Cotton Candy House (New Home Update!)
If we look excited in this picture it’s because we so are!! It’s been 2 years of living with my parents since we sold our house and moving into our dream home is getting closer! I realize that I haven’t posted an update since our ground breaking announcement so here it is; our cotton candy house. We now have adorable insulation everywhere!

Bible Verses for New House
We took these photos the other day and as we speak, the sheet rock is going up so it will look like a completely different house tomorrow! We wanted to get our scriptures on the framing before the sheetrock was placed. We went from room to room and wrote scriptures all over the place. No one will see them later but we will always know they are there ;). My husband discovered this idea on the Five Marigolds blog and we just knew we had to do it!
(In the Main Entry)
“But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord” – Joshua 24:15
(In our son’s bathroom)
“My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you. Bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.” Proverbs 3:14
“It is not fancy hair, gold jewelry or fine clothes that should make you beautiful. No, your beauty should come from within you – the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. This beauty will never disappear and is worth much more to God.” 1 Peter 3:3-4
We are building with Christensen Homes and it’s really coming together nicely. In just a few short months, we will be moved in. It feels so surreal and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to build our dream home. My husband and I have never purchased a new car or a new house so we are completely excited about the “new house smell” and something new for our family is just a dream come true.
(Master Bedroom – that vault is 😍)
“And over all these virtues, put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians 3:14
(Master Bath and Closets – we will have a tub! I’ve never had a tub in the master before!)
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12
(Kitchen & Dining Room – looking at it from the living room)
“Taste and see that the Lord is good.” Psalm 34:8
“Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” Psalm 90:14
(Living room – hubby is 6’4 and that’s 19 feet at the highest point EEK!)

I hope you got some cool bible verses for a new house ideas! I’m planning to get some of these in prints to hang on the walls after we move in.
It’s so important to have these reminders of what we value most – people are people and we can get sidetracked from what’s truly important. That’s why I love holidays so much. They are all reminders of what’s truly important and give us eternal perspective of what the Lord has done for us through Jesus.
(Siding in progress)
“You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.” Deuteronomy 28:6
I hope you enjoyed the tour of our cotton candy house! I’ve kept our baby girl away intentionally during this stage because the house literally looks like cotton candy! I think she is the only one who may have a difficult transition because she doesn’t get that this is our house. She’ll miss Grandma’s house because that is the only ‘home’ she knows.
If you have any suggestions or ideas on how to help children transition during a move, please share your Mama or Papa bear wisdom in a comment below. Thanks friends!

Loads and loads of love,
