Grace at Home No. 494

Hello friends! Happy February!

A friend sent me this message:

I laughed but halfway wanted to cry. My January certainly felt like more than four and a half weeks, but we made it!  Thank you for all your kind encouragement for my son. He's getting better each day, thank God.

I am grateful to welcome you to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. Here are a few highlights from last week's party.

Are you trying to get organized this new year? I have some hopes (not yet firm enough to be "goals,") but haven't yet started work toward them. But when I get myself going, I'm going to use Kathryn from The Dedicated House as a source of inspiration. Check out her closet project!

And another area that I need to work on his my home office. I was glad to see these tips from Tracy Lynn at Declutter in Minutes.

Looking for a fun little Valentine's Day project? Beth from Creatively Beth shows you how to make this cute little Kisses Booth from dollar store materials.

I'm still a novice at using my air fryer, but I want to use it more and more, so I was tickled to see that Kristy from Air Fryer Fanatics demonstrates 10 ways to make pizza in the air fryer.

I believe strongly that rest is important—and I know that I don't always get enough of it. So I was convicted by this article from Pam at A New Lens. She asks some good questions!

Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party!

Here at the Grace at Home party, you can link up any post you've written that demonstrates how you're filling your space with truth, goodness, and beauty. I invite you to link posts about
  • DIY projects

Whatever you do to make your home or sphere of influence 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!
