"The Lifegiving Home"

"The Life Giving Home: creating a place of belonging & becoming," is an excellent read and one I am going to dive right back into and slowly read through it again to really apply each chapter.  The first few chapters focus on home in general, the feelings of home and what home is.  Then the rest of the book is divided into 12 chapters, with a chapter for each month and a focus for that month.  January focuses on creating a framework for the home, meaning developing a routine and overall rhythm for the home.  This focus fits in perfectly with January and the whole brand-new, fresh start mindset that goes along with the beginning of a new year.  Each chapter has ideas, suggestions, and shared thoughts to help each of us create our homes, our safe special space for ourselves and our families.  I love the variety of ideas as there are suggestions for creating game nights, enjoying impromptu "adventures," creating rituals, including children in things that you may not necessarily think to; so many ideas.  Each person has a different picture and view of home, of beauty, of what makes a beautiful home and what makes a home her home.  This is a wonderful book to help each of us create our beautiful home, our sacred space.
