Meet Leigh Cappillino, Denise Jones, and Shelley Breen, the women who comprise the multi-platinum trio Point of Grace. As a group, it’s a career that’s 20 years in and 13 albums deep, punctuated with 27 #1 songs, 13 Dove Awards, two GRAMMY nominations, and career album sales in excess of 7 million with multiple Platinum and Gold certifications, making them one of the Top 10 best-selling artists in the history of Contemporary Christian music.
But to stop there is to capture only a single dimension of these multi-talented women. All three are wives, mothers, and homeowners with their own unique tastes and styles. We invite you to step inside the homes of each of these Nashville-based artists and get to know the heart and soul of Point of Grace.

As you cross the threshold of Leigh Cappillino and husband Dana’s inviting home in Franklin, Tennessee, notes of a rich family heritage and love for musical arts are as evident as its bold, welcoming color palette. Just off the front door is the Cappillino family music room, where at any given moment one if not all members of the family is exercising their musical talents.
“When we moved in five years ago everything was an oak color,” Denise Jones says of her home in Nashville, Tennessee. “It was a beautiful oak, but it was just too much for me. I need things to be bit lighter and have a feeling of airiness.” But with two teenage boys, finding the balance of her desired aesthetics and practical spaces for her family posed a bit of a challenge.
Shelley Breen and her husband, David, moved into their 1969 ranch nearly 20 years ago. “We kind of always viewed it as our starter house,” Shelley admits, “but we really just fell in love with our neighbors.” So instead of moving to a bigger house the couple decided to remodel, adding on a little extra living space and renovating the kitchen to create a beautiful, functional home where they and daughter Caroline could grow—without giving up the neighborhood friends they’d grown to consider family.
