Love. On Purpose {A Link-Up}

by Edie Wadsworth on February 27, 2013

This year, I made a goal to live with more intention-—to find ways to spend my time, my money, and my gifts more wisely. It’s so easy for us to fill our lives with so much stuff that we leave little room to serve others, to dream our dreams,  to make art, to love well. This […]


What Love Sounds Like:: Love, On Purpose

by Edie Wadsworth on February 25, 2013

Nobody tells you how hard it will be to love someone.  Most of us have such a flimsy idea of what love means. You have no idea at the outset of this adventure that this relationship may cost you your life. The culture has taught us to grab what we need, to get our part, […]


The Inner Ring

by Edie Wadsworth on February 23, 2013


It’s shaping up to be a busy year so I’m extra thankful for the hunkering down we’ve been doing the past two months. One month from today, I’ll be in Dallas, Texas with all my Blissdom friends and I absolutely can’t wait. I’m reposting this because I love C.S. Lewis and his thoughts on this […]


How to Make a Skirted Tablecloth {the lazy girl’s guide}

by Edie Wadsworth on February 19, 2013

I love my dining table. Like LOVE it.  It’s an Eye-talian made table that I bought at O.P. Jenkins after our house fire. (I can’t find any more specific information than that). This is one place I decided not to skimp. I’m  all about a Goodwill rehab project but I wanted a good, sturdy table. […]

Around the House, {winter edition}

by Edie Wadsworth on February 16, 2013

Aren’t you just itching for Spring right about now?  At our house, we’re a mix of irritable and extremely contented.  We’re tired of homeschooling and gray skies and shin splints and  complicated epic poems and dirty floors and cluttered counter tops and pilling yoga pants. But then that’s all a lie because we hope the […]


Jesus, Mumford and Sons, and the Sermon on the Mount

by Edie Wadsworth on February 14, 2013

I’ve been in love with lyrics since I can remember.  I ALWAYS want to know the lyrics of a song.  That may be why I love historic hymns so much—they usually have a rich, depth of meaning that is missing in most modern music. When I hear a new song I love,  I usually Google […]


40 Days of Water

by Edie Wadsworth on February 13, 2013

Today, we begin our Lenten pilgrimage in a 40 day trek to the cross, where we remember the sufferings of Christ and His stubborn love toward us. The penitential season of Lent reminds us that we are not what we should be.  It’s a time of stripping away, peeling back the layers that keep us […]


Pillow Talk::It’s All a Sham

by Edie Wadsworth on February 11, 2013

Welcome to my blog!! I recently updated my ‘about’ page which has lots of links to give you flavor and feel of lifeingrace. In a nutshell, I’m crazy over decorating, cooking, cowboy boots and C.S.Lewis.  And I homeschool, which might make me just plain crazy!  This story of this pillow cracks me up. I bought […]

Lent begins this week on Ash Wednesday and lasts 40 days with it’s culmination in Easter.   This is a repost from last February {and the February before that!) and will explain Lent in further detail for the newcomer to the season.  My thanks to Pastor Will Weedon for allowing me to republish part of […]

your real, new self

by Edie Wadsworth on February 4, 2013

“Your real, new self (which is Christ’s and also yours, and yours just because it is His) will not come as long as you are looking for it. It will come when you are looking for Him. Does that sound strange? The same principle holds, you know, for more everyday matters. Even in social life, […]


Lisa Leonard Designs {and a giveaway}

by Edie Wadsworth on February 2, 2013

We are starting love month off with a bang here in my little corner of the world. This was my first Lisa Leonard necklace.  Or was it my third.  Anyway, I’ve loved her since the beginning of blog time. I met Lisa and her sweet sister at Blissdom and I’ve so loved watching Lisa’s business […]


Happy Love Month

by Edie Wadsworth on February 1, 2013

1.  I don’t know about you but I’m gonna be holed up all weekend working on a writing project that’s due Monday.  More on that later. 2.  I love winter weekends, where hunkering down and reading and writing and baking are not only allowed but encouraged.  And ? Happy Love Month!  Although, I always hate […]
