About Me

My photo
Hello, My name is Ester. I absolutley adore Jesus! He is the center of my life. I am nothing without him. He has allowed a dream of mine to come true. I've always wanted a little boutique. I've been praying for the right time, the time is now! I am the mother of 3. I love my children, they keep life so exciting. I homeschool and I have one in traditional school. I love to craft, it could be a full time job. I love it that much. I like sewing, baking, bow- making, and all things family! I am married to my highschool sweetheart, you can read about that on my other blog. www.loveinmyhouse.blogspot.com.

So what have I been up to?

Omgoodnes, busy is an understatement.  We are moving to a new house!! My favorite feature is the window above the kitchen sink (swoon)!! I've always wanted a little window above my sink.  My second favorite thing is the paint I chose.  I went with Bird's Egg by Benjamin Moore.  I usually pick warm colors but I fell in LOVE with this color.

I took before and during pics( I can't believe I remembered)!  My inspiration came from this lovely cottage I stumble across in Pinterest called Cottage 341 .
Kitchen 34
Isn't this the sweetest kitchen?? Ok, so of course I'm a little more over the top but this photo gives me direction.  Other than moving I am doing the usually; school, work, being a mom (and room mom), homeschooling and etc. Mostly, just PRAISING Jesus that I can count this all joy!!

Creating a Balance

I am so thankful that God goes before us in every situation.  The great thing about this Christian walk is that we are already VICTORIOUS!  We will have battles, trials and other opportunities to place our faith in Jesus.  But with Jesus we are winners.  I am so thankful!!
Last week I put my sweet daughter in an actual middle school.  Yes, I enrolled her in a local public school.  She likes it well enough.  However, I am not quite sold on the idea.  Please pray for me.
We are moving into a new house next week and I haven't packed a single thing.  I have picked out a few paint colors and decorated a thousand times in my head.  I hate moving!! However, I am trying to embrace the idea that not all change is bad. I'm reminded of that very fact when I look at the trees changing colors for fall.
I am trying to find the balance of my convictions and life's circumstances.  I want to make sure I'm honoring God and taking care of my family.  I've never been one to take the easy road (ask my mother)!! I just want to take the road that honors God the most.

Change O' Change

I know I've posted before about how much I LOVE change, NOT!!!! It is however so amazing that God prepares us for our season of change.  I just did a bible study on Gideon.  The theme of the study was how God uses our weakness for his strength.  I am so thankful that when I am at my weakest moments God rises up and does something better than I can ever hope for.  God gives us opportunities to exercise our faith.  ( I don't like exercise very much, it's work and discipline)  These are like modern day walk on water experiences.  I want to trust that if I keep my eyes focused on him, I won't sink but I will meet him standing on the rivers of life.  Change will come, but God is constant!! I am find myself so thankful for God and His love.

Making Home your Haven!

This month I am teaming up with Women Living Well . Each week this month they will give a practical tip and a spiritual tip for creating a haven in your home.  They are also doing prizes!

Making Your Home a Haven week 1

This week we were to buy a large candle and have it lit whenever we're home.  Each time the flame catches our eye we are to pray for peace in our home.  Well, they had me at lighting a candle!!! I LOVE candles!! I usually light them anyway, but now I will pray for my family.  I am so excited about this.  We need peace in our home!!! Seriously! I am off to buy a new candle.

I can't wait to see how God moves this month.  I took a huge step of faith this week, in addition to praying for peace I am praying for wisdom.  I am praying that God will order my steps and make His way plain!! I love God and he is so faithful.
