We are a culture gone wild over the idea of transforming spaces. Yet, Marlee LeDai says, there's something more to making a house into home. In this elegantly written book, LeDai moves readers beyond a splash of paint, a slipcover, and new crown molding to the heartbeat of the home. Each chapter takes readers through the house--from the front door to the backyard--giving ideas, insights, and "soul projects" that make walls talk and give a home heart. Whether living in a mansion, a fixer upper, or an apartment, the spaces in a home are where readers flesh out who they are and how they define "family." And they will be left with a new view of what their homes can be and how they can create a sacred place where family, friends, and faith can grow.

About the author (2004)

Marlee LeDai is the editor of the Damaris website for women and author or coauthor of nearly thirty other books for adults and children. She lives in Kaiser, Oregon.

Leyah Jensen studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, but her journey in photography began much earlier. As a toddler of a professional photographer, she was often staged in tutus or with a finger in the nose. Growing older, she helped lug equipment to places like Tijuana, where her father was basing a children's book. Then in her teens she completed several photojournalism assignments abroad of her own, through children's organizations such as Compassion and other orphan relief agencies. "My First Ballet Class" is her third children's book to photograph. Her own experiences as a child model have taught her that you can't capture the magic of childhood unless the subjects are free to truly be themselves.
