Publisher's Summary

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 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.

Not what I expected

Any additional comments?

I was looking forward to reading this book as it got so many rave reviews. 4 months later & I'm almost finished. It's been a slow process of forcing myself to get through this. The author is so dramatic & descriptive (excessively so) that you loose what point she's trying to make. The narrator of this book made it worse. These two combined just gave off an antagonizing perspective of what ideals we should live up to. I feel this book also doesn't take into consideration everyone different socioeconomic and diverse backgrounds.

This book left me feeling completely inadequate

This book was fantastic until somewhere around the May chapter. Previous the May chapter, Sally’s and Sara’s word where life Giving. I felt inspired and related to their vision and heart towards God. But then, something switched in the writing. As i closed this book, it left me feeling inadequate. A failure. And completely overwhelming me with what I’m not achieving in my home. It’s left me feeling anger towards my apparently lazy non appreciative family. Sally’s words have brought to light that I have failed at creating a family culture that is beautiful and brings glory to God. I also feel like I have wasted time where I should have had laid down traditions. I also feel like she’s lying. There’s absolutely no way one can achieve all that she suggests or gives examples of what she does daily to worship God. The book began to morph in a list of bragging- like and printed Instagram profile.
It truly feels as if this book was a sledgehammer to my confidence. Where I was strong before With a foundation strong in my faith and family life, now feels like broken pieces and dust of that foundation. I know that this was not the intention of the writers , or maybe it was? A week ago I felt so convicted in my role as a wife and stay at home and homeschooling mother. Now the role feels insufficient.
I am utterly disappointed by what I had envisioned this book to be.

Heartwarming book for homemakers

I loved this book. It is seriously a beautiful book for mums in the home- to gain a new revelation of the importance of the calling to be a creator of home. I gained a lot of practical inspiration and will recommend this to all my friends
