Creating an Atmosphere of Hospitality
As Christians, a huge aspect of your faith is creating places to care for and nurture others, including your own family, offering hospitality and encouragement when people need it most. A home that reflects the Christian faith by offering a place for your own family and others to come and unwind as well as rest is important for everyone to take a break from the chaos of life. A few ways you can create an atmosphere of hospitality is by having an open table for others to come enjoy conversation on the good days and on the tough days. Another way is by having a safe space for family to come to whenever they need to relax and rejuvenate away from the chaos of the world.
Making a Space for Worship
As you decorate your home it is important to create spaces within your home that serve special purposes. Creating these spaces will allow your home to flow better and keep areas neat and tidy. One way you can do this is devote an area for your morning devotionals that can serve multiple purposes.
You can create an area that has a comfortable chair and a light that will be a perfect spot to sit with a cup of coffee every morning. Grab a cute basket that will store all of your devotional supplies that you can simply put away when you are done for the day. The same area of your home can be a spot throughout the day to sit back and relax or enjoy conversations with others.
Creating Reminders for your Children
There are multiple ways that you can have Godly reminders for your children throughout your home. Decorations such as a hanging canvas with Bible verses can be simple reminders for your kids to read on a daily basis.
You can display Bible verse in their bedroom that will be reminders of their identity in the Lord and spur them on in their faith on a daily basis.
Equip Yourself with Truth At the Door
