In recent years, the “slow movement” has been making a comeback. Have you heard about slow food, slow textiles, and other slow movements? It’s the opposite of how many of us are living now: glued to the latest technology, fast-paced lives, hurried and frenzied days. Sound familiar? Well, the slow movement is all about slowing down and remembering how things used to be. Before we all got into this hectic lifestyle. And slowing down is really a good thing for families.
According to author Shannon Honeybloom, it all starts at home. In her new book, Making a Family Home, she shows readers room-by-room how to cultivate an enriching shelter, one that encourages children to learn and imagine.
Combining the mindfulness of modern homemakers with an understanding of childhood development, and an attention to universal truths such as love, goodness, and beauty, Honeybloom outlines simple steps towards creating a beautiful and nurturing home.
“Anxiety-driven over-parenting has reach a peak, and parents everywhere are yearning to get ‘back to basics’ at home and with their children,” says Honeybloom, a parent and former educator. “In the end, it’s not about enrichment classes, educational videos, multiple after-school activities. It’s not about spending a lot of money or buying a lot of things. It’s about creating a calm, beautiful, and healthy home for our families. Such a home is the foundation for happiness and success in the world.”
It’s a soft-cover book with full color pictures and lots of good and practical ideas on making your home a haven for your children. She addresses all the rooms in the house, as well as outdoor spaces and her ideas are specifically geared towards nurturing a comfortable and creative environment for the kids.
I received a free copy of the book to review for myself and they are giving away 3 copies of the book to my readers, so all you have to do is leave a comment here to be eligible.
Giveaway will be open until Sunday evening at 6 pm Central time.
