Our Favorite Traditions (Rhythms of The Better Mom Writers)

Traditions are important to our family.

“Celebrations are the ritualized interruptions in the continuum of daily life which remind us who we are, where we came from and where we are going.”
-Milo Shannon-Thornberry

God has used traditions and ceremonies and feasts and festivals all throughout history to help His people–

“Pass on before the ark of the Lord your God into the midst of the Jordan, and take up each of you a stone…that this may be a sign among you.
When your children ask in time to come, ‘What do those stones mean to you?’ then you shall tell them that the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord…
So these stones shall be to the people of Israel a memorial forever…so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the Lord is mighty, that you may fear the Lord your God forever.”
~Joshua 4: 5,6,7 & 24

When I’m not writing here, I’m usually writing for The Better Mom (as in…we all pray to be one) website.
I joined The Better Mom writing team even before the first post went live and slowly, over time, I’ve grown to trust and care about all of our writers. I consider them my friends…

We’ve been working on a special project over there!
And today, we want to offer you our first e-book, called–
Rhythms–Family Traditions Worth Passing On.

It’s a collection of meaningful traditions from our families that we’d like to share with you. Please stop by The Better Mom today to pick up your copy!

“May the ceremonies of our homes be true ceremony–   from Him, because of Him, pointing toward Him, honoring Him, thanking Him.  Amen.”  ~Noel Piper, Treasuring God in our Traditions

    I like the title of your e-book. Traditions are so important when raising your children. Now that I am a grandmother I can see even more the importance of traditions. I love that my children have followed many of the traditions we established while they were growing up.
    Blessings on this one!

    • I think you must be a very fun-wonderful-caring-Gramma….cuz you have worked your way into my heart and I’ve never even had shoulder-to-shoulder time with you…

      It’s fun for me to think of our kiddos carrying on traditions and passing them on to their own children.

    Delighted to find this piece of blog this morning. It looks like a refreshing place to dip my toes and wade into some goodness. I hope you don’t mind if I splash around a bit.

    Celebrations are a joy in our family. I look forward to learning more …
