Welcome! To our little corner of the world. We are so glad you’re here!
We are two women. One Mama (Sondra). One daughter (Abigail).
We love a lot of the same things.
JESUS. Family. Celebrations. Life. Writing. Reading. Researching. Creating. Keeping JESUS at the center of things. Seasons. And so much much more, but that is enough for now.
I (Sondra), had a deep passion when my four children were young. I wanted to see families celebrate the holidays as Holy-days with all the fun still attached. Where Christmas would be CHRISTmas and winter a time to celebrate with snowmen. Spring would be a spring party with bunnies and chicks and Easter would be about JESUS and little lambs. In fall, October 31 would be Fun Fall Festivals and a celebration of those who lived before (All Saints Eve) . . . who were faithful to JESUS all their life.
Now the daughter is grown and wanted the Mama to turn all of this into e-Books and blogs. So they decided to work together as a team. But behind them is a bigger team. First their wonderful husbands – one of over 41 years
and one of over 5 years
– who work behind the scenes with them. The team gets even bigger as behind them is a whole host of family. Three other daughters/sisters and their husbands and 6, and counting, little ones, precious grandchildren of the Mama and the Papa.
For it is out of real life stories and celebrations that LIFE happens. Celebratory life. Whether it is celebrating the little things a day holds (even the tearful ones) or a major life event . . . we come together.
That is why this blog is called Celebrate Heart and Home. It will be about us and our kids and the journey God is taking us on. But it will be about a lot of others too that we connect with along the way. And tons of ideas on how to journey closer to the heart of God in celebrating the dailies and the Big Ones in our homes.
We invite you to journey with us and to share your experiences. We love learning with others.
