Thanks for stopping by Growing Home Together, where we (Rob & Joanna Teigen) want to share the journey of family life and faith with you.
We’ve celebrated more than 25 years of marriage and are loving life with five awesome kids, plus a beautiful daughter-in-law. We share an addiction to coffee, bookstores, and Christmas music. We debate whether two dogs are enough and who should win “The Voice” every season. We’re a neat-freak married to a mess, an explorer to a homebody, and an introvert to a ‘people person.’ But we do agree that our vows are for always, children are a gift, and prayer is powerful.
Over the years we’ve lived in five states as we made our way here to West Michigan. We look forward to meeting you here, supporting your pursuit of God and the hearts of your loved ones. We can’t wait to grow together with you.

Growing Through Prayer
As we celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime milestone of graduation, I praise you for bringing my child so far. Your creative plan is unfolding as they discover unique talents, passions, and dreams for tomorrow.
Thank you for the lavish love you poured into my child’s life. You gave strength to learn. By your wisdom, you provided insight in times of confusion. In dark moments you offered hope when it felt too hard to keep going. You wrapped my child in comfort during days of loneliness and disappointment. You gave generous rewards for hard work and perseverance. Through every day of schooling and growing, you were faithful.
As my child looks forward to next steps, remind them you’re a promise-keeping God. You never leave or forget the ones you love. You offer wisdom for the asking. Your Word holds encouragement and rock-solid truth that never fails. You’re an ever-present help in trouble. In Christ, you create a spiritual family so “home” can be found wherever they go. You offer deep, sustaining joy that can survive the darkest hours. In Jesus, the future is bright.
Bless my child with faith that never fades. Guide each step as you author a remarkable life story. As this priceless young person commits their way to you, make yourself known as the one true King, Father, and closest Friend.
My son [and daughter], do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,
for they will prolong your life many years
and bring you peace and prosperity.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
