Homemaking in Heaven

Homemaking in Heaven

Do you ever underestimate how easy it is to get comfortable? We do. As humans, in whatever field we live in (mission or lay), our natural bent is to nestle down with an identity based on our personal situation. As Christians, we are instructed from the Word of God to BUILD our life on the kingdom of God! That life is not based off of a place, location or job in this world. It’s based on a person. Jesus. We pray that this blog further encourages your life with Christ to be what leads your identity in whatever kingdom building we do here on earth.

Thanks so much for visiting our blog! We pray that as we seek to use the missional and mundane parts of our life to glorify God, you would also be pressed to use each moment purposefully.

Our desire comes out of two typical lives who have both worked overseas doing missions and also lived the typical American life of working 9-5 and being a stay at home mom. We hope you are pressed to Jesus from both experiences, because both are significant in light of Christ!

This short film was made to capture our heart for Jesus in the midst of our wedding day. May you see Him in the beauty.

You may come from the mentality that modern America would say about women’s rights or how submission is a suppression of women. There… Read more

    My hope is that this post will encourage you sisters in knowing the great treasure it is to take on another’s pain.

    It felt that as fast as my steps went, my heart was beating faster. Scanning the gymnasium full of wedding guests over and over, looking inside and outside going in circles, I couldn’t find my 2 year old anywhere. I was able to keep my emotions paused while I searched for her at first, but… Read more

    April 20, 2021 by

    There was a time while Alex and I lived in India that I was asked to play my violin at the Tibetan school’s talent show where we were teaching English. I heartily agreed and started preparing a song with another American friend who would accompany me on the guitar. We met a few times casually… Read more
