Today on the blog we are touring an old barn in Connecticut that has been converted into a fabulous contemporary home. It is a wonderful mix of old and new as seen in this charming breakfast nook. Photo @nehomemagazine, design @oomphhome .
I know life moves through seasons and sometimes when you know your in the thick of a heavy one, it’s harder to move through the motions of everyday life. For the past few weeks we travelled to Cebu in the Philippines with @one_child_matters and learned about devastating situations, where the sexual exploitation of children has become a trend, and the beauty of innocence is being trampled upon. Talking or even typing this out makes me so angry, and leads me to want to share something greater, that there is restoration, I believe through Christ. We had the honour of seeing this, face to face with angles of light that are living miracles and testimonies to the pure joy of the Lord. @one_child_matters is a organisation which gives (and we can all give through), to providing the children an education, mentorship, friendship, simple things like volleyball / basketball nets and hoops and of course food, beds to sleep in. Most of these girls were rescued at 9-12 and (some younger and older) and they need years of guidance, learning and growth to come out with stability. I can’t even explain how inspired I was personally by who they were and the way in which joy overflowed from of them. I believe when we go through trials and choose to trust in the goodness of God, we are moulded further into His understanding, and the amount of others we can then help, through that understanding - is revolutionary. Daily I’m reminded of how blessed we are all to have air in our lungs, legs, arms - a voice. There are definitely seasons and lives that experience extreme suffering and I know we are all called to do great things through faith in listening, helping, however that looks. A link is in my bio and if you want to learn more about One child’s mission, to give / donate whatever your heart feels, it is there 😊. Or if you want to reach out, and ask anything feel free :). Love to you all, thank you for the constant support, may grace and peace be with you! Galatians 6:2

I love this picture between Ashley and Bennett!
I think it shows the love between a mother and child, and I love the way the sun hits her hair & how you see a pop of Fall color in the background. .

I rarely draw realistic/black and grey but enjoyed it ✏️
