in writing about family traditions within our home, one of the books that has influenced us in more ways than i can count is a homemade year by jerusalem greer.
jerusalem is a dear friend of mine & one who motivates our family to take a deeper look at the christian liturgical calendar.
as an author, minister & teacher, jerusalem is a wealth of knowledge. i didn't grow up learning much about the christian calendar, but jerusalem makes it easy for her readers to learn more.
she invites her readers to read just a few pages about the historical meaning of each holiday & live that out within our families & home with a meaningful craft or recipe. it's a beautiful picture of bringing meaning to our imperfect family traditions through the sacredness of home.
a homemade year weaves a story of family life & the historical christian calendar that is seamless & inspiring. in her book, she shares meaningful craft ideas for holidays such as easter & delicious meal ideas during the slower summer months.
and with her book, she also provides a discussion & reflection guide that can be found here that you can share within a book club or even a homeschooling group.
y'all, i absolutely love a homemade year so i asked jerusalem if she would share a copy with one lucky reader!
