                    [description] => <p style="font-size: 12.8px;">As a writer, teacher, and speaker with a busy work and family life, Victoria Duerstock understands that all the tasks of the holiday season can make it easy to forget the true joy that Christmas can bring. In <em>Heart & Home for Christmas</em>, Duerstock brings her mission to inspire hope for God's purpose, and her 20 years of experience in the furniture and design industry together, connecting Scripture with design elements and easy decorating tips in a way that reflects the true spirit of Christmas. The devotions and holiday decorating tips will encourage spiritual growth and inspiration to have both a captivating heart and home at Christmas.</p>
<p style="font-size: 12.8px;">Praise for <em>Heart & Home: Design Basics for Your Soul and Living Space</em></p>
<p style="font-size: 12.8px;">Seldom do I discover a book which ministers to mind, body and soul, but Victoria Duerstock’s <em>Heart & Home</em> is just such a jewel! I was immediately drawn to the unique design elements through color photographs,  and especially the carefully selected accompanying Scripture, meditation and prayer. All of these work together to address one small element of life on which I can meditate all day long (and even bring into my own home  through her practical suggestions.)  While I am neither an interior designer nor DIY crafter, I am someone who embraced  “hygge” long before I knew what the word meant–a beauty through coziness and care. You too?  Good. My gift list for this special volume is already quite  lengthy...<br>
Lucinda Secrest McDowell, author <em>Dwelling Places </em>and <em>Graces</em></p>
<p style="font-size: 12.8px;">As I read <em>Heart & Home</em>, I was captivated not only by the beauty and elegance on every page and in every word, but more importantly I was inspired to see how spaces can transform lives. Creating a home is a sacred undertaking. Building a home or office that inspires, comforts, engages and transforms hearts leads to healthy individuals, families and communities. I was challenged to think about how our  homes can be used to focus  us on God;  how every color, design and object can strengthen our soul. I hope that Victoria’s book will also inspire you and refresh your heart and home.<br>
