Together: Creating Family Traditions

You are cordially invited to the November MOMS meeting on November 11th at 9:30am in the curch atrium! This month we welcome author Rondi Hillstrom Davis. Her book, Together: Creating Family Traditions is a beautifully photographed journal of family traditions, seasonal projects and recipes. It has won numerous awards and is recommended by This book hopes to inspire us to turn our attention away from the commercial aspects of the holidays, to a more personal expression of the seasons.

Rondi will be demonstrating some of the ideas presented in the book as well as discussing her "Family Style" philosophy. Rondi encourages parents today to consider shifting the focus of the time they spend with their children. Rather than lavish our children with material goods and an overabundance of scheduled activities, find ways to interact with our children and enrich the time we spend with them. Remember that simple things can bring us joy and every day is a great day to create lasting traditions with our families!
