Lifeways originated amongst groups of women, and some men, who were seeking a renewing spirit for family life. They strove to create new visions of the tasks of parents, a new 'eye' for the meaning of 'home' as a place which supports families in their 'life-ways'. Lifeways is a resource book for home making.
