Based on 1 Peter 4:10 which says, “Every believer has received grace gifts, so use them to serve one another as faithful stewards of the many-colored tapestry of God’s grace”, I believe in the importance of sharing my creative gifts to make this world a better place. The life I live, is simple and gentle as an example of an uncomplicated Christianity. It is not chaotic, greedy or is it selfish. I try to give more than I receive. However, I equally understand that when God offers through others, I must eagerly receive. Growing with Char’s name suggests, we are all in this life to spiritually grow with each other. Here, you will find simple recipes, ideas on traditional crafts, modest, yet stylish ideas for everyday women’s attire, vintage decorating ideas, and many examples of blessings of home. You may also find some homemade goods. In all things, I seek to join with you in experiencing daily habits aligned to heart, home, and simple-graceful living®. Within this sweet space, I strive to consistently implement integrity, wholeness, and traditional truths, to live the idea that love is always better and less is indeed more.


“The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman.” 

Elizabeth Elliot
