For the last few decades, Americans have been losing their understanding of our history and heritage. One of the symptoms of this problem is the fact that we no longer realize the signifigance of our national holidays. When Uncle Rick was a boy in school, everybody knew that Thanksgiving was a time of giving thanks to God, as the Pilgrims did in colonial days. Everybody visited the cemeteries on Memorial Day, honoring those who died in war to keep us free and remembering their departed loved ones.
But most schools don't teach the truth about our holidays any more, so parents must be sure their children learn at home. Now, Uncle Rick has written his Holiday Book for parents and kids to read together. He hopes you enjoy it as your family rediscovers our Christian and patriotic heritage.
Uncle Rick's Holiday Book is a "coffee-table"-worthy book! It lays out the history and significance of ten different holidays as well as includes a section sharing holiday-themed ideas, recipes and additional resources. The pages are colorful and captivating especially for younger children. I'm sure my child will remember the photographs on these pages when he is an adult as much as I remember the pages from that special book that my mom read to me!
Uncle Rick removes all the holiday consumerism and shares the facts and intent surrounding each holiday while giving great honor to God and the Christian principles that our Nation was founded on.
We have this book on display in our home and I've enjoyed watching guests of all ages nonchalantly pick up this book and end up engrossed in one of the holiday stories! They usually light up with excitement because they learned something new or close the book with appreciation for the author as he preserves the truth of these holidays.
We can't wait to purchase more of these books to give away as gifts!
Rick and Marilyn Boyer have collected a needed narrative for our children and grandchildren in a day when history has been rewritten to serve politics and popular culture. Our nation's lust for entertainment and pleasure has gutted our patriotic and memorial celebrations of their historic significance. We must brilliantly and unapologetically resurrect for our families the profound price of their freedoms, remembered in our civic holidays.
Even more sadly, Christmas and Easter are irrelevant as religious celebrations in our secular culture. We must herald the beauty and eternal value of the Incarnation, and the life, death and resurrection of Christ in God's redemptive plan. While these are themes to celebrate throughout the year, it is a joy and privilege to take time from our regular schedules to celebrate the most significant interventions of the King of Heaven into a broken and fallen world. "Uncle Rick's Holiday Book" does just that! ~Mrs. Margy Tripp of Shepherding the Heart Ministries, pastor's wife, author, conference speaker, educator
