Karen Stott » | Sharing my mess, my hope & my journey cultivating an Intentional Home

  It started last night in the kitchen… Isaac was whipping about, sautéing meat and prepping dinner. “I had a tough conversation with the kids today.” “yeah?” I replied…”You know when they say that I’m stern, and I don’t feel like I am, but they feel like I am?” “uh… yeah.” came out of my […]

  • Dawn Masters - So very true! We get so caught up in the whirlwind of life that we cease living and we merely exist.

  • Ashley Kester - Love you friend! Thank you for sharing your heart. You are not alone in this! I need to implement some of these things in my life as well.

  • Alisa Nelson - Thank you. My oldest is only 2.5 but I started my business fairly recently and feel the compulsion to always be working on it. Sadly, I know it’s true that I would choose work over my kids because I crave that passionate&successful feeling and I’ve been feeling the nudge to do several of what you listed above the past few weeks. Thankfully, a family friend is now watching my kids 1 day per week giving me a full day to work and focus so I can more easily pick my head up. Setting a more concrete schedule (with specific ideas for what the kids and I will do during the “play” times) has really helped me stick to working in the early hours and nap time.

    It’s encouraging to know I’m not the only one who struggles here. It’s easy to start believing the lies about being a bad mom. Praying for you now as you head into your media quiet hours.

  • Laura Yang - Love this so much, Karen!

  • Ginger Gregory Loper - thank you, thank you for this heartfelt, real, candid and inspiring post!

  • Rebecca Lewter - Thank you for sharing this!! I need to apply those to my life now!

For the last few days we’ve been staying at our sweet friends house to recharge and renew our visions for the new year. It’s been such a huge gift as we have so many expenses down the pipe with our adoption and housing situation. So this time away that has little to no expenses has […]

Today I decided that it was time to stop letting dreams silently die in my heart.  Today is my day to go on record.  There are things that have been bottled up inside my soul for longer than I can even remember.  Things that you see or think or feel when you are 8… 12… […]

  • Kristin Ungerecht - You. Love you and your heart. And this dream of yours. I believe He will answer your prayer, friend. Powerfully and wildly and beyond what you’re asking or imagining. Because that’s what He does. Cheering for you and so thankful you’re willing to share your heart like this! <3

  • Melissa Pepin - gosh…this….THIS. You have described a portion of Heaven Karen Stott. You have described a place of healing and hope and love and family and community…and it made my heart race just seeing the words on paper. A land of no pretensions and expectations put on each other by the world and people who do NOT have our best interest in mind/heart. A world where love and prosperity rest in helping one another know that Jesus brings grace and patience and peace…and we have that in Him. A world that is filled to the brim with soft melodies, warm sunny days, and sweet tea. A really beautiful, happy, amazing place…and I pray Come Jesus Come…and I know He will deliver this place to you. <3

  • Erin Westermeyer - I seriously love this. I was tearing up at the thought of your precious dreams. And nodding along and saying, yes, I GET it. Oh, so many good things in store for you. Beyond belief. Thanks for being so real and transparent. <3

  • Amber Housley - you are so wonderful. I can’t wait to see you next week. hugs! xo

  • Lindsay Shugerman - Somehow, a woman I never met and hadn’t even heard of until I followed a series of links on Instagram (starting from Royers in Round Top, TX) just described my lifetime dream almost word for word. I am stunned. And delighted! And inspired. I am not the only one! What a gift you just gave me but reminding of that! Thank you ♥
