This energetic book is as useful as it is comforting. Christian formation begins in the home and A Homemade Year gives us ways and means of accomplishing that with joy, holiness, and a healthy portion of just plain, old-fashioned fun.
I began reading A Homemade Year one afternoon when I had no fewer than a thousand things going on in my house. Almost immediately, I was drawn into Jerusalem Greer’s beautiful writing and became fascinated with her journey through an entire year of liturgical celebrations—-some of which (Advent, Epiphany) I celebrate in my own home, but some of which I never knew about before. Two hours later, I was still reading, happily resigned to letting my plans for the day slide. Jerusalem so clearly conveys the significance and beauty of liturgical tradition, and her celebration-specific recipes and crafts are sweet and meaningful, while at the same time completely do-able for everyone. This book is an absolute treasure. I want to share it with everyone I know!
Like many moms, I’m longing to create a sense of rhythm and tradition in our lives and our home, and this sweet book gives many imaginative, practical places to start.
With waffle crumbs and bacon drippings and brown sugar crystals, Jerusalem Jackson Greer leaves a Hansel and Gretel-like path to follow as we travel through the seasons of the liturgical year. A Homemade Year gives families a wonderful sensory way to share and experience the Christian story at home. I was charmed and moved by this book.
In a world that struggles to slow down and stay focused on what’s really important, A Homemade Year gives you new vision to do just that. I can’t wait to get started myself!
