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 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, it’s the season of test scores, trophies, and report cards. My kids feel pressure to perform and measure up. They carry silent fears, wondering Am I going to make it? Am I accepted? Am I enough? My children can believe their value and worth are on the line.
Bring freedom from fear by your mercy and acceptance. Let my loved ones rest in the truth that “the Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7) Ease the burden to live up to others’ expectations by trusting in your perfect love.
Thank you for your unconditional love that receives us as we are. You never demand perfection or hard work to earn your favor. Draw my children close to you. Teach them the true meaning of success—to love, serve, and follow Jesus with their whole hearts. Let them live in your grace every day. Amen.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
Pursue Courage as a Couple
We invite you to share a 31-day journey of calling on God for brave love. For courage to follow Christ wherever he leads. For resolve to give and serve with all you've got. For strength to overcome fear and doubt. For tenacious love for God and each other, no matter what you face. We pray your marriage will be blessed as you read, pray, and grow in faith together.
