Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and soon on its heels will be Christmas. For me, these holidays are filled with nostalgia as I remember and continue to practice certain longstanding family traditions. But I must admit that many of these older family traditions are mainly culture-based. Oh, how I wished that we had developed some traditions with something greater in mind! That is why I have found Noel Piper’s book, Treasuring God in Our Traditions, to be so wonderfully refreshing. Here is a description from where the publisher, Crossway:
Treasuring God in Our Traditions presents the importance of passing along Christ-centered traditions and a Bible-saturated legacy in Christ to future generations. Noël Piper helps her readers recognize how the “everyday” routines of life and the “especially” celebrations of holidays and dates can be practically passed down to future generations. When parents and grandparents seek to pass along the treasure of God to their children and grandchildren, they will develop and deepen their love for him.
When family traditions are rooted in the Bible, the next generations will see that the greatest treasure that anyone can have is the treasure of God.
Not only would you benefit from this wonderful resource but it would also make a great Christmas gift for a family you love.
