Over the last couple of months I've been a part of the launch team for Sally Clarkson's Lifegiving Home book which was released Feb 2, 2016. What an amazing experience. I was able to pre-order the book and thanks to Tyndale, obtain the Advanced Reader Copy to begin it early.
Let me tell you about the book. The book was written by Sally Clarkson and her oldest daughter Sarah Clarkson. I had the privilege of meeting Sally back in September while at a leadership intensive for the Love God Greatly Ministry and it was a blessing to be taught by her for TWO WHOLE DAYS! To have lunch and dinner with her and her youngest daughter Joy and to just get to know her. So when I saw that she needed members for her launch team, I admit, I JUMPED ON IT!
Reading through this book has made me want to be a better wife, mom, friend. I want to create an atmosphere of love and warmth in my home. I want my family to know, without a shadow of a doubt they are loved. I want those who visit my home to know they too are loved and cherished.
I have to admit, being a working-outside-the-home mom has its ups and downs and adding to it a swim mom and well, my home isn't exactly "lifegiving"...we live there...but I want it to be cozy. I want it to be welcoming. I want it to be WARM...just not hot..I mean, I do live in South Carolina and in the summer it DOES get hot.
If you, like me, are a mom or wife, or will be someday, pick up Sally and Sarah's book. It is life changing. It is "Lifegiving"!
