About the Book
How do you instill in your family a sense of godly heritage while everyone is eating hotdogs and watching fireworks? While it may seem impossible, you can pass on values important to the Christian faith while celebrating year-round holidays - even those rarely celebrated holidays like Presidents' Day.
In Holiday Living, Brenda gives readers something to celebrate - an indispensable guide to living up the holidays in Christian style. Covering almost 20 holidays, readers will find fasinating history about how the holiday started and more importantly garner a better understanding of their faith connection to the holiday. In the true spirit of celebrating life in Christ, readers will find easy-to-use, cost-effective holiday ideas to help turn facts into memories, and provide opportunities to lay the foundation of Christian values as they worship.
In addition to the major holidays, holidays include Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents' Day, as well as cross-cultural holidays like Cinco de Mayo, St. Patrick's Day, and Kwanza.
About the Author
GrandmaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Holiday Living - Even for GrandmasMarch 5, 2013GrandmaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleI just started reading 'Holiday Living'. After reading all the preliminary pages, starting chapter one and finding what the main thrust of the book was, I eagerly jumped to chapter 6 about St Patrick's Day, as that is the next upcoming holiday.
My Granddaughter's wedding is coming up March 16th, the Saturday before St Patrick's Day. Most of our family members will be present and we will be spending St Patrick's Day together, so I read to find out what I, as Mom and G'Ma, can bring to the table to help my family understand the importance of faith and family and how to make this particular opportunity a 'holy day' indeed.
I wasn't disappointed. I am eager to use what I learned and look forward to continuing reading about making holidays holy days.
I can truly say 'Brenda Poinsett is my favorite author and I am always amazed at her insight into a vast array of subjects, all centered around Jesus.'
