What do indoor picnics and funny face contests have to do with loving Jesus? More than you realize! As a mom in the throes of parenting, Courtney DeFeo believes that instilling virtues in children starts with laughter, not lecture. That perspective propelled her to create this idea-packed book, in which she offers motivating reflections, real-life stories, and a sandbox full of inventive ways to help you turn your kids’ hearts toward God. Each chapter focuses on one virtue that is key for developing your child’s character. Along with insights into how this virtue plays out in the nitty-gritty of life, Courtney includes a memory verse, activity ideas, and discussion questions to reinforce that virtue throughout the month. Here you’ll find a full year of ways to draw your children closer to God through delightful antics like Family Olympics, One Fancy Feast, and Light ’Em Up. In This House, We Will Giggle shows you how to capture the hearts of your children through fun—so that they experience the goodness of Christ, the joy of following Him, and the difference they can make in the lives of others. (Water balloons not included!)

Jack and Brenda Stevens found the perfect home to raise their family in, but were unaware of the homes past. Being a young couple with two children and big dreams, they could care less if the house had a past or not. The only thing on their mind was raising a family in this beautiful Victorian home. The house had a strange odor, but they just thought it was because the house was old. Jack's wife thought once they moved in, and did some renovations, the odor would diminish. She was dead wrong. This was one odor that wouldn't be leaving, even if the place burnt to the ground. From day one things started happening, like objects being moved, faint screams that seemed to be coming from within the walls, noises from the floorboards of the house. Weeks went by and nothing changed. The family started getting accustomed to the noises and shrugged it off as just the house settling and the fact that it's a very old house. Terror was about to come down on this family like a hurricane. One night when the children were sleeping, a voice called out from within the walls of their bedroom and said in an eerie voice, "Let us out! It's cold in here. Let us out!!! Let us out!!! The children ran to their parent’s room screaming, saying "There's something in the walls in our room?" Their father said "You must have had a nightmare. Go back to bed. I'm really tired." "We're not going back in that bedroom, said the frightened children. "Ok! I'll check it out and if I don't find anything, then please go back to bed," said their frustrated father. Their father turned the children's bedroom light on and looked around the room, but heard nothing and saw nothing. The two children stood right next to their father holding onto his arm as though he was taking them through a haunted house. He reassured the children that there were no spooks in their room. The children climbed back into bed and pulled the covers over their heads and prayed for daylight. Moments later the children started screaming and their father got out of bed and stormed into their room and flicked the light switch on and was shocked at what was unfolding before his very eyes.

Why do we care so much about our homes? When did this societal phenomenon begin? Entire stores and cable channels are dedicated to the remodeling of one's home-proof that our homes are more than just walls, windows, and floors. Our homes exemplify who we are. They are an extension of us. We all want our homes to be our havens, our nests-our nerve centers for life. We look to our homes to represent our emotions, our passions, our travels, our families, and our careers. No longer are our dwellings a protection from the elements or a simple place to cook a meal. We wear our homes like we wear haute couture, and put them on display for all to see. Learning to design your home in a meaningful way and understanding "why" you adore certain colors, styles, and decor is more important than knowing where to place furniture in a room. Understanding the principles that create ambiance, feeling, and mood in your home are key to creating your ideal haven. Start with the "why" rather than the "how" when remodeling and your home will become your haven-and you will experience more joy, fulfillment, and the contentment you seek.

A lot can happen in six centuries. Experience the sadness, confusion, uncertainty, conflict, and desperation of the Pelliccia as they suffer through plague, three wars, the Renaissance, murder, untimely deaths, economic depression, eventually some comfort and joy. During their journey from Carrara, Tuscany (Italy), to Corsica (France), Puerto Rico, and eventually to the United States, they had seen and experienced the full range of human experience. As they build a new life for their children and their children's children, the family creates the roots of a hard-earned family fortune in Puerto Rico coffee plantations-only to lose it. Anxious but not broken, they set their sights on immigration to the United States. Once there, the family suffers profound hardship during the Great Depression. The culture shock, financial hardships, and generation gaps all play roles in the family's successes and failures. As some of the older generation crumbles under the stresses of life in a new world, their children find joy and comfort in the rich soil of American opportunity and possibility. But through it all, one thing remained a constant: the love of family. In this detailed, narrative family history, author John Urrutia's novel style invites you into the many challenges and triumphs of family.
