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 have it all together, but I know The One who does! My frayed edges are being shaped and re-formed on a daily basis.

I desperately pray 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. 

Now my only hope, to not obscure the breathtaking view of these moments.

I’m honored you’re here.


divide and transplant | a new chapter

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.
