Book Review: The Life Giving Home by Sally and Sarah Clarkson

The Life Giving Home is written by a mother and daughter duo. They write about their concept of home including the physical and spiritual realms. Sally writes from her perspective as a mother and the things she tried to create while Sarah writes from the child's viewpoint about things that left an impression on her.

I was really excited to receive this book as creating a strong home culture and a sense of hospitality is really important to me. I really liked that you get the viewpoints of both mother and child. However. I found it really hard to get into the meat of the issues. The Clarksons tried really hard not to make it a shallow book about decor, and it's not, they do focus on deeper issues but it was written in a way that made it seem shallow. I feel like there is a lot of telling and not showing. It made it hard for me to really get into the book.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
