WELCOME

I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

WELCOME TO THE FEITNER ADVENTURE!

Is God in your home?

I have a love affair with houses.  I have a love affair with beautiful architecture.  Oftentimes I "find God" more in architecture of old churches than in nature.  (Please don't think that's sacrilegious - it's just always been true of me.)  I find that being in such a beautiful environment to calm me and help me focus inward.  I'm awestruck that God would give mankind that kind of ability.

I never really thought seriously about living IN a church (except as a young child as I watched Sound of Music), but after seeing these photos, I might be willing to consider it.  This came to me as a forward from my mother-in-law - and I'm simply awestruck.  The church itself is breathtaking - and the owners decorated it so tastefully!  I could spend an hour absorbing each photo - the massive, yet understated pieces - it's phenomenal!  This old church is in Kyloe, North Cumberland, England.  The couple who purchased it decided to restore it instead of renovating (which cost 3 times less money).  They kept the outside as it was ... here's the inside.















I'm sure you don't live IN a church ... but I certainly hope God is in your home anyway!
