how great, how cheap! this is a wonderful book!
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 to a handful of friends who listened to me share my ideas and encouraged me along the way. Whether specific to this book or just to life in general, a project like this wouldn’t have happened without the love and support of some key people: Ruth Ann, Abigail, Erika, Lindy, Steph, Katie, Stacy, Sally, and Shelley. Whether you know it or not, each of you played a part in this book coming together. I am forever grateful. God keeps reminding me that I need people. You are proof that this is true.
