About Jana

Welcome to Harvesting Home! I'm Jana. I love family; I love home; I love wherever God places me!

Through the years I have been thrilled to work with thousands of children and women, helping us all to bloom where God plants us! Every home can be a Harvesting Home by utilizing everyday opportunities to bear lasting fruit!

I am a mother of three (plus one in heaven), “Honey” to three precious grandchildren, wife to a husband who loves me with all his heart, kids’ teacher, ladies’ encourager, home decorator, and community promoter! My life has taken so many fun turns, and some not so fun, to help me appreciate all people and places ranging from small towns of a few hundred, to large metropolitan cities of a few million.

Over the years I have owned a party planning and entertainment business, taught private voice and piano, remodeled/decorated/nested in 11 homes, and now tell the wonderful stories of our local schools as Communications, Family, and Community Engagement Coordinator. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration that I completed along this crazy journey, but that’s a blog for another day!

This is one special little corner. It’s probably one of my favorite spots in my house. It’s undergone a little facelift lately. A new color on the walls, a new lamp, a new(old) table. All just things that help make this corner cozy and comfortable. But that’s not what makes it special. The book on the table next to the chair and the moments spent reading it are what make it special! I love waking up early, pouring a hot, flavored cup of coffee, and curling up in this chair with my Bible. The things I’ve learned and the many ways I’ve been comforted, challenged, and changed are too many to count! ...

MONDAY MOTIVATION "Where are the Instructions?"

Have you ever tried to play a game without reading the rules or instructions before you start? What about that Christmas present for your child that you are putting together at midnight on Christmas Eve? It has 1,000 pieces and you don’t have the instructions. Can you imagine trying to get it put together correctly?

Without the instructions or rules we end up with a mess on our hands. It’s the same way in life. We need something to guide us. I don't know about you, but I need instructions to get through this life! You know for things like parenting, marriage, friendship, work, all the things!

Sundays around the table are one of the many blessings that our family has shared through the years. Whether at home or at our local favorite restaurant, gathering together after Sunday worship has always been something special.

Life lessons, love, and more laughter than I could ever measure frame these moments for our family. But one of the sweetest blessings of these times is always making room at the table for others. Join me on this week's Sundays Around The Table as we talk about Making Room At The Table.

I have been so excited to reveal this find and project with you! The weather finally cooperated this past weekend and we were able to get it finished and in place.

The vintage industrial style provides a great rough, farmhouse style for your home or office. I have purchased some new reproduction furniture, but I've always hoped to buy one of these authentic vintage industrial carts. I was finally able to snag one of these at the flea market in Round Top and I am over the moon with how it turned out!

After a few years of living in our almost 100-year-old home, we made the decision to move a few rooms around to make room for a new home office.

I need your help deciding on a design!

Redesigning a space is always fun and challenging. I thought I would enlist your help in some of the decisions and walk you through my process of how to design a beautiful and functional home office.
