! It pretty well sums up the message of the book too, and how to practically love each other- family, friends and neighbors.
*I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale Publishers for an unbiased written review.

About The Book:
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. (Don’t miss the companion piece, The Lifegiving Home Experience.)
