My Home Can Be a Holy Place

Lily is a young girl who is helping to make her home a holy place.
Through Lily's story, told by Kristen M. Oaks and illustrated by award-winning Latter-day Saint artist Dan Burr, we are invited into Lily's home to share time with her family.
Children will love seeing how Lily and the other children contribute to the spiritual environment of their home through their everyday activities. We seem them praying, working together, eating dinner as a family, reading the scriptures, counseling together to make good decisions, participating in family home evening, sharing the gospel with friends and family, and learning to love one another. They love the Lord and feel His Spirit in their home.
This delightful book shows readers of every age how homes can becomes holy places in which children grow up in the Lord.
The website www.HomeCanBeAHolyPlace.com is designed to be a living document. It develops the themes introduced in the book and is enriched by contributions from reader to reinforce teachings, expand ideas, and inspire children and parents to make their home a holy place.
My Review:
I loved this sweet book. It made me want to try harder to make my home a holy place for my boys. I've met the author, Kristen M. Oaks, and she is so lovely and full of the spirit. The book definitely has her voice - kind and filled with the light of Christ. I'm so happy to have this book on my living room table and be able to share it with my boys as we try to make our home a holy place.
I couldn't resist pasting in a couple of pages from the book. I especially love the entire family on Mom and Dad's bed reading the scriptures.
