Name Your Fears For What They Are and See What Happens When You Do

Name that Fear

I've never been a fan of anything that slithers. Having lived in the burbs for most of my life where the outdoors consisted of crumbling asphalt and the occasional stray cat, I wasn't sure what country life would bring. I know what it brought our first night⏤a colorful snake coiled up next to the steps in our garage. That went over well. (But the swarm of honey bees that swept across our...

Tiny House Tuesday // The Tarp of It All

Funny how hurricanes force you to re-think everything. We were one sheet of underlayment away from having the base of the roof covered before we left for our beach vacation. Apparently, Hurricane Florence decided to follow us home. Before we knew it, forecasters were predicting sustained winds up to 50 mph and possibly 12" of rain. This could be the first test of the Tiny House on the Hill's...

Welcome to the Tiny House on the Hill // Because Mustard Seed Moments Matter

I never saw it coming⏤this dream becoming a reality. Only months ago, while enjoying breakfast with dad at Panera, I shared a story from the internet of a teenager who built his own tiny house. My excitement must've been contagious because he inspired me to get started on my own tiny space. The best part was his willingness to come help whenever possible. And then there was my hubby, who...

Tiny House Tuesday // Framed Glory {& An Exciting Announcement!}

There it was in all its glory. One moment, I'm handing Brian tools and the next, I catch sight of the glorious sky framed for a private viewing.     Working on the tiny house this summer has offered moments of both victory and defeat. At times, it's easy to become bombarded by the details of the build. A break is needed and mine is taken in the doorway-to-be because mountain breezes...

How Drawing a Line Down the Center of a Page Can Change Everything

  Ice cream has always been my downfall. Not just any ice cream, mind you. It must include sweet morsels of cookie dough, thin mints, or chocolate chips⏤sprinkles, syrups, or anything fruity are simply not invited to the party. Recently, while wiping minty green deliciousness from around my lips, the words Where is your self-control? rudely interrupted the moment. The words stunned me...

Tiny House Tuesday // Cut it Out!

  The windows, that is.   I couldn't imagine a more exciting moment on our tiny house journey than when the walls were raised. But I was wrong. Seeing "windows" punch through solid walls brought out the inner cheerleader in me (and I do mean inner!) I shouted as if it were the last lap of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s career. Oh, you didn't know I was a closet NASCAR fan? I watch it from my...

3 Action Steps + A Prayer For Those Days When Disappointment Strikes

Since returning from the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, my days have had more twists and turns than Disney World's Thunder Mountain.   On my ride home from the conference, I could barely see the ground for all the clouds. Two weeks later, I was sniffing dirt.   Two weeks after that, I was back to downing coffee, tweaking chapters and polishing an introduction,...

Tiny House Tuesday // The Walls We Build

  The tiny house sat flat on the hill. It sat this way for a few months. We didn't want to rush the foundation and who could forget the tropical monsoons that blew through our area in May?   But then came June and with it, the first wall. With one hefty hoist, the tiny house began to take shape in all of its 9' x 16' glory.   Then came the second wall and with it, the first...
