Thanksgiving with a Purpose
Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching … so do you have a plan to teach your children what Thanksgiving is really all about? MomLife Today would like to introduce you to a wonderful book and CD combination that Barbara Rainey has created out of her desire to teach her children and grandchildren the history of Thanksgiving and the importance of living a life filled with gratitude. Thanksgiving: A Time To Remember is a book and CD combination that has become a seasonal favorite of thousands of moms around the country, and we invite you to make it a part of your Thanksgiving tradition.
In addition, why not bring that same connectivity to the Thanksgiving dinner table you will be sharing with family and friends by bringing along Let’s Talk Turkey as a hostess gift? It’s practical as a set of place cards for dinner guests, and it’s intentional because it provides prompts for dinner conversation around the history of Thanksgiving and the sharing of what each guest is grateful for in their lives. What a great way to create family memories with meaning and intentionality!
Today on MomLife Today, Tricia and I take a closer look at these two Thanksgiving with a purpose resources!
A holiday for celebrating faith, family, and freedom, Thanksgiving Day is both distinctly Christian and exclusively American. Barbara Rainey has created an excellent resource for enabling you and your family to remember the past, recognize God’s hand in our history, and express thankfulness to Him for His goodness today.
This story of the Pilgrims’ faithfulness and biblical thankfulness is accompanied by a CD of songs of worship and praise that will call your hearts to gratitude. It’s a wonderful opportunity to enrich your family’s awareness of our nation’s Christian heritage, provide models of courage and sacrifice for your children, and establish a tradition of sharing your gratefulness with one another, which will build a legacy of memories for the future.
If you’ve ever hoped Thanksgiving could last longer and mean more, then fill your holiday with godward gratefulness, warm conversation, and rich history with the Let’s Talk Turkey resource pack. Suitable for any spiritual level, these eighteen ink-jet-compatible table tents serve as place cards with a thought-provoking question of gratitude for each guest. They’re also designed as keepsakes for each person to record a point of personal thanks. Our host guide will help maximize your experience and get your conversation cooking.
