Transforming Through Trials – Part 6

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:06+00:00 March 25th, 2016|Inspiration|

In this series of posts I've been discussing the concept of transforming through a struggle; a trial. But the ultimate trial of all time happened over 2,000 years ago, when Jesus was arrested, tried, tortured, and crucified. Talk about an unfair trial; we can't even wrap our minds around it. I stumbled upon the perfect [...]

Transforming Through Trials – Part 5

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:07+00:00 March 23rd, 2016|Inspiration|

The post below is what I wrote on my personal blog right before Easter last year. It was around the time that I shared my story and experience with anxiety, and this post came from a place of deep gratefulness in my heart to the Lord. One year later, I can honestly say that I [...]

Transforming Through Trials – Part 4

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:07+00:00 March 21st, 2016|Inspiration|

I strongly believe that the Bible becomes more precious and more real when you have walked through a trial, a difficult time, or a struggle. Jesus becomes more dear; Someone you can't imagine walking without. As I was reading my Bible recently, I came across Hezekiah's prayer of praise to the Lord (after the Lord [...]

Transforming Through Trials – Part 3

To read Part 1, click here. To read Part 2, click here.  Once I retraced my steps through anxiety and pinpointed where certain thought patterns and traps began, I was able to move into "application" with that knowledge. Just like in Scripture where it says "Be doers of the Word, not hearers only" (James 1:22), [...]

Transforming Through Trials – Part 2

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:07+00:00 March 16th, 2016|Inspiration|

When I gave birth to my youngest little one in May of 2013, it was a very traumatic experience emotionally. It was a failed VBAC, and it affected me in a huge way. However, I had no idea how God would use that as a catalyst for a complete change in my life. Because I [...]

She is happily married to her wonderful husband Kurt, and they have 3 young, precious children: Evy, Liam and Lynley. She has been fascinated with decorating, design and architecture from the age of 9, and studied interior [...]

Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:17+00:00 November 7th, 2015|Blog|

  This is is the easiest and quickest casserole you'll find - and it's DELICIOUS! This has become my "go-to" anytime I'm taking a meal to someone, or if we just need something easy and yummy. Sometimes we get into the mindset that when we're taking a meal, everything needs to be perfect and gourmet. [...]

Finding Your Decorating Style

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:18+00:00 October 31st, 2015|Blog|

Interior Inspirations is all about the interiors of your home and what it means to be a homemaker - but the most important thing we focus on is the HEART behind all of it! Decorating, entertaining, and all of those sorts of things are worthless if our hearts aren't pointed towards Christ and how we can [...]

Family Bible Time Complete Series

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:23+00:00 July 12th, 2015|Blog|

I just recently posted our final Family Bible Time video for this series, and I've been so blessed in sharing with you! Family Bible Time doesn't have to be elaborate (in fact, it really shouldn't be!). All you need is a short time to gather and a willingness to point your children to Christ. That's [...]

Family Bible Time Series, Part 4

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:25+00:00 June 2nd, 2015|Blog| Hi everyone! Long time no posts/videos, but I'm happy to be back in the swing of things! May is just as crazy as December (in my opinion), and everyone is shifting into summer mode. I wanted to continue my Family Bible Time series with Part 4, which focuses on the Scripture memory and [...]

Little Traditions: It Starts with Cinnamon Toast!

By | 2018-03-20T01:01:21+00:00 March 10th, 2015|Blog|

I wouldn't classify myself as a cook. At all. I would probably put myself more in the "follows a recipe and doesn't want to linger in the kitchen" category. I have friends that love to bake; they find it really soothing to be mixing and putting things in the oven. I also have friends [...]

Silent Witness: The Language of Your Home

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:36+00:00 February 23rd, 2015|Blog|

My grandfather recently gave me a book that a friend of his authored called Silent Witness: The Language of Your Home. It was written by interior designer Georg Andersen, and it's now one of my very favorite books! The book was written in 1999, so the styling and decorating is older and definitely not everyone's taste, [...]

Whispering with Biscuits and Candles

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:37+00:00 February 16th, 2015|Blog|

Our current focus at Interior Inspirations is "A Home That Whispers I Love You." When I think of "whisper," I think of something gentle, soft, and subtle. In this season of raising three young children, it's easy to get overwhelmed with the basic tasks of keeping a home, much less trying to think of creative [...]

Home: What Makes the Difference?

By | 2017-09-26T02:50:38+00:00 February 14th, 2015|Blog|

Hi, everyone! When asked to write about the concept of home, my mind has gone in a million directions. While that’s nothing new for me (multitasking mother of three, what can I say?), I have to admit I’ve struggled to figure out a way to narrow down my thoughts on this one. Admittedly, I’ve been [...]
