Welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by to visit my blog today and that you want to know a little more about me. I mean…that is why you’re on this page, right? 😉 Honestly, for whatever reason I have the HARDEST time writing a bio post. It’s seriously the hardest thing for me to ever write. I know that sounds ridiculous. It should be a piece of cake considering I am the authority on all things “me” related. How hard can it be to jot down a couple of paragraphs describing myself? Well, I’ll tell you…it’s very hard. But, it must be done so here’s what I came up with:
First of all, my name is Nancy Hoeninghaus. I named this blog “From Haus to Home” as a play on words using the last part of my last name as it is pronounced like the word “house”. Get it? See what I did there? Pretty clever, huh? 😉 I am married to a man I met when I was just 14 years old and have been with him now for more than half of my life. He is truly my very best friend, my biggest supporter, and my soft place to fall. We have been through the wringer together and I couldn’t ask for a better person to do life with.
We have two amazingly brilliant and beautiful children, Isaiah (aka “Zai” aka “the boy child”) and Alexa (aka “Lexi” aka” the girl child”) . They are truly the best part of me and have brought more meaning to my life than I could’ve ever imagined.
I love singing (my mom says I’ve been singing since I could talk) and my greatest joy is singing worship songs to my Jesus! He is the reason I sing, the reason I breathe, the reason I thrive in life instead of just survive. Without Him, I don’t even want to imagine where or who I’d be. He is my everything!!
I love to decorate and became a Certified Interior Decorator a couple of years ago. I mainly do it for fun and for friends. I really don’t consider it my career.
Writing is my catharsis. It is the way I vent…the way I discover…the way I am inspired…the way I inspire. I love to write. I received my first diary as a gift when I was 9 years old and have written my feelings and ponderings on paper since then. Blogging just seemed like a perfect outlet for my love of writing and so here I am.
My life has been far from “normal” and I have been told by more people than I can count that I should have either a TV mini-series, a book, or most recently, a reality show because there are things I have experienced that just aren’t “normal”. I suppose those people find my history fascinating…to me it’s just my life. Between my husband and my stories…we’d have books for days!! Haha! 🙂
I love inspiring others and hope that this blog will be just that…inspiring. Whether I’m blogging about a decorating or DIY project or life in general…my goal is to inspire, motivate, and encourage. I hope whatever you encountered on my blog today did one of those three things for you!
If you want to know more about me…just ask. I’m a pretty open book. 😉 I hope you peruse my blog and enjoy it! Happy reading!!
Oh, and I couldn’t publish this page without a pic of our furry Hoeninghaus…Kevin!!
