Mid Century Modern Desk Set from Sewing Desk

You know I love a good challenge, right? It seems I often undertake the most hot mess of projects at times and find myself scratching my head as to the why. ahem. Well, today is one of those days, and I know why. Meet this dilapidated sewing desk that is going to become a Mid Century Modern desk set with a cause.

Home is the Key ~ Helping Others Find Home

It is often we can take the most important things to us for granted. Take for instance that I wake up in a soft, cozy bed with my loves around me in my HOME. In the morning, I get out of bed while it’s still dark, and I pause to listen at each door. Hearing their breathing sends my heart soaring, and I say a small prayer of thanks. It’s at those times I am truly thankful for my family just being there, and for a place for us to dwell. There is no doubt, a home is the key. Unfortunately, in reality not everyone is afforded such a peaceful feeling as they might be struggling from day to day.

Christmas Finding Home Celebration

At this time of year there is much focus on the giving of gifts. It’s a wonderful, fuzzy feeling you get when you see someone you care about opens a gift you put time or thought into. However, I honestly, wish people would be in this mindset all year through, don’t you? Just think of what a better world it would be if we did. Today, we’re having a Christmas Finding Home celebration to keep that spirit alive.

God’s Grace ~ Sharing from the Heart

How often do you find yourself in a position to do an amazing thing for someone else? Maybe it’s just sharing a meal, or carrying groceries, or even taking care of a bill for someone. Whether BIG or small, all you do to showΒ  love to someone else really matters. Countless times I’ve been the recipient of someone else making time for me. It doesn’t go unnoticed and I yearn to pay it forward and go as BIG as I can. Daring to be different and showing love pays back tenfold. I’m sharing from the heart today of God’s grace in recent days.

Finding Home Episode 2 ~ Two New Chapters

A month has flown by since my family and I launched our Finding Home program and we couldn’t be more excited to be back at it with two new chapters. In my last post about this program, I shared we did a triple gift delivery of three furniture pieces to three different deserving families. This time, I’m not only sharing the happy ending of two more of those three stories, but inviting you to the beginning of Finding Home Episode 2.
