As Mama, we set the tone of our house. So, for week one, we will be talking about our tone. We are going to light a candle (or burn a diffuser!

We are going to talk about some super practical ways we can set a positive atmosphere as well – and of course, we will dig into the heart issues as well!

Decorate Your Heart with Joy This Holiday Season

Welcome to our special series, “Keeping Christ at the Center of Your Holidays.”

Over the next few weeks, you get to enjoy the wonderful words of my amazing friends as they share with you creative and practical ways you can keep Christ in the middle of all of your celebrations.

May we all be bright “lights” this year – sharing hope to those who need it most!

The Secret to Becoming the Homemaker You Want to Be

Whether you are a stay-at-home mom of 12, a single mom, a work-outside-the-home mom, or anything in between, we all have one thing in common.

Simple Hospitality: Why Opening Your Home to Others Matters | The Busy Mom

It was in our home that I watched and learned the value of hospitality while sharing God’s love with those who walked through the door.
I live in the Pacific Northwest with my sweet hubby of 24 years. We have four very fun grown children…two by birth and two by marriage and are loving our first grandbaby girl and two grand-puppies!!
My heart’s desire is to help women with budget-friendly, creative ways to meet and balance the challenges of the “everyday” while nurturing and blessing their husbands, children, friends and community.

How to Start Homemaking … From Scratch • Hilary Bernstein


First of all, before you startanything, please give yourself grace. Know that you’ll be in the process of figuring out what’s best for you. Know that you’ll do some things really well and some things terribly. Don’t worry about trying to do everything perfectly right away (if ever) – because it won’t happen.
