Welcome to the Sacred Living Webpage. Since founding my design firm over 15 years ago I have entered into a period of developing something significant with my work as a Designer, something which I feel will contribute to society and have significant impact. Through my own life experiences and assisting many in overcoming great suffering I am proud to launch the pioneering efforts of "Healing Space Design." This will hopefully lead to the future development of a lifestyle brand whose purpose it will be to educate and inspire individuals and families to live a more peaceful, calm, centered life through product design, lighting, aromatherapy, and home furnishings.

My goal as a Designer has always been to not only design beautiful, functional environments but more importantly to create a more healing experience with the home. The pressure of modern living has brought about the highest levels of stress and anxiety which now affect everyone and along with it emotional, physical and spiritual imbalance. With numerous case studies I have been privileged to assist many private clients, friends and loved ones through almost every major life transition from chronic illness, loss, anxiety, depression, addiction recovery to the end of life transition. Through a holistic design approach I consider all aspects of the environment to achieve this outcome.

I wish to dedicate this work to one of the greatest loves of my life, Sherri Eberhart who remains the soul inspiration of this work. Upon learning of her stage 4 cancer diagnosis I gifted her healing space in her modest home in Raytown, Missouri where we both grew up; the result was her desire for an Angel Room. Sherri found great peace and comfort in this humble bedroom converted into a Sacred Space as she prepared for her transition. Sherri faced this with the upmost courage which touched everyone who experienced it. Through this experience our prayer was that one day others can experience the effects of "Healing Space Design" as Sherri and her family did during this most precious life experience. Sherri said farewell to over 250 loved ones, friends, and co-workers over the last 2 days of her life, prior to her passing peacefully in her Angel Room.
