Welcome, welcome, welcome! I'm so glad you're here for the Grace at Home party—and let me tell you, I'm in the mood for a party! Look what I did yesterday:
Many of you know that I'm under contract with InterVarsity Press to write a book. Yesterday was the deadline for my manuscript, and by God's grace I met it. I am so grateful now to turn this work over to the expert guidance of my editor at IVP. She may slice it to bits, but I trust that she knows what she's doing, and in the end the book will be so much better than I could have made it on my own.
Thank you so much to those of you who prayed for me! I can't begin to express how grateful I am. I'll keep y'all updated on how things are going, and for sure I'll tell you all about it when the book comes out, but that won't be until next year.
So for now, let's turn to some highlights from last week's Grace at Home party.
Isn't this "coffee cubby" sign cute? Julie from My Wee Abode created it from an old frame, and she shares amazing step-by-step directions for how to make your own sign with any message you choose—no fancy equipment required!
Chas from Chas' Crazy Creations made these adorable pillows using a thrifted shower curtain and an old pair of jeans. The pillows hold a journal and a pen. Wouldn't this make a neat gift?
Lina from Sew Historically passed along a great idea for creating a doggie chew toy from an old T-shirt. I think my son's puppy needs some of these!
I'm always happy to find recipes for main dish salads, especially for the hot summer months. Erin from Delightful E Made shared this yummy looking Balsamic Grilled Chicken Salad recipe, and I want to try it.
