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
Lord, as our family prepares for Easter, help us to see past the bunnies and baskets. We want to celebrate the living hope of Easter that we find in Jesus. He tore down every barrier to knowing your love. He overcame death. Fear. Despair. Hate. Division. In him we have life no one can take away.
This year, may our family worship like never before. Fill us with awe as we behold your resurrection power. Open our eyes to see your light, no matter how dark it might seem in this world. Give us humility to confess our sin and call on you for mercy and forgiveness. Restore the joy of our salvation. Stir us with anticipation of seeing Jesus’ face when he comes again.
Lord, we see new life budding around us. Breathe new life into the spirit of our home as we praise you. May our offering of love--of our hearts, souls, minds, and strength--be pleasing in your sight.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or face."
(1 Peter 1:3-4)
