Bible verses written around our home

Before the drywall went up we wanted our friends and family to come in and cover our home in verses. We love the thought of our home being built on God’s Word. Not only that, but our builder mentioned that you never know who you could be reaching as far as the people working on the house. We hope these verses touched someone!

Before they poured the concrete for our porch, we placed a Bible in a ziplock bag and nudged it exactly where people will step each time they enter our home. I wrote several prayers inside, asking God to bless all those who enter and to allow us to be a blessing. To protect our home and us. And that just as that location is the first step you take when entering, we will use it as a reminder to keep His word first in all that we do…

I absolutely love this verse my husband wrote in our daughters room. I had never heard it before: “May our daughters be like graceful pillars, carved to beautify a palace” <3

The Tennessee Farmhouse Story

First off, Hi! I’m Kristin and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by! I live in Tennessee with my husband Casey, our precious daughter, and two dogs (eventually we want to add some chickens and goats in the mix)! 🙂

Like many farmhouses, they all begin with a story. I guess I should start off this blog with how it all began…

When my husband and I were dating, we always dreamt about eventually getting some land… somewhere to put down roots. We had been looking  for “gently rolling, partially wooded and partially cleared” land for a while. You think that would be easy to find in Tennessee, ha! It was nearly impossible. People around here like to hold on to their land, then pass it down generation after generation. It’s so gorgeous here, who can blame them?! We searched and searched for what seemed like forever. I kept praying that God would show us the place that was meant for us.

In September of 2015, we were driving on some back roads and came across farm land for sale in a nearby town. It was gently rolling, partially wooded, and partially cleared. It had a tiny creek, and there were trees surrounding the land that went all the way to the top of a little ridge. It was close to everything and everyone we love, but far enough out that you have some privacy from city life (I’m a country girl y’all). We immediately fell in love and called the owner. I prayed and prayed that it would all work out if it was meant to be. Everything fell into place and a few months later, it was ours!

I still can’t believe this gorgeous slice of earth belongs to us. God has entrusted us with this land and my prayer is we take care of it to the best of our ability, all while glorifying Him. I hope you follow along on our home building journey.

Stay tuned, the next post will be about our house plan! 🙂

“By wisdom a house is built and through understanding is is established; through knowledge it’s rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.” Proverbs 24:3-4
