Welcome to It's a Beautiful Life!

Well, here we are!

And who are we, anyway? If you haven't seen our Team Page, you can find all our bright, shiny faces there, along with a bit of an introduction!  Basically, we're a group of friendswho really want to encourage other mamas, and finally, after a month or so of dreaming and coaxing and designing and plotting and praying, we're finally ready to welcome you in to this little spot of pretty and calm we've created.  Well, we may not actually be entirely ready, but we're so excited, we can't wait anymore! 

So, come on in!

We hope you'll pour yourself a cup of something wonderful and sit back and look around for a bit.  This is a work in progress and will continue to be that, always, but we are praying that this spot will be one in which you can find hope, encouragement, and a bit of beauty to add to your home and life. 

We've walked through dark times and bright together, and if anything's for certain it's that we need God and each other.  Through it all, we've come to believe even more strongly that life is beautiful, even when it's messy and complicated and difficult.  And we believe home is the first place that beauty should be cultivated and treasured.  Of course, we, too, sometimes find ourselves overwhelmed with all the day-to-day have-tos and to-dos and what-have-yous that beg and plead and insist on our attention.  We've learned that God offers rest to us when we are weary, as well as a pattern of creativity we can follow, in order to breathe His life in and then pass that life along to the people around us.  We also find that when our way becomes cloudy, the rest and creativity and intentionality God offers are way simpler to find when another mama nods her head in empathy and points us in the right direction.

And so we welcome you here, praying you'll find a bit of space and a lot of grace in what you read on these pages.  May we all encourage one another in love!  And if you sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook, you'll get updates as they come.

Blessings~

Misty Krasawski, Louisville, CO

Misty Krasawski is hopelessly flawed but eternally optimistic, because God has promised to be the Author and Finisher of her faith! She is also wife to Rob, mama to eight precious children and two beautiful daughters-in-law, and spends all her free time trying to avoid the laundry by reading classic books, painting with watercolors, lighting too many candles, baking copious amounts of cookies, and studying as much theology as she can lay her hands on. She's currently pursuing a degree through Colorado Christian University and is a regular contributor to both The Better Mom and For the Family, and also occasionally pours her heart out at www.mistykrasawski.com and the brand-new www.itsabeautifullife.org. She loves encouraging people to chase the dreams God has placed in their hearts, preferably over steaming cups of tea and coffee and probably something chocolate.
