Many Are The Plans
"Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails." Proverbs 19:21 If you ask me how I got here, I will recite Proverbs 19:21 as it best describes my journey. Having taught special education for almost 15 years with two Master's Degrees under my belt, I was well on my way to meeting my career goal of becoming a school administrator. Unbeknownst to me, God had other plans for my life.
As soon as my first son, Elijah was born, my husband and I felt the nudge from the Lord to make some drastic changes. The decision was made that I would leave my career as an educator to stay at home fulltime.
The Lord’s ways are certainly mysterious and in His perfect plan, He had me stumble upon this passion for transforming discarded or outdated vintage and antique furniture into beautiful, functional pieces. We now have three sons, Elijah, Jeremiah and Josiah and one on the way. My children are my motivation and my inspiration and my husband has my heart. My love for them ignites my creativity and my drive.
When it comes to my furniture, my heart's desire is to paint the world beautiful one piece at a time. I love the idea of my furniture art bringing peace and comfort into your home. For this reason, each piece is lovingly and sometimes painstakingly transformed and given a new life, a renewed spirit.
Renewed Spirit Home is a reflection of what is in my heart and my obedience to the Lord's commands, "Let everything you do be done in love." 1 Corinthians 16:14 With great love and unending gratitude, I welcome you to Renewed Spirit Home! Stacey
