Nice To Meet You

  Hi! My name is Stephanie (but you can call me Steph). I'm a Christian, stay at home mom blogging to journal all the wonderful things that homemaking entails. Family, cooking, baking, projects, crafts, decorating, gardening... and a few things in between.

  This is what Silver Boxes means to me: Making something to bless & encourage someone. Saying a kind word. Helping someone with a task that you enjoy, but they may not. Cooking a meal for your family or for the family that has just moved in across the street. These are all Silver Boxes - small blessings. Acts of love from you to those around you.

  I have been married to my wonderful husband, James, for 12 years and we have two wonderful kids, Parker and Audrey.

  Please follow along via GFC, Linky Followers, or Networked Blogs as well as subscribing by email. If you do, please let me know so I can get to know you a little bit. I love my friends & followers & I love hearing from you! Feel free to comment or contact me by email.

  3. Hi Stephanie!

    I keep trying to comment on current posts but the Disqus widget never works for me. Does anyone else have this problem?

  4. Steph, what beautiful thoughts as you describe the Silver Boxes in your life. I am a mom of 3 grown children and 2 beautiful granddaughters. Struggling to raise 2 teenagers after my husband passed I went to a Christian women's meeting and a woman spoke about silver boxes and her experience with a difficult son. That helped me get through some very tough times. I will follow you and hope you will follow me. Thanks for leaving a cookie recipe on our Holiday Cookie Exchange. Come back to visit my kitchen often.
