A welcoming home is part of our daily ministry to our family. And it feels most peaceful when it’s a cared-for and clutter-free zone.
But when it’s in need of some loving decorative attention, some folks struggle with the idea of spending money. However, it doesn’t have to be expensive or extravagant to get your home in order. If you’re too embarrassed to ask guests into your home or you’re stressed out by the state it’s in, it may be time to look for help.
Whatever your home needs to be a welcoming haven, I have good news for you! I know just the person to help you! So whether you are on a tight budget, either by choice or circumstance, or up-to-your-ears in stuff, I want to introduce you to my friend Jayne Westerholt. She understands our dilemmas AND has lots of practical solutions, ideas and tips!
