Hello you! I am so glad you’re here! My name is Morgan and I’m a wife and mom of three boys under three! Crap did I just say that?! I had a sign in our last house that read “welcome to our beautiful chaos!” That’s exactly what my life feels and looks like!
I truly enjoy helping women (mothers especially) create beautiful functional spaces in their homes! As a stay at home mom I know how it feels to live in an unfinished unorganized home while raising little ones. There’s nothing more annoying than having to keep your kids alive while taking care of your daily chores AND seeing unfinished home projects or spaces all around you. It drives me nuts!
We are in our 3rd home (currently remodeling it) and completely remodeled our last two homes. I truly believe when your home looks how you want it to it makes you feel at peace and you can take on the world around you a lot easier! I remember telling someone before when the house is a mess from the kids but everything is pretty it doesn’t bother you as much because it looks like a pretty mess! Beautiful chaos!
Now that we have done so much for ourselves I really desire to help others with their homes and spaces. I want other mom’s who don’t know how to design or decorate get that home they desire to have. It’s so fun for me to look at a space and make it functional and pretty for a family. A place with pretty decor and hidden storage for all the things and toys! This allows mothers to be mothers and to focus on what really matters! Making messy memories with their children.
My Divine Home is no longer just a blog. It’s apart of me. Along with my Instagram where I share our home projects and designs. I also have my own interior design business (FINALLY) called Divine Restorations where I can help you get that desired completed space in your home! I chose the name “My Divine Home” when I started this blog and my Instagram because the word “Divine” means “of, from, or like God” which has huge meaning to me! After having 3 children and 3 homes in 6 years I really learned who God has called me to be. I’m here to create, encourage, serve and share the amazing love of Jesus!
I first realized my gift and love for all things home when my husband and I purchased our first home 6 years ago. We didn’t have a lot of money and I wanted to make our house feel more like home. I bought cheap furniture from Craigslist and gave each piece new life! It was so much fun for me. Refurbishing furniture for our home turned into selling furniture which turned into building furniture and then starting my own furniture business. In the midst of creating one of a kind furniture pieces for people I found my love for designing and decorating our home. I was able to make extra money for different DIY home projects. I was hooked and my mind has been designing and starting new projects ever since!
Once I found my groove that’s when Instagram was created. I loved inspiring and teaching people that doing projects and painting furniture didn’t have to cost a lot of money or effort. It’s all about stepping out of your comfort zone, having the right tools and trying! So what if you fail. Everything I’ve learned was learned through trial and error, watching Youtube tutorials and asking advice from any contractor or DIY-er I could get ahold of. My husband’s favorite saying is “Don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game!” I love encouraging people especially women to use the proper safety gear and to get their hands dirty! You don’t know until you try!
After getting married and remodeling our first home I struggled through a miscarriage, chemical pregnancies and have now birthed three healthy boys! God is so good and so gracious. Motherhood isn’t easy (It’s actually really hard) but I feel so blessed to be doing what I love every day. Raising my children with my best friend, growing in my relationship with God, remodeling homes and helping others create spaces they enjoy living in!
The year 2020 had some major ups and downs as you know. For us we felt like we didn’t skip a beat with everything going on around us. We became pregnant with our 3rd child, finished remodeling our 2nd home and felt like the Lord was calling us to put it on the market. We listened, bought a trailer, remodeled a trailer, lived in a trailer with two toddlers, found another home (fixer upper), remodeled most of it in under a month to get it move in ready before baby was due! Whew! Can I breathe now?! We honestly wouldn’t want to live any other way. Life is busy… Oh it’s so busy!… But oh so fun. We are currently halfway finished remodeling our 3rd home, raising our crazy babes and eager to see what this next year will have in store for us AKA what God calls us to do!
