This isn't the first time I've tried to organize my pantry. It's something I seem to do at least once or twice a year. I pull everything out, wipe down the shelves, discard out-dated food staples, and then, put everything back in, nice and neat. But for whatever reason, I can't seem to keep it organized. Within a few weeks, it always ends up looking like this again.

Winter is long and harsh here in Northern Alberta, and while I firmly believe that Embracing A Heritage of Hygge does allow for Celebration In The Midst Of Winter's Brace, summer brings with it a gleaming sense of enthusiasm and an appreciation for a more relaxed hygge style. And while I love my cozy, hygge home in every season, my favorite place to be during the summer, is on my back deck.

So God starts to breathe into you, expanding your heart, making room for the love that He is pouring in there....... That's the beginning of the rendering process. So then you start walking around with your heart going through this crazy, strange, beautiful, painful process. Sometimes it's just so good, you know?

There is nothing I want more than the kind of love that fills my heart up so much that it pushes against the seams, and seeps out and spills onto everyone I meet. I want this Love to explode from me so that everyone I come in contact with cannot help but get caught in the crossfire...... the crossfire of God's love and grace and hope and forgiveness. I want the kind of extravagant love that builds and grows and bursts from my he...

Home is where we are at our best. It is where we feel most secure in who we are. But home is also where we're at our worst. And I'm okay with that. Actually, I'm more than okay with that. I love that our home is safe, and soft, and comfortable enough, for us to be able to let go of our composure sometimes; to allow us to experience a little turbulence in a protected environment. Sometimes life is hard, and it hurts. Home...

he is tender, and she feels things deeply. She wears her heart on her sleeve. And yet, she is afraid of vulnerability; afraid to be seen for who she really is. She has been hurt. That deep kind of soul wrenching hurt, that nearly breaks you in two. But thankfully, She knows how to forgive. She is good at forgiveness. She has been given lots of opportunity to practice it. But more than that even, she knows that she herself has been...

"Abundance is measured by what you've given away, not by what you have." I get it now; what Bill Johnson meant by those words. It isn't about giving away stuff from our homes that we no longer want or need. If that were the case, with the amount of stuff I've donated to our local, charity run thrift stores, I should be considered filthy rich. (In truth, according to global standards, I am filthy rich. You prob...

Fellow hygge lovers, light all of the candles. Snuggle up in a luxurious throw. String up fairy lights in a cozy corner in your home. These are all beautiful, worthy aspects of a cheerful, hygge environment. But above all, make room in your heart for Love to dwell. You, after all, are the greatest declaration of hygge your home could ever express.

Always remember that hygge is the culmination of investing in the people around you, the space you inhabit and the stage of life you're in. Hygge looks different for each of us. Your hygge home should look and feel unique to you. It should reflect the people you love and the season you are in.  So, I'd be thrilled if you'd like to take a little inspiration from my home, but be sure you transform it into something unique...
