Ok….let me be honest…design, decorating, throwing fabulous parties….those are not my strengths. I can be real and admit it. I wish they were. For some people it comes as naturally as breathing…for folks like me it’s a struggle.
That’s why I was so excited to get my hands on a new copy of Inspired Design by Roxanne Hughes Packham and Hannah Packham.
This book is not only a great resource to learn more about the ins and outs of entertaining and decorating, it is a glimpse into the family and history of this beautiful family. I love the ideas for gathering things, starting your collection for entertaining from scratch and even Hannah’s point of view. Once I saw the Scripture sprinkled throughout, I knew this would be a book I would love. This book is a resource you would look to again and again as well as a beautiful addition to your collection. A guest picking up this book from your coffee table, will definitely want to have their own copy. A great gift this holiday season! I also LOVE that 100% of the proceeds from this book go to Heart of Hope which benefits orphans in Romania, and Inspired 31, a Mother-teenage girl ministry.
Check out the interview below with Roxanne!
What is Inspired Design?
A book about three aspects of the home and how it’s power to touch the souls of those within. Those three aspects are Designing for warmth and beauty to nurture others, meaningful touches and gestures to celebrate and honor your loved ones on special occasions and ordinary days, and lastly that it is not what we have or do not have that blesses others, and changes lives, but how we use what we have. It is about incorporating YOUR family heritage, and your unique gifts, into making a beautiful, family home.
I know that a mother-daughter ministry, “Inspired 31”, has begun along side of Inspired Design, why do you think it has resonated so powerfully?
Especially in this economic climate so many women are more resolute than ever that their families are the most important thing in their lives and their daughters, or close friends, should be celebrated and cherished. Without exception our gatherings (3 so far, in it’s first 3 months) have attracted hundreds of mother/daughter/sister/friend combinations wanting to come, for 2 hours, and celebrate what is good, pure, worthy of praise especially each other. Inspired 31’s mission is to teach girls (and now even woman of all ages) to find and follow God’s unique path for their lives. We have inspiring speakers, and a wonderful positive/uplifting program. We have people inquiring about beginning a chapter in their area, in many cities.
Where can we purchase a copy of Inspired Design? Also, we heard this book is helping orphans and teenage girls as well.
Inspired Design makes a perfect gift with so many ideas for making Christmas, or any holiday, more special with all kinds of thoughtful little details.100% of the profits go to Heart of Hope, which benefits orphans in Romania, and Inspired 31, a Mother-teenage girl ministry. With each purchase you are helping all kinds of different children. Please visit my web site at http://inspireddesignpublications.com/.
