This book offers practical suggestions for Sabbath activities to make the day a delight for both adults and children.

Remember those long summer Sabbath afternoons

when the sun seemed nailed to the sky? Your children were soon climbing the walls from inactivity, and you had run out of ideas for things for them to do–things that not only would keep them occupied but were worth doing and were enjoyable besides. Here is the book that will keep such days from happening again.

Born out of a desire to make Sabbaths enjoyable for the author's own family, this 52 Things to Do on the Sabbath offers practical suggestions for things that will involve both adult and child and turn the day into a delight. Each idea can be adapted to fit your needs and situations. Many of the concepts come from successful Adventist families who have experienced the Sabbath as a truly happy family day.

Here's to wonderful Sabbaths!
