5 Ways to Prepare Our Soul for December and a Christmas Gift for You!

  I know, I know. Here I am mentioning Christmas and we've not even carved a turkey yet. But there's a good reason, maybe two. In last week's Tiny House Tuesday, I shared how this would likely be the final 2019 post due to dad's recent surgery. {Thank you for your prayers. He continues to recover well.} Also, despite the desire to create "Silent Night" December days, the real soundtrack...

Tiny House Tuesday // A NEW Front Door Color!

  I tried. Really, I did. If you read Tiny House Tuesday's The Red Door No More, you might remember the giddiness that erupted after painting the front door chartreuse.   For months, the color lived up to its name ⏤ Frolic.   She was a bright pop of color during the day, but when night fell, the color glowed in the dark like a fluorescent beam on steroids. Bless her heart. The...

The Moment Before and After You Hear the Word Cancer

The Moment Before and After You Hear the Word Cancer

"I have a little news to share." I knew dad was taking medicine for a recent issue but it turned out the medicine was no match for the mass occupying most of his bladder. With the biopsy looming two weeks later, I protected my thoughts like a mama bear, refusing to allow "what if's" to sink in and do their damage.   There's a comforting thread of normalcy that hangs in the air between...

Tiny House Tuesday // Steps, Shiplap, and A Hidden Bookcase, Oh My!

  Do you see it? Squinting may be required but the end of our building journey is in sight. Somebody pinch me.   Brian continues to work tirelessly to finish the tiny house because he loves me, but also because he believes God has His own plans for glory through the writing, shared community, and joy that will take place within this 144 square foot space.     Wordpress...

An Introvert’s Journey Toward Biblical Community + Starbucks Giveaway!

Because surely biblical community and coffee go hand-in-hand. For instance, remember the eavesdropping that took place in a North Carolina cafe last October? (If not, you can read about it here.) My being tucked away in a dark corner of a coffee shop isn't unusual, but my willingness to interrupt the conversation of two young women I'd never met? Highly unlikely. If you know me or have...

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