The Life Giving Home

The Life Giving Home *****
by Sally and Sarah Clarkson

I enjoyed the easy going pace of this book. The Clarkson's, mother and daughter, take turns writing each chapter about intentional homemaking. The book is full of very specific ideas of traditions and things you can do to create a home environment where relationships of all kinds can flourish. After the intro chapters, the rest of the book's chapters are divided up by months. For example, February's chapter is about love. The March chapter is subtitled, "The Art of the Ordinary." March can be so dull and ordinary. I loved the idea of having a time of reading quietly for an hour each afternoon. She has a special place for each kid to snuggle and read. I've been trying to do that already, but I was encouraged to really make that happen each day. I'm hoping to foster a love of reading in my daughters, too.

I would recommend this book for any woman to read through slowly...month by month...and be encouraged.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
