Building strong homes
It’s more than a tagline. It’s my passion. From the time I was a little girl I dreamed of creating beautiful and well-functioning spaces for families to live in. When I graduated college, I made that dream a reality by going to work for an architectural firm.
Shortly thereafter, I married and eventually became a mom. My passion grew from designing and drawing houses to building a strong spiritual home for my family. I struggled in the day-to-day to know what I needed to do to be a godly wife and mother. So, I began reading and studying the Bible on my own. Some days went well, and I felt good about my spiritual progress. But there were many days I fell to my knees begging God to help me navigate difficult—or even ordinary—situations. I had no idea this would be so hard.
As I learned how to build the foundation of our spiritual home, I finally began to share my questions and fears with other godly women. When I realized they were just like me, trying to make it through each day without ruining their kids or tearing down their marriages, I no longer felt alone. Now that I’ve been married 35 years and my children are young adults who have their own lives, I want to give back and encourage others in their journey. I hope my experience, blog stories and podcast interviews will help lift you out of the trenches and onto a firm foundation.
This site is a melding of the two things I’m most passionate about: designing and drawing physical houses that work well for your family and sharing stories of encouragement and inspiration to help you build the godly home you’ve always dreamed of.
My favorite place to be is—you guessed it—at home with family and friends, hosting cookouts or bonfires, or just relaxing.
I’d love to hear your story!
