Beyond birthday parties, anniversaries, holidays, and holy days, there is the every day. And while the loss of the first tooth or the first day of school may seem like normal, ordinary occurrences, these authors show that even "just because" events are enough reason to celebrate the One who gives us life each day.
There is spirituality behind all celebration. With more than 200 inventive ideas plus Christian inspiration, brief reflections, and biblical examples of everyday celebrations, the authors give concrete, practical, and tangible ways to bring that spirituality into everyday. Readers will be encouraged to create their own family traditions and bring faith to life by making home a place where Christ, family, and friendships can be celebrated openly and often-because life doesn't have to be ordinary.
Karen Ehman, Kelly Hovermale, and Trish Smith started Homespun Gifts from the Heart workshops four years ago for churches and women's groups, including MOPS. Collectively, they've taught in public schools as well as homeschooled; contributed to magazines; won sewing, quilting, and cooking awards; counseled youth; taught Bible school; coached cheerleaders; created women's events-and sometimes all in the same day. They all live in Michigan.
