A Season for Change

Those of you who faithfully follow this blog may have noticed a change or two. Or maybe you concluded that some new blog had popped up in your feed you never remember subscribing to. Thanks for reading anyway. :)

Back in October we decided to take "Kaylee At Home- Journal of a Homemaker" and restructure it a bit. Rather than from just one perspective, we determined that together we want to share with you the stories of our life with this online family journal.

Of course we needed a new title to fit, and were careful in our choosing.

So, why "A Family Planted"?

We felt the title should be a reflection of us. Not just in our current state, but-by the grace of God - who He's calling us to be.

Psalm 1:1-3 AMP
" Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather. 
 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity]."

This is our desire: to be like that tree firmly planted- our roots grounded in the Word of the Lord and our lives yielding the fruit of His Spirit- that we may be stedfast, unmovable, and always abounding in the work of the Lord. {1 Corinthians 15:58}

The intent of this blog is not to lead you to believe that we have a perfect life, have it all together, or you should think like we think and do as we do. Neither is our goal to attain a large following or sponsors to acquire additional income.

The purpose for this blog is :
  • a place to keep our families and friends informed on the happenings {big and small} of our home
  • to share our stories and encouragement to those who can relate to the seasons of our life
  • a place for Kaylee to share her homemaking passions- recipes, crafting, organizing, and DIY home decor
  •  to testify of the faithfulness and goodness of Jesus Christ; and share our hearts in a simple, honest way as we grown in Him  

At times you may hear from us often; at other times we may post sparingly. We hope to inspire some, as many have inspired us.
