Publisher's Summary

Make your table a place where your family and friends long to be - where they will find rest, renewal, and a welcome full of love.

Beloved author Sally Clarkson (The Lifegiving Home, Own Your Life, Desperate) believes that meals lovingly served at home - and the time spent gathered together around the table - are a much-needed way to connect more deeply with our families and open our kids' hearts. Food and faith, mingled in everyday life, become the combination for passing on God's love to each person who breaks bread with us.

In The Lifegiving Table, Sally shares her own family stories, favorite recipes, and practical ideas to help you get closer to the people you love...and grow in faith together.

Inspirational for a mom in ministry!

I am a homeschool mom of three young boys, a missionary, and a pastors wife and I found this book a needed read for inspiration and encouragement to do what is my main ministry. Caring for my family does really spill over to others, and I get stuck and need this book to help me stay focused, gain ideas, and know I'm not alone!

Inspirational!

This book was very inspiring! My family loves eating together and we do a lot of what she suggests already. But she gave me new ideas to try. Her recipes were good too.

Good book but…

Really good book, very rich but I wouldn’t listen to it I would physically read it. It has a lot of recipes that you’ll have to go back and write down and it’s very long. I would maybe read a chapter a month or week because it’s a lot of information on one topic. I found myself taking a lot of breaks in between reading it

Great ideas, NO PDFS!!

I really enjoyed the book and it was a good reminder of creating memories and moments with my children. Plenty of things I’ll use to implement in my home. Also, I was really inspired by this book.
The only reason I gave one less star (which I don’t want to do, but seeing if it’ll get attention to add pdfs) was because there is no pdfs on recipes or the index of questions. I think it would be really helpful and great if they could include these. Also, if you do please make sure people who have already purchased can get them too. Please, please, please consider this!!!!:)

This Speaks to My Heart

This story honestly speaks to my heart of what family can and should be. Everything stated in this book brought back memories of simpler and happier times typically around the table. I can't wait to deep dive into the lessons and use them more with my own family. I encourage you to listen to this classic over and over again and restore life back to the family.

Spoke to my heart and spirit!

I loved how down to earth the author is. Her suggestions and wisdom is practical and truly life-giving. So many takeaways, and I plan to purchase the hard copy to more easily follow the recipes she shares. This is one I will read more than once, share with others, and am inspired to lead a book club for it because it impacted me that much.

Absolute gem, a game changer for our family life

I love how Sally draws on her own experiences and gives practical examples and most of all I love that they are rooted in solid principles required for a wholesome family and community. Her adult children are a testament to the way she and Clay raised them and that is very inspiring to me, a young mum. I also love that she is an intelligent and a thinking mum who is not afraid of new and difficult topics that children come across- although she raised her children before social media and the internet, her approach is so relevant to today's context. How she and Clay were open and welcoming of discussions on any topic with their children is incredible, moreover, how they gave them tools to think critically, ask questions, look for solutions, weigh pros and cons and come to conclusions all the while respecting and loving those they might disagree with at the dinner table is exemplary. How Sally welcomes strangers and friends to their table to share a meal and for good conversationa nd how to build relationships with people is also noteworthy. I have learnt so much from this book and I am truly grateful for it.
