Book Giveaway - Around the Table

I just heard that there's a giveaway of FIVE (count 'em, FIVE!) of these books over on Home Educating Association Reviews.  There's also a 25% discount if you want to order it, listed on the sidebar to the right.

The book is titled, Around the Table:  Connecting With Your Family at Mealtimes.  I'm waiting for my copy to do a review, but judging from her blog, this book looks like a gem.  It has input whether you are a family that struggles to have any mealtimes together, or one who already has regular mealtimes.  I'm looking forward to reading some of her tried-and-true tips for taking meal-time conversations deeper.

In her "Chapter Before the First," which I read online, she mentions that 4 generations ago, 2 brothers made a decision to go to a revival meeting.  One man and his wife made a decision to follow Christ, the other did not.  Every person in the first man's family for 4 generations has been a believer, while every person in the other family has not.  I think sometimes as homeschoolers it's so easy to get bogged down in the day to day and forget, our decisions and our lives can have eternal consequences, and not just for us.  We are passing on our faith to our children and to theirs.  So, I'm excited to read this and will post more later.
