“Putting God Back in the Holidays”

Do you want to celebrate Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Birthdays and other special occasions with purpose but don’t know how to do it?  Have you often wondered if celebrations could be even more meaningful if you put some thought into it?


Bill and Penny Thrasher have found ways to honor God and provide their insights in “Putting God Back in the Holidays.”  Beginning with New Years Day, the Thrashers use scripture and practical helps that can be adapted for all families and all ages.  In addition to Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter, you can also find ways to celebrate birthdays, Martin Luther King Day, Mother’s and Father’s Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Fourth of July, and others.


With the practical helps in the Thrashers’ book, each holiday can honor God in unique and meaningful ways and each year can be different.  New traditions can begin and old traditions can be revitalized.


Bill is a graduate of Auburn University and a graduate professor of Bible and theology at Moody Bible Institute.  He and Penny live in the Chicago area and have three sons.  For more information, visit
