These short devotions draw a clear connection between the basics of interior design and scripture to encourage spiritual growth. The devotions in both books include a scripture, reflective writing, a prayer, and a design or lifestyle tip accompanied by a gorgeous photograph of a designed space.

In Heart & Home: Design Basics for Your Soul and Living Space, Victoria writes 90 devotionals about topics such as unity and harmony, focal points, balance, and negative space. In Heart & Home for Christmas: Celebrating Joy in Your Living Space, she understands that all the tasks and stress of the holiday season make it easy to forget true joy.
In these 100 devotionals, she connects easy decorating tips with spiritual thoughts for reflecting the true spirit of Christmas in your home and actions.


“As I read Heart & Home, 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 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.”
