Because Whitespace is Something Too

“Whitespace is anything but nothing.”

-Bonnie Gray (Finding Spiritual Whitespace)


  1. So very true.

  2. I love that picture!

  3. Ahhhh, it is like taking a great big breath of fresh air…absolutely beautiful!


  4. I went out and got a gallon of some lovely Benjamin Moore “Simply White” paint thanks to your beautiful blog and seeing how pretty it looked on the open white spaces of your last home. Pure open white spaces really do refresh my heart and soul. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  5. Ahhhhh … yes!

  6. So wise.

  7. Thank you for this link. You have no idea.

    (Also I’m not sure if it’s me being demanding or just me realising your posting schedule, but it’s seemed quieter over here lately. I hope you and yours are well, that the stress of renovating isn’t getting you down, & that you’re taking some time for refreshing your own soul after what must have been a busy season, what with buying your lovely-but-in-desperate-need-of-love property at the same time as finalising things with your book. Whew. May you have the perfect summer. :) )

    • Yes, Karen, the house AND the stress of launching a book that have DRAINED me–actually our entire family. I think the next few weeks around here will be intentionally slow, and I so appreciate this community that not only is good with that, but tells me that is good and healthy. I love this space so very much!

  8. So true. That picture is amazing

  9. Such a God thing (b/c most things are;) that you had this post up on the day I found (although not ‘looking’) her book in the Christian bookstore! I had a sale coupon and since I’m not just a designer but also a book junkie I couldn’t let it go to waste. I asked God to help me find a new ‘now’ book and I believe He led me to her’s -tucked away on a shelf with a beautiful simplistic cover that caught my eye. When I picked it up and read just a bit I honestly wanted to put it back- never have I felt such knowing and fear of knowing more. I’m in a spiritual white space myself- a difficult journey that shouldn’t be such after coming out of an overly extended overly emotional few years and as crazy as it sounds- Rest hasn’t coming easy. So- as I crack open her book again later today after packing again (for our next rental move this weekend) I’m going to dream a bit more intentionally about how I can create some White Space in our next home :) – thanks for sharing!

  10. I’m a fan of white space too. There’s something about white space that is serene and immaculate. Thanks for the share.
