How To Design A Home Office

Whether your home office is designated for running a business, the occasional telecommute, or simply a nook for paying bills, a well-designed home office is a necessity. It should be a place you want to work in.


Designers make very conscious decisions about what to emphasize in a space, because the focal point immediately determines its purpose. When it comes to your home office, it’s important to emphasize objects that instinctively tell your brain “this is a space for work.”

How The Hen House Turns: Nanny And A Book

How The Hen House Turns

Nanny and A Book

When the Hen House was ready, complete with hand-picked straw in the nest boxes, we packed everyone into the car on the pretense of visiting friends in the valley.

When we turned into the yard where we were to choose Shawne’s birthday present, we found to our horror that many chickens were running around loose, with no insulated, bomb-sturdy Hen House to shelter them.

Shawne took great delight in picking out three hens to take home. Nanny was a little hen with dark red feathers. She was easy to catch.

Pastor Granillo: Embracing The Big Picture

I can relate to poor ol’ Peter in the Bible. He means well but has a tendency of putting his foot in his mouth at all the wrong times. I think I relate to him because I see so many of us “regular folk” in his methods and in his heart. He loves Jesus, he knows Jesus is the Messiah, he anticipates all the great things that are being done through Jesus; but when Jesus tells him something that doesn’t fit into his picture of what God is supposed to do, Peter actually pulls Him aside and rebukes Him! (Mark 8:31-32).

Can you imagine hearing God say one thing

Pilgrimage To San Salvador

At the end of January, I planned to travel south from Guatemala to Nicaragua to attend a Rotary Project Fair. Planes would be faster, but buses give you a chance to see more of the country. Central America has a great system of public transportation.
