Are you someone who has to move a lot because of a job? Or maybe you are a military family who has to continually plant, and then uproot. Or maybe you have recently made a decision to move because you want to be closer to family or friends. Whatever the reason, today on Hey Sister! we are discussing how to create home wherever you are — whether you are choosing the place, or it’s being chosen for you.
My guest today is Bekah Di Felice. After years of moving as a military family, Bekah decided to write about her journey to create home amidst the transience in her new book, Almost There: Searching For Home in a Life On The Move. We talk about how we create a new definition of home, what it means to be a pursuer of people, what the first thing is that a person should do when moving into a new house, and practical ways we can make a new geographical location feel more familiar.
We also touch on how people can help others create a sense of home who are moving into their area. Too often, when we are the ones who are rooted in a place, we forget to keep reaching out and inviting others into our comfortable circles.
This interview will offer fresh inspiration as you strive to make home wherever you are!
