Welcome to the Blessed Nest

Welcome to The Blessed Nest! I am excited to start this blog because it’s something I have been dreaming about for a long time.  I’ve had a lot of reasons NOT to do it.

“I have too much going on already…”

“There are plenty of other people blogging and I don’t need to add to the internet noise…”

“No one will read my stuff.”

But the ideas won’t stop…they just keep coming.

Conversations with friends.  Something my pastor says in a sermon.  A fun  craft I make.  I want to share it…with YOU.

I want to connect, to inform, to encourage.  In a day and age where it would be easy to spend more time on social media than in face to face interactions, the last thing I want to do is take you further into that world.  So don’t read this blog if you need to chat with your husband or set up a train set with your kids.  (You should read it if you want to get out of laundry!) But when you can steal a few minutes for yourself…let’s treat this site as a virtual coffee date. Let’s talk about the things that are real. I am looking forward to your comments just as much as I posting!

You might see tips for organizing a household full of young children, posts to prompt you in thoughtful introspection about relationships, tutorials for easy ways of beautifying your space. Really anything that comes to mind that will help you have a happier, healthier nest.

I don’t want you to think I have it all together. I am not even going to try to perpetuate that image; I’m just a fellow sojourner trying to live a life of meaning.  Whenever you need a little advice, a little encouragement, or a little inspiration, stop by.
