Martin & Sylvia: Day of Rest

Martin & Sylvia: Day of Rest

Martin and Sylvia’s Momma and Daddy both work and share the responsibilities of keeping a home. They like the balance between home and work, but they do regularly feel tired, overwhelmed, and too busy with all the details of their day-to-day life. When Momma’s assistant Amy gives her a book that could “benefit the whole family,” she is surprised and delighted that it’s all about the importance and practice of a full "Day of Rest." And thus begins a year-long project to build the perfect day of rest for their family.
