One of the best parts of being a blogger and reader is the ability to find and read books that call to me. I am very pleased to be involved with Netgalley as a professional reader. One of the perks of being a member of Netgalley is that I can chose the books that call to me in hopes that I will be approved to read them. The Magickal Family by Monica Crosson, was a book that called to me. I loved the cover but I also love the family approach to learning and living a Pagan life. I did a happy dance when I got the email that I was approved to read it and on Sunday I sat down "familiar" Squirrel the cat and settled in for a wonderful afternoon read.
The Magickal Family had me hooked from page one. I laughed, almost cried and tried to soak in every detail and practical suggestion in this book that really is a guide to incorporating simple things into your family's daily life to enhance it. There were special recommendations as and advice on everything from walking in nature, to setting up a fairy garden, recipes and the who, how and why of Pagan living. I was about three pages in when I knew this was a book I was going to have to own and hold in my hands. A book I could count on as a reference, and a guide that would remind of the simple things in life and the important things too. Not to mention some great tea recipes and gardening ideas! This was most definitely a Magickal book! This one is out October 8th and I can not wait to have it in my hands and on my shelf.
The Magickal Family is a real-life guide for those who want to practice magick and simplicity but need a little nudge to break out of the work-a-day world. Filled with tips, ideas, and projects to bring you and your family closer to nature and to celebrate the Goddess, this book shows how to be true to your magickal self while raising little witchlings and creating a life you're proud of.
Discover a load of validation, encouragement, and techniques for thriving in the modern world with gardening, kitchen witchery, tinctures and herbal remedies, crafts, recipes, reusing and recycling, and working with the wheel of the year.
