Tiny House Tuesday // Our Choice Will Floor You

Tiny House Tuesday

  Okay, maybe our choice of flooring isn't that surprising but it surprised me. For over a year, I read magazines and pinned every floor that caught my eye, but this one never made it to the board. It all began on a whim when we decided to "run in" to Liquid Lumbidators, as I call it, just to see what they had to offer. (This is like stopping by the Humane Society when you're allergic to...

Need Direction? Gather Co-Listeners + A Next Right Thing Giveaway!

"Gather Co-Listeners" is one of my favorite chapters in Emily P. Freeman's latest book, The Next Right Thing. In it, Emily shares how, in the midst of transition and all the questions that came with it, she and her husband invited a few trusted friends in different stages of life to simply listen to their words and see what they had to say. Although they weren't asking for advice, they were...

Tiny House Tuesday // A Shield for All Seasons

  I didn't want insulation used in the tiny ceilings. It cost more in both time and money, and studios shown on Pinterest didn't use it (hello, white-washed beams). Need I say more? *wink* But my husband, being the wise steward that he is, insisted. The hours spent writing + the depth to which I detest feeling hot = a quickly depleted electricity budget, so Brian dressed in his Oompa...

Deepen Your Prayer Life with On Bended Knee by Crickett Keeth (Win a Copy!)

You know how it feels to meet someone for the first time but instead of the awkward pause, you settle in quickly, like they're a long lost friend? Crickett Keeth is one of those people for me. We first "met" on the Facebook Blue Ridge Bible Study Writers page several years ago. From the get-go, I think we both knew we'd discovered a peep for life. We've prayed for each other and cheered one...

Tiny House Tuesday // Finding Ideas in a Magazine + Starbucks Giveaway

With the interior work just around the tiny bend, my abstract ideas need to harden like concrete. For instance, there will be the eight-foot-long desk but we've not yet decided on the materials. There will be walls, but will they be planked or smooth? And the floors, will they be wood of a lighter or darker tone? These are just a few of the questions tapping on my brain when I'm all tapped...

How God Answered My Prayers Through a Man Named Finis

He wasn't where he was supposed to be on the first night of the conference. Someone noticed an older man walking in a room that was off limits until it was officially opened by faculty. A few people rescued him with the same fervor one might have when rescuing sailors at sea. Writer's conferences take sign-ups seriously, after all. *wink* The man shuffled out of the room and stood nearby like...

Tiny House Tuesday // A Red Door No More

Sometimes things don't turn out as expected. One morning on the way to our now second home, Lowes, I asked, “Can we brainstorm some ideas for a tiny house name?” (Here in the South we name everything—RVs, cars, property, and tiny houses. It gives us the opportunity to feel all warm and fuzzy about things that are anything but.) It didn’t take long for Brian to blurt out “Lil’ Red Writing...

Why I Created The Tiny Prayer Garden E-Book

Dirt beneath the nails is a badge of honor in my family. Back in the '40s, my great-grandmother, Fannie Reece, was known for her dinner plate-sized dahlias. She lived in a mill town where houses circled the block. Behind the houses was a field where her flowers grew. From Grandmother Reece’s back stoop, the top of the field was quite steep, accessible only by large field stones carved into...

Tiny House Tuesday // Goodbye Exterior, Hello Interior!

He tried to warn me. Over a year ago, while stringing stakes and leveling blocks, Brian dropped this little love bomb: You won't believe how many things we'll need to do before this tiny house is finished. It's going to be a long process, possibly a year. Bless his heart, he didn’t know how quickly southern girls could make things happen when they put their mind to it. Turns out, however, it...

I love its heft, the way it sinks like sand in my palm, making itself right at home, just as it once did in my grandmother’s.

Instagram post 2111762214872907509_230665747 Oh yes! It’s my new 2020 day planner, and this office supplies geek couldn’t be happier. ☺️
⠀⠀
Being a planner at heart, my calendars — the colors, images, and even the feel — matters. This one, a #barnesandnoble exclusive, checks all the boxes.
⠀⠀
But before the first day unfolds, I will write this verse on the front page:
⠀⠀
“We make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9
⠀⠀
I wouldn’t want it any other way because I learned the hard way that there is no better, more loving way, than His.
