Tiny House on the Hill

Hi! I’m Cathy and I’d love to welcome you to Creative Pauses from the Tiny House on the Hill.

I write, dream, and play with grandkids in my tiny space. It’s also where I invite friends and soon-to-be friends to join me as we create for God’s glory.

In the hurry of our days, it’s easy to overlook moments that invite us to slow down and reflect on the beauty and lovingkindness of our heavenly Father. And yet, it’s often in these pauses where we find ourselves drawing nearer to God.



“God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.” John Piper


For years, I searched for satisfaction in all the wrong places. Divorced twice by the age of twenty-seven with two little boys in tow, it wasn’t until this same twenty-seventh year that I came to know Jesus.

And my life was forever changed.

It’s through this deep satisfaction and love for Christ, that I enjoy helping women draw closer to the Lord by offering fresh, creative ways to connect with Him through His Word, prayer, and community.

So I hope you’ll come on in, pour a cup of your go-to coffee, and find a comfy spot in the tiny house on the hill out back.

You’re always welcome here.

  • A few years ago, we left the main street living behind and moved twenty minutes away from civilization, aka, Starbucks.
  • I have the six cutest, smartest, and most talented grandchildren known to mankind.
  • I’m impartial.
  • From my desk, I see eight mountain ranges. And yes, it’s glorious.
  • My husband, Brian, spent almost every Saturday for a year and a half building my tiny space. Now that’s a whole lot of love!
  • We’ve been married for over thirty years. {Our perfect God in the center of two imperfect people makes all the difference.}
  • I’m an only child and a total introvert who’s learning more about community along the way.
  • I spotted a mama and baby bear on my back deck last summer.
  • I love all things old — houses, books, flowers, teacups, and postcards. Hopefully, this love of old will transform the area around the Tiny House on the Hill with old-timey plants, a white picket fence, and an old iron gate I’ve been saving for the past decade.
