About Thriving Home
Thanks so much for taking the time stop by our blog. We’re friends and stay-at-home moms in the process of raising young kids. Let us be upfront with you, though. Our homes are far from perfect. Kid temper tantrums that register on the Richter scale, dinged up walls and stained carpet, and the occasional marital spat mark our homes as much as the next.
Our motto around here is “living for more than just me.” That means, we want to strive to make all we do–whether parenting, cooking, creating, or even caring for ourselves–to be about something beyond our own happiness. We want to serve God and others faithfully day in and day out. To do that, we need grace that only comes from Him day in and day out. We have to remind ourselves of that truth every.single.day.
So, for all the pretty pictures you see of healthy recipes, DIY projects, and more on our blog, just know that our journey of striving for a thriving home is bumpy at times. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to share just a bit of what we are learning along the way. Our hope is that we can be a blessing to you and your family in some small measure.

More About Polly and Rachel
My name’s Rachel. I’m a wife and mom of three young kids with a bent toward natural, healthy living. I love learning and talking with others about the topics of just about any health-related topic, cooking and food, parenting, and faith.
Hi there. My name is Polly. I’m a wife and mother of two little ones. I work part-time at my church for the 20-somethings ministry. I’ve been described as a “high tech grandma” meaning that I enjoy the hobbies of an old lady but have the skills of a techie. I’m embracing the nickname because yes, I love to craft, sew, knit, find new uses for old things, garage sale, bake, and wear slippers. I’m an on-the-go person who loves the outdoors and being creative. You can read more about me here if you’re interested!
