Make your table a delightful, lifegiving space where your family and friends long to be―where they will find rest, renewal, inspiration, and a loving welcome.
When Sally Clarkson sets a table in her home, it’s more than just a place and a time to eat and run. It’s an opportunity to gather as family and friends to connect and commune, to open children’s hearts to lively discussions that will feed their faith, and to enjoy the beauty and bounty of God’s creation.
In The Lifegiving Table, bestselling author Sally Clarkson shares her family stories of table talk and faith-shaped conversations, as well as her favorite recipes and practical ideas, all drawn from over thirty years of parenting and ministry. You’ll discover why the table is a place of belonging and anticipation where we break bread together to receive both food and faith for our lives, and where we open our hearts to savor the love of God. You’ll also find a feast of ways to grow in faith and draw closer to the people you love around the table you set in your home.
From the flap (HC edition):
Days before converging on our home for a family gathering this summer, both of our sons called me.
“Mama, I can hardly wait to get there.”
“What is your favorite expectation about coming home?” I asked each of them.
Both boys answered with almost the same words, even though they were now separated by two thousand miles! “It is the feasting every night around the table with delicious home-cooked food, being each other’s best friends, talking about every possible subject and sharing in each other’s lives . . . that is my favorite part. I need my people. I want a place to belong.”
It’s no accident that they feel this way. Creating a lifegiving table in their home was a priority for Sally and Clay Clarkson from the very beginning, and they put effort and intention into making it happen.
In The Lifegiving Table, join Sally as she shares the lessons she and her family cultivated carefully through years of sitting down together; cooking, baking, and preparing meals; and practicing the disciplines of teaching manners and fostering conversation.
You’ll discover the legacy of creating a lifegiving table in your own home, as you knit your hearts together to form tight bonds that will not easily be broken.

Sally shows us, through a beautiful balance of anecdotes, practical advice, theological application, and (of course) recipes, how to incorporate lifegiving elements into our daily rhythms around the table. I can't wait to dig deeper and begin to apply her wonderful suggestions. As a mom of three little boys, I know that the table is definitely a place where I have their attention; three times a day (plus snacks), I can pour truth into their little hearts and have them listen--because they're chewing and can't drown me out! ;)
After all, Jesus was the bread of life, the living water; he feasted with his disciples, and with sinners just like us. He calls us to His table, and fills us up with his Truth.
