What I Have

raw art letter press:: the lord is my shepherd

I thought it would be fitting to wrap up these 31 days of Home. On Purpose with a reminder from the boy who painted on the outside of his house.  Fair warning, it’s about to get Jesusy up in these parts and this will stop you in your cute tracks: Remember that?  I contacted one […]

minimalliving I know, it’s not really all we need. At all.  But it’s a big part of what most of us could use. Less stuff, less debt, less choices*, less accessibility, less overwhelm, less automatic ‘yeses’ because we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings or we’ve forgotten to turn our default from yes to I’ll […]

What’s On Your List?


Is home just another place where there are unmet expectations, lists, work and exhaustion?  What does being home purposefully really mean? How about a little flashback 10 years?  If you love country music then you probably loved this song from 2002.  I still love it and turn it up every time it comes on the […]
