There’s snow on the ground here this morning, but it probably won’t last the day. The kids are home from school due to the “wintry mix” and we’re packing up all your goodies from the Instagram sale. I’ve also been planning and scheming behind the scenes on future content for the blog, so I’m hoping you’ll help me out by filling out this short, less than five minute survey. You can also leave comments on this post, if that’s easier. Thank you so much for your help. I really listen when you speak, so I’m anxious to hear your feedback—especially those of you who don’t normally comment.
The form is anonymous, but if you’d like to leave your email at the end, you will be entered into a giveaway for a $50 Amazon gift card. I’ve read some of the responses already (I posted it to Facebook, too) and I’ve already gotten some good ideas for future posts. Y’all are smart, that’s all I can say.
Also, I’m working on the January newsletter, to be released tonight or tomorrow, so if you’re not signed up for it, do so today! Follow this link!

I so enjoy hearing your thoughts on your personal relationship with Jesus Christ, our Savior and living Lord.
I love your blog….I am hard pressed to think of a least favorite, but if I had to choose I’d say the food posts. I say that even after making your chocolate chip cookies that are to die for. That probably has to do with my age (64) and the fact I cook mostly for my husband and myself. He doesn’t like to try anything “new” so I stick to the oldies. My kids like for me to make the things that are their favorites, so I don’t adventure much in the realm of food. I love your posts about your faith, your children and your home.
P.S. I filled out the survey but forgot to add… I enjoy your posts about good books!
I filled out the survey but I forgot something!! I want to add that I’d love to see more posts that follow the church calendar or posts about the liturgy of your faith. I am a Christian (evangelical, non-denominational, I think?) but not Lutheran, and I have no experience with the church calendar (I had never seen an advent wreath until adulthood). Posts that include liturgy, routines, catechisms, creeds, history of church holidays…all of those add value for me and help to round out my own faith.
I also love this idea!
I agree! 🙂
I really enjoy all that you post! I saw you article in Better Home and Garden and have followed you ever since then. You are inspiring:-)
Edie, I originally found your site through BHG magazine. I came for the decorating, but found so much more!! I have enjoyed every type of post you’ve created from the decor to parenting to faith. You speak straight from your heart right into mine. Thank you!
I enjoy your thoughts on faith and walking it out.
is your survey more than two questions? i can’t figure out how to get my answers in for the two i see in your post, so will answer in a comment:
i’ve been reading your blog for about a year, i think. and am glad i found it (sorry; don’t know how i did or who to thank for that link).
while feedback is a good thing, i hope you will keep writing whatever you want because you do a great job … but since you asked, my favorites are your posts about God and faith, then decorating, book (lists) and general life stuff.
Ha! I just filled out the survey and realized I put my physical address instead of email address. Silly! Anyway, I love your blog and thank you for all the work you put into making great content!
I only see two questions there and can’t find a submit button for them. I’d say my favorite posts are your ones on parenting/marriage/faith and also your decorating posts. I never dislike any topics you write on. This is my favorite blog because it is so incredibly well rounded in content. The recipes are great, the design posts are so fun (mainly because you have such a unique point of view and I know your house will not look like anyone elses!!!) but most of all your faith is what draws me back. Your posts will come to mind a lot randomly throughout my days; they really speak to my heart. Especially the one on “When you are waiting for a sign”. Wow. I’ll never forget it. Thank you for giving your heart and soul to this sacred space here on the world wide web. It truly is something special.
Edie – Originally, I was drawn to your blog because you are from East Tn and I am also, although I have lived for the past 28 yrs in Savannah, Ga. Even though we have not formally met, I love your heart. I love your posts on faith foremost, but enjoy your personals, food and decorating also. I think your blog depicts that you live out your faith and that is what draws me back to it time and again. Thank you.

I found your blog through Better Homes an Gardens and I have been hooked ever since. Thanks for sharing!
Love your blog, and filled out the survey. I really hope that you are able to get your book out there!
Edie~I love your blog. Took your survey, but honestly, really do enjoy it all. You’re honest and sincere. Just yourself that’s what I like. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it! It’s all good 😉
Edie, I took your survey, but I forgot to mention something that has been a real game changer in my life and I owe it all to you….your menu planner has saved my life! In September my husband was put on a strict diet due to health issues. I was so frustrated with trying to keep my meals and grocery lists organized. The menu planner saved the day and now I can even keep him up to date with his question of “what’s for supper?” by syncing the menus to his calendar too!
I think of myself as being pretty self-aware, but as I read some of your personal writings, many strike a chord and make me realize they are areas in my own life that I need to consciously think about. I guess that is why I am having trouble thinking of suggestions:)
I appreciate you so much!
I love your site. As I said in the surgery. Your site is one of two that have impressed me to linger and want to come by. I love your style. I love your wit. I love your witness and testimony to our Savior. You will be seeing more of me. Blessings

Just taking a moment, after filling out my survey, to give you a great big virtual hug on your neck. Your faithfulness to what the Lord lays on your heart (big and small!) is a blessing to me, and so many others — I’m sure of it! I am thankful God used BHG (of all things!) to bring me into this encouraging and cup-filling virtual living room 🙂
My mom has written a book- a true labor of love. After many workshops, research and thought she has gone the self-publishing route. It’s a memoir based on her crazy life in the south, a happy ending after a tragedy. She is finishing the last edits now, putting the touches on the cover and spine (hard back and paper back) and plans to have a launch party end of March. I have an all new respect for anyone that has written a book- there is so much work that goes into it. I had no idea, but I do now! Good luck to you and hope we get to read it! Love reading your blog- rarely comment but I’ve been told (by my mama of course, in all her researching wisdom) that readers should comment more:)
I love reading your blog! You’re a very talented writer. Keep up the good work!
