1. Meet Sallie
I’m Sallie Schaaf Borrink. I’m a Christian who finds joy in helping people find solutions and inspiration for their lives. I’ve been blogging for over seventeen years.
2. Understand What I Do Here
This website is for people who desire to create a quiet simple life for their family. You’ll find helpful content about many aspects of the faith-filled and home-centered life.
Cozy is a word you see a lot on my site. What do I mean by that? Cozy is living simply and purposefully according to our deeply held beliefs. It is what I call the coming together of purposeful living, simple living, and faithful living.
- Purposeful Living – Making deliberate and thoughtful choices rather than going with the flow, even if it means being different from the crowd.
- Simple Living – Including only those things in our life that bring real value.
- Faithful Living – Making choices that align with our faith and core beliefs.
When we choose cozy living we bring greater peace, understanding, joy, beauty, and faith to our homes and the lives of our loved ones.

5. Find Me On Social Media
I gave up traditional social media long ago, but then felt led back to it for now. I do want to see alternate platforms flourish so I am most active on Truth Social and Gab.
