It’s been a long time coming! This project started in my head who-knows-how-long-ago and in actuality back in the summer. But life and family meant that the process would be longer and slower than I had hoped. However, I can now happily say that this labor of love is officially finished and ready to share! Here's the official description:
If spending quality time together as a family—without it costing a fortune—is your desire, look no further. MORE THAN A MOVIE is a collection of 50 ideas for fun and frugal family nights that don't involve turning on the T.V. Each of the four sections—Food, Fun, Thinking of Others, and Out & About—will inspire you with short chapters listing easy-to-gather materials and a simple how-to. Most activities require very little preparation and are all easy on the wallet. Janet Phillips—the author and a happy mother of five—believes that family and fun shouldn't cost a fortune. As you look at her creative ideas, you'll be amazed to see how cheap and simple a fun-filled family night can be. All you really need is a willing heart and the desire to enjoy a fun evening with the people you love most.
I am so thankful for so many people who cheered me on and supported me in this endeavor. There is no way I could have done this alone. My family and close friends have helped me find a place for my heart to be shared with others. I am so incredibly grateful.
You can learn more about the book RIGHT HERE, including how to purchase a copy for Kindle, for Nook, and as a .pdf file (for viewing on the computer, for printing, or for reading on most eReaders). You can also download a free chapter!
If you think this is something that your friends or family would enjoy, I would love if you could share the information with others. An email, a blog post, a post on Facebook—all of these things go a long way in "getting the word out."
