Story Behind the Book

We believed that the best memories aren’t necessarily made of grand plans, vacation budgets or whole weekend outings. Indeed, the best memories are often made of delight in silly, simple things, and the most precious moments are just that – only moments: a hug, a tickling match, a pillow fight, a surprise stop for ice cream, or a detour from the ordinary to see the stars. This collection of ideas is meant to be just that – ideas. They may make you think of even better ways to create traditions, but these are places to start. May we all hold each other a little more closely and remember “home” a little more fondly because of ordinary days made holy by the sacrament of loving.

More About Gloria Gaither, Shirley Dobson & Carrie Hartman


Gloria Gaither Author, award-winning songwriter, and speaker, Gloria Gaither is known as a stateswoman in the field of Christian ministry. Gloria has written lyrics to more than 600 songs, including such gospel classics as "Because He Lives," "The King Is Coming," and "I Am a Promise" and has authored such best-selling books as "Because He Lives, God Gave the Song", and "Friends through Thick and Thin".

Gloria Gaither (born March 4, 1942) is a Christian songwriter, author, speaker, editor, and academic. She is the wife of Bill Gaither and together they have written more than 700 songs. She performed, traveled and recorded with the Bill Gaither Trio from 1965 through 1985. Since 1990, she has served as a performer, recording artist, songwriter, scriptwriter and narrator for the Gaither Homecoming series of television broadcasts, video and DVD releases, and audio recordings.

She was born Gloria Lee Sickal in 1942 in Michigan, a daughter of pastor Lee Sickal and Dorothy Sickal. She spent most of her childhood and high school career in the Battle Creek area of Michigan, working a brief time for the Kellogg Company. When Sickal graduated from high school, she attended Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana. There, she triple majored in English, French, and Sociology. Upon her graduation, she took a job at Alexandria Monroe High School as a French teacher. There, she met Bill Gaither, who was teaching English at the time. She married Gaither in 1962, and they began writing songs recreationally.

Bill and Gloria began writing songs in the 1960s, and many those songs (including Because He Lives, I Am Loved, Something Beautiful and many others) would go on to become church hymn book standards across North America and around the world. By the end of the 1960s, Gloria, Bill, and Bill's brother Danny Gaither were touring steadily as the Bill Gaither Trio, singing and recording songs Bill and Gloria had written. After touring with the Bill Gaither Trio for nearly 20 years, Gaither drew her focus to the Gaither Homecoming series. She has been an active presence in every video production. In 1991, she attended Ball State University and received a Master of Arts in British and American Literature. She taught as an adjunct professor at Anderson University from 1987-1988 and 1996-1997.

In 1996, she spearheaded the creation of Gaither Family Resources in Alexandria, Indiana, and currently serves as co-owner and managing director. In 2002, Gaither launched Homecoming: The Magazine, and she currently acts as writer, interviewer, and contributing editor.

In 2000, Bill and Gloria were named Christian Songwriters of the Century by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), an award based on the songwriters who have had the most songs recorded over the past 100 years. Gloria is the recipient of seven honorary doctorate degrees, and she is the author of more than 40 books including 20 children's books.

Gloria Gaither currently resides in Alexandria, in the state of Indiana.

Give your children beautiful memories that will last forever!  Dec 30, 2006
Love, love, LOVE this little book! Divided up into seasons (beginning with Spring), this little book is chock-full of wonderful ideas for creating new family traditions in your home that your kids will cherish for a lifetime and will draw your whole family closer together and closer to God. This book is well-written and full of great illustrations! It is deeply spiritual - Scripture verses are scattered throughout and there is an overall awareness of the Church calendar - without ever being preachy. It covers every possible "holiday" in all four seasons, including a few surprises like The Last Day of School and Grandparents' Day! My hands-down favorite is the Birthday Party for Jesus - a hit with my kids! Why not have a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas Day?!? What better way to teach children the REAL meaning of the season?!? A wonderful part of childhood is all the beautiful memories you have forever, and this book will help you create new and wonderful memories in your children's lives. Highly recommend!
