Product Description

From the Back Cover

Family Fun, Education, and Inspiration–For All Ages!

"Finally, a simple, organized devotional guide especially designed to strengthen the Christian homeschooling family. Packed with creative activities, spiritual teaching ideas, interesting facts, and insightful Christian encouragement, 365 Days of Celebration and Praise is a practical, useful, and refreshing resource."
–Stacy McDonald, editor-in-chief, Homeschooling Today magazine

"Wow! Thank you, Julie Lavender, for doing all of this research for homeschooling mothers like me. 365 Days of Celebration and Praise is an information-filled resource that makes beginning a productive day of home-learning fun and easy."
–Lisa Whelchel, author, Creative Correction, The Facts of Life and Other Lessons My Father Taught Me, and So You’re Thinking About Homeschooling

"Julie Lavender has written, through her excellent research, something that will meet the needs of families looking for creative communication, educational growth, and spiritual development. Read it alone, or better yet, use it as a family daily devotional/communication guide."
–Dennis A. Davis, pastor emeritus, Crystal Cathedral, denominational district superintendent; college president; and author, Twenty-One Positive Principles for a Powerful Twenty-First Century Church

"Julie’s book gives creative ideas for homeschooling families to spend quality devotional time together. In fact, all families can benefit from Julie’s book. You can do the devotions every night–or pick and choose one or two per week–you’ll have fun!"
–June Cotner, author, Graces and Family Celebrations

We borrowed this book from the library and I can't believe what a wonderful resource it is! I am so excited to recieve my own copy and begin using it right away. Having such a relevant topic each day to introduce my children to, or to revisit with them, and have it already tied to scripture makes this one of my most looked for additions to our family library. Thank you Julie!

light devotions covering a huge array of topics May 6 2012
By p31Mom - Published on
Format: Paperback
All of the devotions follow the following format:
-The specific date for which the devotion was intended
- the title for the day
-a brief description of what is being celebrated & and a Bible text to read with it with a brief tie in to from the item/event/person being celebrated to the text.
-questions to discuss
-a related activity
-the curriculum connection identified (skill, subject)
-verse to memorize with the text and reference
-prayer suggestion.

The things that are celebrated are not specifically Christian or spiritual or religious. Examples include: tape measure anniversary, cow appreciation day, national laundry workers' week, answering machine anniversary, national tie week, mayflower day, national housing week, vacuum cleaner day and national pig day. The selection is somewhat random and few are of major significance. Some are of national historical importance but most are more of a trivial nature. It might be a fun approach if you like trivia. The tie ins from the subject of celebration are loose and the connections somewhat awkward and reaching. This would not be a serious way to study the Bible or get into a deep study of scripture. However, it might be a fun way to the start the school day with a misc., unexpected topic and a brief discussion of a scriptural topic. Might be a innovative approach to beginning the school day, especially if in previous years one has used a more serious approach and Bible study was actually a separate subject for serious study at another time in the school day.

There are a number of days celebrating specific foods but not so many that the book would not be useful to someone with food sensitivities.

WONDERFUL!!!!! Jan. 20 2008
By Queen Bee - Published on
Format: Paperback
We love this book and use it EVERY SINGLE DAY. The devotions are quick, relevant, and full-family friendly. This book is NOT just for Homeschoolers, but for any group or family looking for fun devotions.

It is okay... Jan. 10 2008
By Michelle Polk - Published on
Format: Paperback
but I didn't find it all that useful. More than half of the activities are not feasible. Also, there needs to be some preparation or the outcome of the devotional will be less than what is desired.

Perfect Devotional for Homeschoolers! Feb. 11 2011
By Stephanie Buckner - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book. I use it daily for morning devotions in our homeschool. Each day is different with a scripture story, a scripture, application, craft idea and more! Everything from National Drinking Straw Day to Easter devotionals. Every day is new and different and applicable. Perfect for all ages.
