How to Maximize your Space for Big Living in a Tiny House

TinyHouseCostTitleIn the wake of the United States’ economic crisis, many are trying to find a solution to a world of uncertainty; downsizing seems to be the best way to finding any form of a solution. More and more people are enchanted with the idea of building tiny homes, as others are moving into apartments, condominium or town homes with small rooms. Living in a tiny home, townhouse, an apartment, or a condominium can sometimes mean having to fit many items into rooms too small to hold them all, at first glance.

When placing furniture in a living room most people chose dark furniture because it is design-friendly, but most dark furniture needs much leg room as they often seem to block passages and take up more floor space than is desirable. When choosing furniture for small space, it is best to choose light colors such as cream, white and light blues that make the room seem larger. When choosing furniture with limited space, we have to pay close attention to the weight and the size of the objects.

The question of how many pieces have legs and how many have a box shape is also an important factor in finding the right furniture. Believe it or not, how many pieces and the color of the furniture makes a difference: furniture in lighter colors goes further in making your small space feel larger than those in darker colors can.

The Bible states that “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1: 4.

Walking the Journey from Doubt to Faith; Trusting God No Matter What

Thinking back on the journey I’ve traveled to overcome doubt to faith; it started at an early age in my life. However, being a curious child, I thought that I was only exploring life. A journey is taking single steps to begin recovery to overcome any issue. My journey from doubt to faith start when I found myself loving to read and write at an early age of seven; that when I found myself remarkably impressed after reading so many examples of doubt in the Bible.

I remember thinking for the bible to include so many examples of double in it, that must be evident that God has more tolerance of doubt than most people in churches. By the age of twelve, I was a committed Christian. But despite my personal commitment to God and my involvement in the church, I still began to have doubts about my faith walk with God.

Now, I believed 1 Thessalonians 5:10 that Jesus died that we might live through him, but I was still haunted by questions like, Am I living for God? Does God love me?
