Feeling At Home

It seems to me that women typically experience shame about two things~ their bodies and their homes. … What people are craving isn’t perfection. People aren’t longing to be impressed; they’re longing to feel like they’re home. If you create a space full of love and character and creativity and soul, they’ll take off their […]

Three Years of Home

Published by under Life,Our House,Quotes

Three years ago today, we left our first home and moved to our own home ~ one we designed ourselves, had built by a friend, and which was not complete when we moved in. But we have spent the last three years nurturing, training, and fellowshipping with one another in this home, and we have […]

Let the earth bring forth grass

Published by under Our House

Take a look at the transformation our home had yesterday. What a true blessing!! Psalm 147:7-8 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God, Who covers the heavens with clouds, Who prepares rain for the earth, Who makes grass to grow on the mountains. Genesis 1:11-12 Then God said, […]

Loving a wee layer of snow

Our home looks so lovely covered with a wee layer of snow. Enough to cover up the vestiges of the construction site and lack of yard, but not enough to require plowing yet. It’s the best of both worlds. The boys and I went out to enjoy the frosty world. Okay, let’s rephrase that: Asher […]

Moving In!

Published by under Our House

We’re making progress! We’re in the house! And I have been able to do a good bit of unpacking. The house will continue to be worked on while we live in it, so it’s definitely a work-in-progress, but we are so thankful to have moved before Baby arrives! Now we are settling in a little […]

Twelve more hours

Published by under Our House

In twelve hours, God willing, the U-Haul truck will be sitting in our driveway, ready to be filled with [most of] our earthly possessions! Crazy. Super duper incredibly insanely crazy. Things are slowly falling into place. While we are “moving” tomorrow, we are not sure when we will be living there. It may be a […]

So I am a couple weeks behind on posting anything about our new house… but we are still moving at the end of next week! I know: insane, right? 😉 But a couple of weeks ago I did remember to take some pictures of progress, and this is one (okay, two…) of my favorites. Gabriel […]

Casting Anxieties

1 Peter 5:6-7 “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.” This is something I am praying daily for strength to do. Particularly right now, I have anxieties about the house-building and moving […]

Works in Progress

With (give or take…) six weeks until moving and eight weeks until Baby Nine arrives, we are very occupied with our works in progress. Take a peek below at the two biggest projects of 2011 and the awe-inspiring work God has been doing in, with, and for our family this year. We are humbled and […]

UPDATE on House Building

Published by under Our House

At two months+ into things with our house building adventure, things are starting to take shape. Of course it always feels slower for the home-owners than for those lending their sweat and muscles to the project, since we’re watching from a distance and only checking in once a week or so. But I wanted to […]
