The main audience for this book is parents who consider themselves spiritual, but are not necessarily religiously affiliated. However, because the book is organized around general spiritual themes that are valued in many religions, I feel there is also a lot of material here that any parent could draw from, including religiously affiliated ones (and atheist/agnostic parents as well, for that matter.) The key is selecting approaches that work for you and your family, and the author stresses this continually - that a spiritually conscious family doesn't look one way or talk one way.
The book is organized around two main sections - Vehicles and Themes. The Vehicles are ideas for places, times and ways to integrate spiritual themes into your daily life as a family. Examples are family discussions, family rituals, vision boards, role play, art projects, or, my personal favorite 'make-her-day moments'. Some are formal and some are more casual. The Themes are values or topics that you can explore with your family, such as connectedness, authenticity, gratitude, cause/effect/free Will, mindfulness and more.
The vehicles and themes provide a framework for you to consider how best to integrate spirituality into your family life. I lean more towards a very unstructured approach - modeling being front and center - and I also have read a lot of 'mindful parenting' type books, so I initially wasn't sure how much I would get out of this one.Read more ›
I had considered myself a spiritual parent, but having read the book, I found more tools that I could use to help align myself in such a way that would have an impact on my son too. I am and will continue to refer to it again and again to touch on the bits of wisdom dotted all over in the book as I too "grow" with my son.
I recommend this book so highly to all, especially as a parent myself. It is a very easy read, and so thoroughly enjoyable and definitely a book I can relate to with regards to parenting. Thank you Annie, for following your soul wisdom and creating this for the parents of the world. Together we create this world, soul to soul, one by one.
For those looking to stay in touch with their spiritual side, Burnside has some helpful ways to keep us (and our families) on track. Along with several chapters on spiritual themes for family discussions, her book offers a list of 22 ways to access the divine and "integrate spirituality into your family's daily life" including passages on active meditation, conscious breathing and nature. ~Tom Rapsas, Author Life Tweets: Inspirational & Spiritual Insights That Can Change Your Life.
