Welcome Home!

 Hello and welcome home! My name is Katie and I am happily married to the man of my dreams, Tyler, we have one son, John, and I am beginning my journey as a homemaker! From working full time and being a full time student to now being a full time stay at home mama, life’s seasons definitely test us and show us what we are made of! However, during this new journey I have found a revamped passion for cooking and creating recipes, crafting, and homemaking in a way I had never got to fully enjoy before! My passion is to make homemaking “cool” again, in that the negative label that has been pushed on it vanishes and it can be seen for what it truly is, which is literally making your home! Whether you work full time or stay at home, everyday we are making our home into something! My goal is to make my home a place where God dwells, love covers sins, peace is the normal, bellies are full, and laughter is the language. 

You’re probably thinking, “Oh great, another one of ‘those’ women who act like they have it all together and makes me feel less than for buying stuff she home makes”. Trust me, that is not me at all! That is why I want to start this blog, because although I would love to say homemaking is this wonderful serene task, it is the hardest thing I have done to date (and I finished a Master’s degree with a newborn). The purpose of this page is not to ever make you feel less than as a mama or wife, but to know that you have a fellow woman out there in the battle field with you, doing whatever we can to make a home worth living in for our families! 

So I a making you a promise, to post real life here; to post the yummy recipes, and the disasters (so you can learn from my mistakes), to post the funny stories and the struggles, and to walk alongside you as you learn to make your homes too. So I pray that you can find encouragement, laughter, and also really yummy recipes here! Strength for your tough days, tips when you need them, and scripture at those perfect times where we need an on time Word from God!  Everyone is welcome at my kitchen table, some come on home to Katie’s house and let’s start remaking homemaking as we journey together!

  1. I couldn’t agree more! Striving for homemade, and making our home a place of peace, rest, and comfort is not an easy task. It has been a struggle for me as well over the years. At times I had dry ‘drought’ times where my hands would not lift to do anything. It has helped my mind to figure out my ‘why’. If my reason was to impress and to gain affirmation from the public, I grew discouraged and lost hope quick, but if my reason was for God and the mission He gave me as a woman to serve my family as His kingdom, I am empowered and motivated to do more. Even if I will be judged wrongly by people, I will stand firm and rooted in the truths behind my intentional homemaking. God bless your journey Katie! The beautiful part of your journey is that it is yours. It is unique and beautiful just like you are!
