Walking Through the Storm (What Really Matters)

Many of you walked with us on our journey through the horrific storm in 2011. Keri at A Happy Home Media asked me last week to share the story with her listeners.

Guide to Living Beautifully

guide to living beautifully

For years, I have loved perusing Mrs. Dunwoody's Excellent Instructions for Homekeeping. It's charming, instructive, at times humorous, and delightfully nostalgic, reminding us of a time when life was less hurried and women made real, beautiful homes.
