Inspiration that makes your life a sparkling fountain! Mar 17, 2007
The book is about living out a creative, christian lifestyle in everyday life. It's really an art to live like that. A comparison is made with our Creator God who is tremendously creative in nature. In all of us there is a hidden artist. Especially in this day and age of hurry and microwave food this book is very refreshing! Edith Schaeffer, founder of L'abri has described her vision on life in a great way! This is the most inspiring book ever!
Changed my view of homemaking Jan 15, 2007
I wasn't prepared for staying at home with my kids. I was overwhelmed by the "Martha Stewart" model. This book freed me up to be myself and create a home for my family that we could all live with. I just bought the book for the next generation - my nieces.
THE BEAUTY OF CREATIVITY REVEALED IN THE HOME Sep 17, 2006
This book is one of those staples that should be on the bookshelf of every Christian woman. I reread it periodically whenever I need a reminder that even the most humble of homemaking skills is an artistic gift from God.
Schaeffer writes, "Whatever form art takes, it gives outward expression to what otherwise would remain locked in our mind, unshared." She explains how God is the divine Artist, as we can see in Psalm 19, "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handywork."
The detailed pen-and-ink drawings throughout the book are captivating enough, but Schaeffer will help you realize how your talents can bring beauty into your world.
Each chapter delves into one of the hidden arts, such as music, painting, interior decorating, gardening, flower arranging, cooking, writing, sewing, and recreational pursuits. I loved reading the author's descriptions of her mother and what a godly influence she had on her. This book would make the perfect gift for brides to be or any woman who needs a refresher on how the ordinary can be transformed into the exquisite, when fused with the joys of creativity.

No time for self pity Jul 28, 2006
DEfinitely a must read for any woman who feels her role as wife and mother HAVE to be boring! If you apply the ideas in this book, you won't have time to feel sorry for yourself! I'd give this book away over and over again if I had multiple copies!
Inspirational and motivating Feb 23, 2006
Let's overlook how dated the book is. It stands above most in how very inspirational it is. I have read and studied many homemaking type books over the last ten years. Mrs. Schaffer gives new perspective and practical ideas that motivate me to try something new in the area of living a fulfilling life where you are. Bloom where you are planted!
