I love opening up our home for people to come over. I want it to be a place that’s comfortable, welcoming and relaxing. When it comes to designing and decorating our little apartment, of course I want it to look nice, but what I really want is for people to feel like they can come on in, take their shoes off and put their feet up on our coffee table (yes! that’s allowed!).

In the past two days, I’ve run across an article on the importance of Christian hospitality and a new series on the purpose of home by one of my favorite bloggers (the Nester). They’ve really had me thinking about the purpose of our home. What do I want it to be? What is it now? I don’t have all the answers, but I do think that it encompasses many of the things I listed above. Bottom line is that I want it to be a place where people share about life together. I’m excited to see how our home evolves. I want to see many more faces come through that door in the coming months (and years!?).

The title of my blog points this “vision” (phew - that’s a big word!) I have for sharing life together. “May Richer Fuller Be” comes from an old hymn titled “O Love That Will Not Let Me Go,” which is a favorite of mine. I especially love this version. I want our lives to be rich (not the money kind, ha) and full - and people are a big part of making that happen.
So now the question goes to you. What do you want your home’s purpose to be?
