Hello, friends, and welcome to this week's Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.
May I take just a minute here to ask a question? As you can see in the title, today's party is the 197th time I've hosted this link party. I'm wondering if this party still serves a useful purpose in the blogging community. Could you tell me what you think about that?
When I started Grace at Home, my hope was to create a place where all kinds of bloggers could share their content, and I wanted to help all of us to think about the fact that our homes could be a reflection of God's grace in our lives. So many people have linked up over the years, and I've been blessed by the friendships I've formed with bloggers who came here to join the party.
Also, I've hoped that non-bloggers who read my blog would be blessed by the features I include each week. It seems to me that a party doesn't work if it's only good for bloggers and not good for readers.
So I'm asking: is this party a blessing to you? Is it worthwhile for me to continue to host the party? I'd so appreciate your sharing your opinion in the comments below (or if you prefer, you could email them to me (richellap (at) gmail (dot) com). I thank you so much for sharing your thoughts!
Now, after all that, I still want to share with you some posts from last week's party that caught my eye.
Kaitlin from Sweet Chickadee Design shared very practical, easy-to-follow tips for how to mix patterns.
Patti from Old Things New shared a recipe for a beautiful main dish salad. I want to try this!
Alisa from Flourishing Today shared wonderful advice about how to pray powerful, effective prayers.
Those are just a few of my favorites. A big thank you to everyone who joined last week's party! I'm so grateful for each person who links up each week. If you've been featured, feel free to grab the "I was featured" button. I'd be so proud if you displayed it!
