A Quiet Place...



I had an idea to create a quiet place in our home. a place for quiet reading, a place to go & be with God when the rest of the house is too noisy; too distracting. A place I can go for my early morning Bible study & a place for me to go at quiet time, when the girls hunker down in their room (somewhere where i cannot be distracted by chores, or emails!)

Today, I created that place. It was very simple & the whole family is pleased with the result.
In our tiny spare room, I hung a canopy from the ceiling



on the floor is a small rug, a basket of seasonal books & a selection of Tasha Tudor books.





I have added some of my Bible study aids to the children's bookcase



Here is my own personal Bible study basket



Here is a reading bag I have put together for my 'school' study



My journal, You Are Your Child's First Teacher & Heaven on Earth: A Handbook for Parents of Young Children

My cosy chair



Ssshhhh!

What a fabulous idea - I wonder if I can find a quiet space in my home, hmm, I'm not sure - will have a think.

That's wonderful that you've created a 'meditation place' in your home. You Are Your Child's First Teacher was such an inspirational book for me when my daughter was born.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments.
Brandy, I bought the canopy from Ebay. It was an Ikea one. It appealed to me, as it wasnt too pink & 'girly' (not that there isnt anything wrong with girly!)
