If you know you could use some encouragement as you start your quest to create a haven – and if you’d like someone to help equip you – you’re in the right place.

“Hilary, I just fell in love with you. You are so down home. I love that you don’t come across as a perfectionist–you just get the job done.” – Patricia

“My husband and I, along with our two children, travel full time in an RV. I’ve always struggled making it feel homey. I had a mindset that it wasn’t a house, so why try? Then in one of your emails, you asked what was keeping me from making my home into a haven. I realized that just because my home wasn’t a house, it should still be a home! It totally changed my perspective!  And now, my RV finally feels like a home!! Whenever my 2-year-old sees any RV, he points at it and says, “HOME!” That’s what I’m trying to create – a home! And thanks to your help and I inspiration, it’s finally happening! Thank you so much for what you’ve invested into me! My family has truly benefited from it!” – Allison

“What a clear call of grace and truth in a culture that constantly tells women it’s not enough ‘just’ to stay home and mother. – Ashley
