Hello Y’all, I’m Jayne Evans, just an ordinary housewife with a husband, who I will affectionately call My Man, 3 kids, Will, Kathy, and Dillon, a dog and 5 cats. We live in the country in Georgia. Welcome to my home!
I have my degree in Early Childhood Education and taught school for 4 years. That was 20 years ago. Twenty years ago I had my first children (yes I said children! I had twins.) Will and Kathy. Where we live and where I worked made it difficult for me to find childcare we could afford and easily get to, so we made the decision that I would be a stay-at-home mom. Have never regretted that decision for one minute!
There are two things I love to do. Study God’s word and take care of my family and home. While I have been taking care of my home, God has been taking care of my heart. I want to share with you some of the things He has taught me over the years, and some ways you can use your home to share Jesus.
First let me say I am no Bible scholar. I have never been to seminary. I just like to do Bible studies and daily devotionals. I like to share with others what I have learned.
Second, I don’t have my degree in Interior Design. I get all my decorating ideas from decorating magazines. I’m pretty good at improvising. I can see something I like and make it my own. This comes in handy when you can’t afford what they have in the magazines. I enjoy making crafts and sewing and use these talents to decorate my home. I want to share some of these ideas with you.
I hope you enjoy my website. HisHeartAndHome.com. I write here daily about how God works on my heart while I work on my home.
In Home and Garden I post pictures of just that…my home and garden. I will show you some of the decorating ideas I have come across and how I used them in my home. As for the home I have many ideas. As for the garden, I did not inherit my mother’s wonderful green thumb. I will need lots of help in this area.
In Simple Pleasures and Simple Pleasures II I post pictures of a simple pleasure in my life. I am going to try to come up with at least one simple pleasure a day. Feel free to tell me what your simple pleasures are.
In Crafts I will posts crafts and direction for you to make for your home or to give as gifts to others. I will give you ideas as to how the crafts can keep your focus on God as you look at them in your home. I will also post pictures of the crafting parties I will have in my home and the homes of others. If you don’t feel you can make a craft and would like to purchase it, my contact information is in the footer of the page. I will get back to you on a price. 10% of all proceeds will go to Elijah’s Barrel to meet the needs of the less fortunate.
In Kitchen you will find some simple recipes that my family enjoys. Nothing fancy. For most, you will already have the ingredients. We are a meat and potatoes kind of family. I try to find inexpensive recipes.
In Cleaning you will find cleaning tips I have come across and like. I am by no means a perfect house keeper, but I do like a neat looking house. Please share any tips and tricks you have to make keeping the home cleaner.
If you want a closer look at any of the pictures in the blog just click on them. When you are done looking simply slick back.
You can also join me on Facebook on my His Heart and Home page. There you will find links to this website as well as thoughts for the day.
As we go along this journey we call life my prayer is that we can grow together and learn from each other. I love to share what the Lord has taught me and I want to share that with as many people as I can. I figured blogging would be the biggest way for me to reach people. And I love you. Thank you for allowing me to share.
Love you, Jayne
