Grace at Home No. 362

Happy New Year, friends!

I'm so grateful you're here for the Grace at Home party. I started this link party years ago for a few reasons:

1) to allow other bloggers to share their posts;

2) to promote community in the blogosphere, hopefully introducing both bloggers and readers to some new folks; and

3) to celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace, thereby encouraging one another.

I wish I could tell you how much it has thrilled me over the years to hear stories of folks who are now online friends who met one another through this party.

Blogging has changed a lot in the last few years, but I still believe that it's best when folks interact with one another. I believe strongly that a strong sense of community is the cure for much of what ails us in society. Face-to-face community is the most important, but I think online community is possible, and that's what I hope to promote.

Now to a question: is this party still serving you? I'm delighted to keep hosting Grace at Home if you like it and still want to participate. Please let me know what you think!

Now for today's party! Here at the Grace at Home party, 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!

  1. Richella, I so much enjoy your link party. I love seeing other bloggers on making our homes places of grace. I also love reading your posts. Thank you so much for taking the time to host this party!

  2. I love visiting your link party... I see this party is still open, so I linked up. I think the traffic may have been slower than usual since it was the day after New Year's. It seems to have lots of party-goers, and I'm back on track with my link-ups after the holiday break. I would love to keep attending, and I agree with the sense of community it offers.

  3. Thank you so much for hosting for us in the start of the new year dear Richella.
    Wishing you and yours a wonderful and blessed 2020.

  4. Hi Richella, most definitely your blog party serves at least two purposes for me. It is an opportunity to share and meet new bloggers, but this is one of the premier blogs I like to visit for a spiritually enriching message, hands down. You most always share an inspirational feature, and I love those. Thank you for hosting Grace at Home.

  5. Hey, Richella... Have you decided to still have the party? ;-)

  6. I agree with the others, your blog is a beautiful place to visit. I enjoy linking up, and I do receive an increase in traffic when a post is featured, plus I have met so many other nice bloggers! If community is your purpose, I believe this party achieves that! Thank you for hosting!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I read every one; they make my day. If you have a specific question, please be sure your email address is attached to your profile or leave your email address in the comment; I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Every blessing!
