Welcome to Making Home!
I'm Jessica, but my friends often call me Jess, and you can read more about me here. Our family has lived and traveled around the world in various spots since 2005, but we are currently delighted to be "Making Home" back in our home state, Texas, once again.
Feel free to read recent article, and be aware that there are several hundred articles/posts from the past few years that you can check out about marriage, family, parenting, womanhood, and more. My aim here at Making Home is to encourage and challenge Christian women to think beyond what American culture tells us, and to think beyond even what so-called "Christian" culture might tell us-- and to examine the issues and ideas that affect our hearts and homes from a biblical perspective. I enjoy discussing life with women who keep Scripture as their standard.
- You may find the sidebar helpful-- To the side, you can check out categories of topics we've talked through, or you can look under the heading "Making Home Highlights" to find some of the most popular or favorite posts.
- In 2 boxes on the left & right sidebars, you can find my favorite books & resources. Truly, one of my great joys in life is passing along helpful, encouraging, and insightful resources to others.

- I love to point people in the direction of great and worthwhile information, books, and articles. I do that most often through this semi-regular feature -SHOW & TELL- These posts are chock-full of links I've found to interesting articles, blogs, people, or ideas... this is my storehouse of great "finds" on the internet!
- And if you're new to reading blogs, this is kind of like an online magazine with the most recent articles posted to the top of the page, so as you scroll down through, you're scrolling backwards through time. You can use the archive menu on the sidebar to access previous month's articles, or choose to browse by "categories" (subject matter) so you can click on what you want to read about.
I'd love to hear your thoughts & comments, even on issues we've previously discussed... I read every comment, so it's great to have you join in! Please join in the discussion or e-mail me at this address: MakingHomeblog@yahoo.com
