Proverbs 24:3-4


If you desire a home that is beautiful and welcoming but also provides a haven of rest and a refuge from the storms of life, you have come to the right place!

I'm so glad you found this little space in the middle of the whole world wide web!

I'm here to offer encouragement that will empower you to build your heart and home by God's design. God is the master designer and creator and the principles and elements of good design are His original idea! 

I believe the elements and principles of interior design parallel God's design for your heart! Discovering and implementing these elements and principles simultaneously is the key to loving your home, caring for those who live with you, finding contentment in life, and sharing what you have found with others. 

You will find inspirational messages for your heart, practical decorating ideas and guidelines to implement in your home, helpful ideas for balance in life, and encouraging ways to enjoy the art of showing hospitality. There will also be holiday ideas, recipes to try, and a monthly ministry challenge to participate in.

My prayer for you is that you will find contentment and joy as you experience life by God's design. 

Come on in, make yourself at home, and take a look around! I look forward to getting to know you and becoming friends. I hope you will visit often!

I'd love to hear from you...
