What goes into the making of a home?

There is a “need” for home and that feeling of belonging to a home.

Home is who God is in a very tangible way.

But how do you create it?

Today I’m talking with mother and daughter duo Sally and Sarah Clarkson who have teamed up to write the book “The Lifegiving Home“.

Home isn’t necessarily one physical house that you stay in for a long time but more a certain identity and culture that you carry with you wherever you go. 

Sally and Sarah share with us today that even though their family has moved many times there has always been a balance between rhythm, routine and play that went with them. Today they share encouragement and practical tips on how you can create that same atmosphere within your family home.
