 Our Description

The second in a series of Bible studies based on Proverbs 31, Graced and Gifted offers tools to help you create a home that will be a place of beauty and peace where the needs of your loved ones are met. Applying Sacred Scripture, Church teaching and pastoral wisdom, Kimberly Hahn helps you explore:
  • Time management
  • The art of homemaking, from creating a pleasant environment to clutter management
  • Food preparation; making meals a time of communion
  • Cultivating a garden
  • The importance of housework

Graced and Gifted also includes chapters on each of the sacraments as they relate to the tasks of homemaking. Discussion questions help you apply the material to your own life and make the book a valuable resource for small group discussion. Graced and Gifted is also available on DVDs featuring a lively presentation of the material by the author.
