In This House We Will Giggle

Life seems to get in the way of fun most times. Being a mom is hard and sometimes it's just too easy to get bogged down by all the work and not have enough play.

I knew I needed In This House We Will Giggle by Courtney DeFeo. "Making virtues, love & laughter a daily part of your family life." A reminder to make every moment count is often needed.

What I like best about this book is that it is broken down into 12 different parts...one chapter for each month. Instead of reading through a book and forgetting half of what is said this book can be gone back to time and time again throughout the year to bring a little more happiness into your home.

Each chapter focuses on one virtue. I will use November as an example. The theme this month is Gratitude. There is a memory verse, definition of the verse, Bible verses to read, questions for family discussion (such as "What are some signs that someone has an ungrateful heart?"), a pray to say aloud, an activity to do together, and several helpful hints on how to teach gratitude to the family throughout the month. It really is a month long project that should end up bring happiness, joy, and fun into your home.

Other topics include:  joy, love, forgiveness, faith, patience, perseverance, respect, responsibility, service, humility, and generosity. 

I also like that this book applies to all age ranges. Some projects are good for teens, some for elementary age, and some for toddlers. The whole family can learn and grow together.
