Raising children to be strong and secure adults is the goal of every family. Therefore, families that share at least one meal together each day give their children a strong sense of security. As a result, children are stronger and more self-confident in the outside world. In her newest book, Feeding Your Family’s Soul, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle gives parents the tools to help achieve this goal.
In this gem of a cookbook/prayer-book/Inspirational book are easy to find ideas and delicious recipes to enjoy. Here are some of the recipes our family enjoys: Chicken Sausage Gumbo, Taco soup, and Irish Soda Bread. Also, Donna-Marie shares activity suggestions for parents related to saints, the seasons of the year, sacraments, and more. Most importantly, these suggestions and reflections help families have a more enjoyable mealtime.
Families are always in a hurry these days. In the hustle of everyday life, things like togetherness and quality time seem to have no place in a family’s daily life. Donna-Marie urges our families back to those slower days with grace, love, and delicious meals. I especially enjoyed seeing the recipes since I’m a recipe junkie, but the prayers and reflections are genuine and peaceful. With so much angst in our world, families need a place where we can come together and rejuvenate.
Therefore, I thoroughly recommend this book to families with young children. Grandparents, also, would benefit from having this book as a gift to their children.
