Beneath My Heart was created in March 2009.

It is a blog about thrifty home decorating, faith, family, and a little bit of food.  :)


My readers are mostly women who love “all things home and family”.

My Design Guide
Disclosure Policy
I can hardly believe I am saying this, but I make money from my blog.
What a HUGE, unexpected blessing in my life.  I didn’t start blogging to make money, but over the past two years, I have learned that I can actually make money doing what I would do for free.  How cool is that?!
So I wanted my readers to know that I make money.  It’s not a ton, but it helps me keep socks on my boys’ feet and supports my addiction to large cokes from McDonald’s.  So I am happy with that.
Why am I telling you this?
Well, because I have to.  Here is the FTC ruling:
But also because I want to be honest and trustworthy.
Though I make money on my blog, I will not sell my soul  to the devil. :)
I will not promote a product that I do not like myself just for some extra cash, e.g. I choose which products/services to promote and which companies/small businesses to work with based on what I think my readers would enjoy.
