I enjoyed this book and found it to be a quick & easy read. My favorite part of the book is when they talk about the consequences of remembering & forgetting. Two "celebrations" that we have started in our family are The Joshua Basket (page 55) and The Proverbs Notebook (page 63). A few "celebrations" I would like to turn into family Bible Studies when the boys are just a tad bit older. Another "celebration" that is a future project is the Mom and Dad's Book of Treasures (page 83). I did find it a bit much that they celebrated each idea with all 7 of their children. All in all the book was more than well worth my time and God has used to bless our family. I would recommend to any of my friends looking for ways to practically apply God in their family's everyday life.
Excellent book! Full of ideas to incorporate your Christian faith into your family life. Ideas for special occasions, specific passage celebrations for sons and daughters. Each chapter closes with questions for personal reflection,a personal prayer and tools needed for creating your own celebration,if applicable. I was challenged to become a better parent and strive to tie my child's heartstring to God's truth.
