Fall Cozy Home Challenge and Giveaway!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year!

There’s nothing like the crisp mornings, changing leaves, cable knit sweaters, and pumpkin lattes of the burnt orange season.

It inspires me to create a cozy home–and to look well to the hearts living under my roof.

Each Monday for the next six weeks, I’ll be sharing a “cozy assignment” to help motivate us to make our home inspiring and to care for the people we love.

There’s no pressure with this. If you want to join in, do what you can. We aren’t trying to be Martha Stewart or Pinterest Superwomen. I want you to work within the means and life stage that God has place you. And I want to share your joy.


Some of the challenges will be decorative, and others relational, but it will all be heartwarming and fun.

Who’s in?

Today’s assignment?

Use what you have to create a cozy corner–one you’d love to curl up and read a book in. You might add a throw blanket, a reading light, a candle, some fall leaves or flowers. Just make it inviting.

Here’s mine.
