“Your Home is an Embassy”
I talked to a friend the other day who said something that I hadn’t ever thought of before. He said, “Your home is like an embassy.” And when he said that I thought, “He’s right!” Our homes are an embassy because God tells us in His word that we are ambassadors for Christ (2 Cor. 5:20). Think about it. If we’re ambassadors, that means that our homes are an embassy to the world. I believe our homes are extremely important because we nurture in our homes, we love in our homes, and we raise our children in our homes. That’s where we do life. But when we say that our homes are also a place to communicate our faith and we think about our homes as embassy, to me it elevates the importance of the home to a whole new level. That’s exactly what we’re trying to do at Ever Thine Home®.
When we started what is now Ever Thine Home®, we took a long time to think through what we wanted to call it. We decided to call it Ever Thine Home because it’s about a woman and her home, but it’s also about centering everything on God and on what He has done in her life. Then, when we looked at a tagline that would describe what we’re about even further, we came up with “Believe Beautifully.”
“Believe” is about the substance of your faith. What are you going to believe in? What are you going to count on in your life? “Beautifully” is the other side of it because God is a God of beauty. Just look at the world that He has created. It isn’t only about logic and order; it’s beautiful. It’s spectacular. What God has created is amazing. And so the things that we display in our homes need to have a hint of that beauty, so that they can better reflect God.
Everything we do at Ever Thine Home can be summed up in the verses found in Deuteronomy 6:6-9. God said that we need to display His truth “on our door posts” and “on our gates.” So we’re trying to create things that help you as a woman communicate your faith. We want to provide unique, creative ways to get children and moms and dads into the Scriptures together. We want to help those questions arise when someone comes to your home and they see something and say, “What does that mean?” “Tell me more about that.” That’s why we do what we do at Ever Thine Home.
May Ever Thine Home in your home help you believe beautifully.
