You’ve discovered an online homely house, the kind Bilbo found so comforting on his journey there and back again. Think of the blog as a series of connected rooms, each filled with fascinating and purpose-packed oddments gathered just for you. Themes of grace, creativity, beauty, and story wind throughout.

Unlike Elrond, though, I’m not an ancient elf. I’m more a big sister who invites you inside to put your feet up and rest awhile, contemplating the goodness of the God we serve. You might detect the scent of fresh cinnamon rolls if you linger long enough. In the meantime, you’ll find refreshment for your soul and fodder for your brain.

So come on in and make yourself at home. Welcome to The Dwelling Place.
