This book is awesome. You can see where Kris has taken the time to really think about how busy a mom's life can be. I've been a Pagan since I was about 11 years old. I want to pass this on to my kids. This book has lots of little ways to get kids involved in the Sabbaths and they aren't hard to do.
I love how Kris breaks down so it isn't overly complex, and goes as far as making sure that a Pagan can have even a quick small ritual- totally understanding that sometimes the only thing you have is 5 minutes.
I can't wait to make some of the oils and washes.
This is a great read for busy witches with households that don't have a huge income or a lot of time. I hope that Kris writes more books like this.
While I’m writing, I like to keep something playing in the background.
