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.

Pass

Love the author, can't stand the narrator. I would literally rather buy the kindle book and make the kindle read it in that robot voice.

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.

Nothing new

This book is full of solid family/home building advice. It gives a look at making hospitality a part of our everyday lives. But it wasn't much I haven't heard before and it is, even admittedly by the authors, repetitive. The beginning chapters were good, but I started skipping chapters in the middle and struggled to finish it.

Great reference book for homemaking!

The ideas for homemaking are wonderful. I will be using this as a reference book for tradition ideas, recipe ideas, celebration ideas, and inspiration for when I need a kick in the pants for homemaking!

I will listen to this on an annual basis

I absolutely loved this book.bit is a great reminder of what I want my home to be like for all who enter it, why I want it, and how to create it. I think I will spend a lifetime working on this, and glad I have this book to turn to for reminders. I love the breakdown by months, so I can listen to only one or two months at a time in the future and focus on what I choose.

Not for me

I was excited to try this book because the reviews looked great and it seemed to have a positive message that would bless my life.
I hated it. I didn't finish the book or even get half way. Perhaps I would have grown to adore it. I don't know, I just couldn't take how descriptive it was without getting too the point. I think the introduction to the book was over half an hour. The narrator is dramatic and normally that's good but it seemed to just antagonize me all the more.
This book was just not for me.

Inspiring!

Loved the combination of writing styles between mother and daughter. They compliment each other and gives credibility to the story- Sally's practical ideas and Sarah's experiences growing up in a lifegiving home, becoming a mature young woman in her own right.

Inspiring!

Was so inspired to create a home where discipleship and love are present, and where guests feel a breath of life as they walk through my door. Great narrarator, too!

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
