I am so glad you’re here. I’m Ali, the face behind Mustard Seed Beginnings. My Husband, Jordan, and I live in a small country town in West Michigan. We have 3 boys (10, 8, 4) and a daughter (18).
This little corner of the internet is my creative outlet where I take you along all my DIY home projects, Home design, Gardening adventures and thoughtful insights into our life + faith.
Jordan and I moved to our small town in 2012 where we purchased and still live in our very first home, a little 1940s cottage. We have been slowly transforming her as our budget allows making sure to focus on Functionality and Timeless design.
Everyday I am learning the importance of simplicity and living full of intention. Real life is truly lived in the in- between seasons: Where life is imperfect but we choose to create a beautiful life for ourselves and those around us. To not allow the imperfections to shadow all the beautiful moments life has to offer.
I hope you know you are welcome here- just as you are. I am truly so glad you are here. Join me as I share about Design, DIY, Faith, and Motherhood.
I love the fresh air when sitting outside
to gather my thoughts and write in my journal.
Home is the garden of life; the soil that grows my spirit, nurtures my soul and welcomes those I love.
Nourishing my family with wholesome, lovingly prepared meals that fuel their bodies and warm their hearts.
I open my windows every morning to hear the birds chirping and allow fresh air to enter.
"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace." —May Sarton
When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Proverbs 3:24
