“And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’”
Home Tours have become a regular here at Everyday Living, and I have loved wandering through them all with you! Today we are taking a little road trip down to Montgomery, AL to the home of Cole and Joy Portis.
I don’t personally know the Portis family, but after reading about them, I certainly feel like I do! The Portis family brings together two things that are close to my heart: the great state of Alabama and the heart of God to adopt us as His children. While their house is beautiful inside and out, it pales in comparison to the sweet home they have built for their 3 biological children, the 6 they have adopted, and over 20 they have fostered! Their lives are a beautiful reminder of our Heavenly Father who has chosen and adopted us into His family, and provided everything that we need.

The kitchen features two dishwashers, two refrigerators, and two islands for the large family. A large walk-in pantry is adjacent to the kitchen. With a family of 11, can you imagine the groceries that would need to be stored?
A well-designed mudroom with cubbies for each of the kids was a necessity. The space is off the garage and is a great drop-zone. I can’t begin to think of the backpacks, athletic shoes, and equipment for nine children…I am overwhelmed thinking about it.
The family needed a much larger home than their previous one with four small bedrooms. They needed space for their kids now and in the future. Imagine how many grandchildren will one day fill this home!
I hope you enjoyed this beautiful home, but most importantly, the hearts of the sweet family who lives here!
