Hello there! You’ve found my little cozy place on the web.
I’m Esther. A Jesus lover. Wife to my best friend. Momma to 7 blessings. Heartstrings tugged by all things simple and sweet. You’ll find me blogging about homemaking, marriage, parenting, adoption, homeschooling, sustainable & natural living.

I don’t claim to have it all figured out, but I know The One who does! My frayed edges are being shaped and re-formed on a daily basis.

I hope my very flawed writings; will only point you ever closer to the one who so graciously makes hearts whole, and fills them with an everlasting joy. I desperately pray, I won’t obscure this breathtaking view.

I’m honored you’re here.

The kids and I set our hoard of library books on the counter when all of a sudden I hear “Esther! How are you doing? It’s so good to see you!” There she was, that sweet familiar face and smile I’ve seen for years. I first met her from our old Farmer’s Market days in town. She always bought my big fluffy rolls, a jar of jelly and a pie.
