I thoroughly enjoy this type of behind-the-scenes look at how and where people work...and it caused me to think, how would I describe the spaces in which I work?
My work as mother is all-encompassing and indeed follows me from room to room. And my work (and yours, dear reader) as a domestic theologian cannot and should not be confined to an office. Rather, my work takes shape in the different spaces around the house.
And more significantly, my workspaces take on the theology I believe to be true. In other words, I decorate from a theological perspective, because the Bible is applicable to every arena of life...right down to homemaking.
“It is true that all men are created in the image of God, but Christians are supposed to be conscious of that fact, and being conscious of it should recognize the importance of living artistically, aesthetically, and creatively, as creative creatures of the Creator. If we have been created in the image of an Artist, then we should look for expressions of artistry, and be sensitive to beauty, responsive to what has been created for us.”

I filmed all of the videos below in July 2016. As I mentioned in the introductory video above, several of these rooms changed in the intervening six months, so be sure to view the newest batch of videos above if you'd like to see the most recent content.
