Welcome! I’m Vanessa and I’m so thrilled that you’ve stopped by.
I believe that there is a beautiful, intricate connection between our hearts and our homes. And I am passionate about helping you discover how you can have more peace in both.
When you are apart of our community here, you will not only find simple, affordable ideas for your home but I hope that you will also be blessed with encouragement for your heart.
In a world that has become increasingly more out of control, what if our homes could be havens of peace? I believe that is what we all want for ourselves and our families and my desire is that, while you are here, you will be encouraged to take steps towards that goal.
I write and create from my home in the beautiful Willamette Valley area of Oregon which I share with my husband of 20 years and our two children. I take my coffee very seriously and while I don’t wear a lot of flannel I have definitely embraced being an Oregonian. As a family, we love to hike and bike and enjoy this incredible state but on Friday nights you’ll usually find us at home eating pizza around the coffee table in the family room while we watch a movie together.
I was so honored to co-author my first book ‘Life in Season: Celebrating the Moments that Fill Your Heart and Home‘ with my sister Heather.
Some of you may remember that she also contributed to this website for many years. Now, that we’ve gone from ‘we’ to just ‘me’, I’m turning the page and feel so excited to see where God is going to take us as we all continue to do life here together.
I feel so grateful that I have the opportunity to travel the country speaking to and connecting with women who are longing to invite more peace into their lives. If you would be interested in having me come to one of your events, please contact me at email@example.com
