Grace at Home No. 341

Welcome, friends! I'm glad you're here for our weekly Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Summer has come to North Carolina with a vengeance! Last week brought us temperatures in the 90's. So I was delighted to see lots of summery posts in last week's link up.

If you're like me, you enjoy all things patriotic in the summertime. For some great patriotic decor inspiration, you should check out Penny's Vintage Home.

If you're looking for ways to add patriotic decor to a porch, you'll be glad to see what Paula at Sweet Pea has come up with. Paula is the master of using vintage items in her decor in every season.

If you're looking for ways to spruce up your indoor decor for summertime, you'll be glad to see that Carol at Comfort Spring  has rounded up 15 free summer printables.

If you have children at home, you may have already run into those feelings of not knowing how to keep kids occupied in the summertime. Nicole, Mama of Many Blessings, offers a long list of fun (and cheap!) summertime activities for kids.
If you're looking for ways to get dinner ready without heating up the kitchen, the Instant Pot may be your best friend this summer. Sarah from Must Have Mom has rounded up a bunch of pork recipes for the Instant Pot. I'm looking forward to trying some of these.

Dr. Michelle Bengtson offers both her real-life patients and her readers wonderful advice and a consistent message of hope. You'll be glad to read her post on healing from John 5: Do You Want to Get Well?

Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party! I'm so grateful for everyone who participates.

Now it's time for this week's link-up!  I invite you to link posts about
  • DIY projects
  • decorating
  • recipes
  • hospitality
  • homemaking tips
  • parenting
  • marriage
  • faith
  • self-care
  • soul care
Whatever you do to make your home a place of grace, I'd like to hear about it.  Here's what I ask of you.  Please include the permalink to your post, not your blog's home page.  Please let people know that you've linked up.  No more than three posts per person, please.  Note that if you link a post here, you are giving me permission to share your post, including a photo.  And visit at least one of the other party participants--that's what really makes it a party!

  8. Thank you so much for including my Patriotic Porch Decor with Vintage in your features for this week! Everything on that porch is now in the basement and that porch is in the process of having structural work done and new windows installed. I'm looking forward to having my new and improved porch back for summer relaxing.
