Iron Stream Media
How do you instill in your family a sense of godly heritage while everyone is eating hot dogs and watching fireworks? While it may seem impossible, you can pass on values important to the Christian faith while celebrating year-round holidays—even those rarely celebrated holidays like Presidents’ Day.
In Holiday Living, author Brenda Poinsett gives readers something to celebrate—an indispensable guide to living up the holidays in Christian style. Covering almost 20 holidays, readers will find fascinating history about how the holiday started and more importantly garner a better understanding of their faith connection to the holiday. In the true spirit of celebrating life in Christ, readers will find easy-to-use, cost-effective holiday ideas to help turn facts into memories, and provide opportunities to lay the foundation of Christian values as they worship.
In addition to the major holidays, holidays include Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, as well as cross-cultural holidays like Cinco de Mayo, St. Patrick’s Day, and Kwanzaa.
