Hello there gorgeous one!
I happen to be away at the Breathe Retreat this weekend, an incredible life-giving & refreshing weekend for mom’s – its amazing!!
While here, I am spending some time thinking about the word HOME and what my dream home is like. Have you taken some time to think about your dream-home? I’m not talking about your physical house, although that may be part of it. Perhaps some of my thoughts could spark some inspiration for you. I encourage you to write down your thoughts on how you can imagine your home being. xoxo
A home that’s heavenly; an atmosphere that instills within them that feeling of “I am worth living this life beautifully”
Beauty & order
Presence & worship
Royal & loved
Important & productive
“Home is a place where all that is good is treasured, stored & protected.” -Sally Clarkson
It’s a safe place. A place where everything good rules and reigns. The atmosphere is always LOVE. Where we are enabled and live from a place of victory. The feelings within each one who lives there fluctuates between every good feeling – loved, loving, joy, peace, inspired, inspiring, beautiful, royal, righteous, compassionate, energized, heard, important, respected, amazed, passionate, full, healthy, whole, lacking no good thing.
The actions of the ones who live here are loving, respectful, kind, generous, thoughtful, serving one another, preferring one another’s needs above our own, finding joy in other’s joy, having our needs richly met by our Heavenly Father.
Thanksgiving is our dialect. Life-giving words is what we speak over one another.
Oh my soul, bless God.
From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
Oh my soul, bless God, don’t forget a single blessing!
He forgives your sins – every one.
He heals your diseases – every one.
He redeems you from hell – saves your life!
He crowns you with love & mercy – a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness – beauty eternal.
He renews your youth – your always young in his presence.
God makes everything come out right; He puts victims back on their feet.
As high as heaven is over the earth, so strong is his love for us. -Psalm 103:1-6
I am loved to the deepest core of my being- instilled into my core is my Heavenly Father’s perfect, unconditional love, his peace, that surpasses all understanding AND His overflowing life-giving JOY. He wraps me in His loving kindness and tender mercies. He satisfies my needs & longings till I am fully satisfied and brought to a place of contentment and joy. He leaves me lacking nothing, I am totally cared for. I am loved. His love drives out any fears or anxieties I might have had. I know that he constantly is thinking of my needs and preparing good things for me every day! He is a good, good daddy! Everyday he holds me to reassure me of his love. I know that I can do all things beautifully and with strength and Grace because He is my helper and His joy is my strength! Thank you God!
Lady wisdom builds a lovely home;
Sir fool comes along and tears it down brick by brick. -Proverbs 14:1

I love preparing for a beautiful tomorrow; cleaning, organizing, planning, praying, etc. Prepping fresh fruit and meals for a healthy tomorrow. I like to start my day and not let my day start me…
Simple and romantic
Full of energy
Relational – a place where you can be heard and process
A place of worship, healing, hope, freedom & love
A place of laughter & joy
We are loved. I am a happy, loving and kind Mommy to Avey, Anna, Kirsten & Lily. I am the best wife for Grant. Our home is beautiful, full of our Heavenly Father’s presence, full of His love, joy, peace & grace. We are full of energy and strength. Everything is getting taken care of. The Holy Spirit is our helper. We are living the glorious life He has willed for us.
My daughters and I are full of beauty and grace and we walk in truth. We absolutely love & adore, admire & respect the man of our home, my handsome husband; their loving, kind & fun daddy. My children & husband are God’s greatest blessings to me! Grant and I are best friends & so in love with each-other. I am his best helper and we are a great team. We work with each-other and not against each-other. We look for the best- not the worst in each-other. I am Grant’s & my children’s #1 cheerleader. We always think and believe the very best about each-other. Mommy & Daddy can’t keep their hands off each-other!!
Jesus’s blessings on our lives is crazy ridiculously good! A scandal! Love, joy, freedom, grace, peace, forgiveness, freshness, a new start, generous, wisdom, favor!! Just to name a few!! He makes life beautiful!! He turns things around for our good, He is trustworthy, safe & soooo so good!! “He is not a rules-enforcer, He is a grace & love dispenser!!” (Author of quote unknown).
Home is being in God’s presence. A place where we are meant to live in Him & Him in us. 2 Corinthians 6:14 Message says… I’ll live in them, move into them; I’ll be their God and they’ll be my people. (The Passion Translations says it this way:) I will make my home in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
