Giggles in the House

I loved this book. Every chapter taught me how to relax and have fun with kids with a different fruit of the spirit or attitude from the Bible. It taught me how to let go and wisely choose battles. The best part about this book is that it suggests activities to do with each of these attitudes that you can do to liven up your family environment.

I would def. want to try this book out when I settle down and start a family. It's good for hectic families and families who needs some down time and unstructured parts of the day. Instead of sitting in front of a screen, you and your family members can do things together.

Courtney DeFeo believes that instilling virtues in children starts with laughter, not lecture. That perspective propelled her to create this idea-packed book, in which she offers motivating reflections, real-life stories, and a sandbox full of inventive ways to help you turn your kids’ hearts toward God.

Each chapter focuses on one virtue that is key for developing your child’s character. Along with insights into how this virtue plays out in the nitty-gritty of life, Courtney includes a memory verse, activity ideas, and discussion questions to reinforce that virtue throughout the month. Here you’ll find a full year of ways to draw your children closer to God through delightful antics like Family Olympics, One Fancy Feast, and Light ’Em Up.

In This House, We Will Giggle shows you how to capture the hearts of your children through fun—so that they experience the goodness of Christ, the joy of following Him, and the difference they can make in the lives of others.
