Tiny House Tuesday // When Two Littles Love a Little Loft

Tiny House Play Loft

The littles love their tiny loft, and maybe the reading nook too. When Sarah, my daughter-in-law, created these signs last summer I never imagined it would be over a year before two of our six grandchildren had a place to hold them up. Though the nook and loft are not completely finished, the end is finally in sight and as happy as I am, Brian is even happier.   The Reading Nook  ...

On Tiny Houses and Writing Books // Guest Post by Kim Harms & Giveaway!

  I remember the first time I "met" Kim Harms. I'd read her posts on Inspire a Fire and was an instant fan. So when she left a comment on one of my Inspire posts, I was tickled pink, and truly touched. Her words came at a crucial point in my writing life. Kim didn't know this, but God did. Over the years, our friendship has grown, as has my respect. Welcome to the Tiny House on the Hill....

65 Specific Ways to Spot God’s Gifts this Fall + Moleskine Giveaway

God's gifts surround us at every turn, but gratitude begins when we take notice.   September is an in-between kind of month. You know, the month that loosens its grip on summer with one arm and stretches to meet fall with the other. Depending on where you live, it's a toss-up deciding whether to stow away summer shorts or pull down the oversized, fluffy sweaters from the attic. This...

Tiny House Tuesday // Our Choice Will Floor You

  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

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...

Instagram post 2129257355493536571_230665747 If this mug could talk it might boast that it was the first mug to be created for the Tiny House on the Hill.
⠀⠀
Back then, in the summer of 2018, I named my tiny-space-to-be the “Lil Red Writing House”. Catchy, right?
⠀⠀
The problem, however, was that while I love the color red in velvet cake and ripe cherries, I didn’t want a red tiny house, a red front door, or red accents.
⠀⠀
But I liked the catchy title. ⠀⠀
So I kept buying red props in hopes of swaying the heart...until I finally realized I had to choose between what sounded catchy and what I really loved, and that was the freedom to paint my tiny front door a different color (and maybe re-paint? 🙄).
⠀⠀
Releasing what I liked in order to make room for what I loved sparked joy and creativity in lovely and unexpected ways.💕
⠀⠀
So, have you ever released something you like in order to make room for what you love?
