A Well-Feathered Nest: the reinvention of a blog

I suppose it is misleading to call this a reinvention.  In all reality after almost five years my blog finally has an identity!!  I have always been a little bothered by the fact that I couldn't pin down any one "topic" to write about way back when I started, and over the years I have often felt like it could use a little focus.

I was very hesitant to just change it all up after so long, but after the idea for A Well-Feathered Nest came to me, it just seemed to grow in my heart, and so I wanted to go for it and share my passion with you all.  On the outside it may look like my blog just got a name and a new look, but on my inside I am so excited about the focus it has given me.

I don't even remember where I came across the photo or words or whatever it was that sparked my idea, but the idea of a well-feathered nest says so much about who I am, what I do, and what I want to share with the world.  My day to day job is to create a home that nurtures our family--that nourishes each of us physically, mentally, and spiritually.  I want it to be a home that teaches my children to love, to appreciate beauty, and to overflow in wisdom and service to Christ.  There are so many ways that I seek to do that, and so that's what I'll be sharing here with the world.


  1. Great name. I hope you have even more success in the next 5 years.

  2. I think it sounds great. Just like a mother bird watches after her nest and her eggs a good mother does the same with her children and her family. I know that this mother bird doesn't always see eye to eye but she loves and would protect her little chicks for as long as she lives. Her greatest joy in life are her little chicks and seeing them spread their wings and fly. As she gets older and family starts moving on to be with the Lord her greatest longing is to know that her children are taken care of and will be with her again one day in Heaven with that time comes. She doesn't say it enough but she is very proud of what her children have become and are doing in their lives. I love you all. Nana
