Each room of your home serves a specific purpose. The kitchen exists to nourish. The living room is there for relaxation. The dining room, for fellowship. And we don’t need to go into the details of what the bathroom is for. But arguably the most important room of your home is the bedroom. It’s your sanctuary, your safe space.

Heads up: this is not a post about how our family doesn’t watch TV. We are a busy family, like any other, but we do love to watch our favorite shows and sports. Instead, I want to share how our family manages to enjoy television with out spending a ton of money on cable TV service each month.
