by design episode #43: Kristen Welch // We are THAT family

On today’s episode we chat with one of our favorite writers and humans, Kristen Welch! Kristen blogs at, she’s written a couple of books {two of which are on Lyn’s list of the BEST books eva!} Rhinestone Jesus and How to Raise Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, AND she founded a non profit in Kenya called Mercy House. She’s a gal who started writing to encourage young momma’s thru the journey of motherhood, and she’s found a way to share her story of faith and parenting in a way that not only points you to truth, but also makes you laugh. If you haven’t read her writing, head over to her blog or pick up her book {links are below!} She’s such a sweet soul, so raw and real and transparent…and we know you’ll love her as much as we do!

We also chat with her about her recent family trip to Kenya, the beautiful heart of Mercy House, and she shares her design love with us…which totally made us want to hug her thru the phone 🙂

Thanks so much for listening!
