Welcome to this week's Grace at Home party!  I'm so glad you're here.

Here are some posts from last week's party that caught my eye.

Debi from Surroundings by Debi shared 10 ideas for creating a superhero bedroom.  My boys would have loved this when they were little!


Debbie from Debbie Dabble showed us how she stores her amazing stash of materials in her craft room.  Debbie loves all things Victorian, and even her practical storage tips reflect that love.


Jess from Sweet Little Ones shared the recipe for this yummy-looking Dill Cucumber Dip.  I'm going to try this!


And Sharon from Sharon Sharing God told the amazing story of how she and her family watched a miracle unfold.  So inspiring!

Grace at Home No. 164


Welcome friends!  I'm so glad you're here for the Grace at Home party, where we give thanks for God's grace and celebrate the ways we make our homes reflections of that grace.

Here are some highlights from last week's party.

Kim from Exquisitely Unremarkable screened in her small front porch and made a cozy bug-free sanctuary!

Laura from Harvest Lane Cottage provided just what I needed--instructions and encouragement for making strawberry jam. Yum!


Need a little encouragement for a summer that's not working out quite as you'd planned?  Then you'll love "Our Moldy Souls" from Karmen at Chairs from the Curb!

Grace at Home No. 163


Welcome, friends!  It's time for the weekly Grace at Home party, and I'm so glad you're here!

Grace at Home is a party dedicated to thanking God for His grace and celebrating the ways we make our homes a reflection of that grace.

Here are a few links from last week's party that caught my eye:

Lynda from Gates of Crystal shared her summertime foyer, where she sets the tone for her whole home.  Lovely!


Dear Fabby from Fabby's Living shared an old recipe for Banana Cake.  I've made banana bread dozens of times, but not banana cake.  Doesn't this look delicious, and doesn't Fabby have her sideboard arranged beautifully?



Just in time for the release of Harper Lee's much-anticipated novel Go Set a Watchman, Pam from Everyday Living took us on a tour of Monroeville, Alabama, Harper Lee's hometown.  Such a fun post!  I have my copy of Watchman and can't wait to dig in!



And Debbie from Dare 2 Hear the Voice of God inspired us with her post, "Will You Sit With Me?"

A simple truth about God


For the past couple of weeks I've been intensely studying about the Holy Spirit and the amazing mystery of God.

Meanwhile, our sweet little beagle had to have surgery.  If you follow me on Instagram
(@richellaparham), you may have seen this photo of Snickers before her surgery:


And this one of Snickers just after her surgery. Our pound puppy, Cocoa, was very concerned about Snickers's incision.


Lofty thoughts about God and concern for our little dog have been swirling around together in my mind, and I was reminded of this video.  If you haven't seen it, you should take a couple of minutes to see it.  I promise it will warm your heart.



Isn't it amazing how parts of God's creation reveal sweet truths about God Himself?

Grace at Home No. 162


Welcome, friends!

Here we are, smack dab in the middle of summer.  Can you believe how the time is flying?  I'm glad you're here for the weekly Grace at Home party, where we pause to reflect on the wonder of God's grace and celebrate the ways we make our homes reflections of that grace.

Here are a few posts from last week's party that caught my eye.

Sarah from Little Red Brick House built a mudroom feature for her entryway.  Isn't it gorgeous?


Jamie from Anderson + Grant created a dough bowl from--get this--joint compound!  She wrote a full tutorial for this beautiful project.


Linda from Best of Long Island and Central Florida and gave us a recipe for Rum Island Thighs.  I'm always on the lookout for good chicken recipes, so I'm glad to get this one!


Patti from Old Things New shared the lessons she learned from a surprise right outside her front door.  Wonderful!

Grace at Home No. 161


Welcome to the Grace at Home party, where we pause to give thanks for God's grace and celebrate the ways we make our homes places of grace!

Here are some posts that caught my eye from the past couple of weeks:

Paula from Sweet Pea created this patriotic wreath from a wire form and strips of felt.  Isn't it great? And it would store well from year to year.


Kristi from Making it in the Mountains made this amazing headboard from scratch--and she shares a step-by-step tutorial for building it!


I love collecting simple, down-to-earth recipes.  I'm going to try this one for "Poor Man's Fancy Potatoes from Joanna at Everyday Made Fresh.


Sharon Sharing God touched my heart with her wonderful post, "Jesus Knows."  Worth reading!
