Tour Of The New House

It’s time to show you the new house!

In August of last year, I received a shocking call that my family’s home in San Antonio had caught fire. At first I was told that the flames were in the upstairs bedroom, but as the night went on it became clear that the entire house had been affected.

I listened as my mother explained to me that everything had been destroyed in the fire except a few items(which miraculously included important documents and family photos).

They were blessed to have such a wonderful insurance company who made the transition as easy as possible. As the days passed, we were blown away by the amount of love and support they received from family and friends. People were bringing bags and bags of clothes to my sisters who lost everything they owned. While many loved ones offered items to help, one family member offered up her experience as an interior designer in the rebuild.

The house is now done and my family was able to move into their new home on Easter Sunday. While Timothy and I were in town, we were excited to capture the beauty of the new home. What was once a horrible nightmare, has become a blessing in disguise.

Here is a little tour of our new family blessing!

My parents have continually told me that they are amazed that they get to call this place home. Throughout this entire process we have felt a peace from the Lord that He will work this together for our good. We had no idea just how good things could be!

Thank you to everyone who has kept my family in your prayers the last 6 months. Your kindness means more than you know!
