Creative Meetup: Defining Home

2013 journal dreaming | Bringing Design Home

Home is…

Where Cale is. Where James (our baby) is. Where I rest. Where I feel safe. Where I feel sexy all day without makeup and my smelly pj’s, Where Josie (our dog) snores, where it smells like home cooking, where the sun comes in from the window just so and time stands still, where God speaks to me, where God sings to me, where I dance like no one is watching, where I sing loudly, where I eat more chocolate chip cookies than I should (there is always room for ONE more), where I keep all my clothes, where my family and friends come to find rest, where I cook all my favorite meals, where plum is my favorite color (at least for this season), where my heart is full, I can hide, I can be me, and I can figure out me.

Home holds all of my favorite things.

We recently had another old fashioned creative weekend with some of our dearest friends. Armed with old school pen and paper we doodled, dreamed, then dreamed even bigger of our life and what we really want out of it. In that place of dreaming we kept coming back to our personal definitions of home.

For me, home is a place where we get to do collaborations from our hearts, heads and hands.

A place that celebrates heritage, legacy, and all things local.

A Spirit-led life full of creativity, integrity, and love.

A place that doesn’t let us skip the process.

The definition of home holds all of my favorite things.

How do you define home? What does it look like, smell like, what parts of home do you miss the most when you are gone?

We have crazy friends who start entire ministry’s while they are still in college. Somewhere between the 2am-6am slot they must find time to invest in it because in between class, studying, eating, sleeping and having a life… I don’t know how they fit it all in? But, this is not your average “church”.

Welcome to the Forge Community.

Kids art is the best. They are not afraid to draw (or speak) exactly what they think. They put their innocence right out there on the table for all the world to see and in moments like these…it’s the most precious, most perfect piece of art we’ve ever seen.

Ok so it’s time we let you in on a little family secret. Cale is the oldest of 5 kids and although they are all growing up (some married, dating, and college bound) we secretly enjoy working together. While some families loath the holidays or game nights, we tend to actually “plan” weekends together. And our family weekends inevitably turn into something physical like painting, picking the garden, and the latest…chopping wood!

Suddenly the dream is alive again, more than ever we want to make this thing work, move forward and win out. Because the dream was always about people, about giving time and money to see lives changed, to see those that need a break, get one. Now we have the opportunity to do that for my family and we can’t wait to see what God does with our passion!

Sometimes you walk clients through a design process, provide the tools and the resources to help them maintain their brand, and send them on their way. And then there are those exciting opportunities where they come back for more…
