What was your motivation behind this project? Like many Christian families, Pam and I have really struggle with the "right" way to handle Halloween. Though we loved it when we were children we were concerned with all the supposed ties to the occult that were being publicized. Our goal was to make choices that were first and foremost honoring to God and second beneficial for our children. In the process, we have tried everthing from running from the holiday to embracing it for outreach. It wasn't until we stopped long enough to discover the real roots of the holiday that we found real freedom in our celebration. We hope that those who read this book will discover that they too can celebrate without selling out by honoring the remarkable historical traditions of Halloween that have their roots deep in the gospel of the Christian church. We don't have to be scared of this holiday when we celebrate it as our spiritual fathers intended: As a day to honor those who gave so much to defend the faith. For those who are interested in truth instead of myths, they will enjoy a brief and factual look back at the beginnings of this holiday, ispiring stories of faith heros who are at the heart of Halloween and 15 original ideas that help families celeberate according to that tradition.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: You don't have to settle for Halloween "alternatives" this year. You can help your children grow in their faith, have fun, and reach out to others will a clear conscience before the Lord. Read and decide for yourself if you want to begin the process of Redeeming Halloween. It will be a lasting legacy for your family. Learn more about us and other resources at www.engagingwomen.com.
