Hi! My name is Samantha Jackson, blogger here at Simple Nesting. I was born and raised in Canada on a 50-acre farm, where I was able to play and grow. I met my husband at our church and we now live in Michigan. I was a stay-at-home wife for almost two years and then had my beautiful girls, Amelia (7) and Clara (6). They are now my entire life and purpose, and I am so thankful for the privilege of being able to stay home with them. I love cooking, decorating, spending time with my family, and most importantly studying the word of God.
What is Simple Nesting?
Simple Nesting, the name of my blog, came about because I believe that “nesting” is something to be appreciated and nurtured. I also believe that it is a command from our Heavenly Father (1 Tim. 5:14, Titus 2).
So, if you love decorating, cooking, spending time with family and friends and making your house into a home, then this is the place for you. I believe that we all have the ability to create a loving, nurturing, and inviting atmosphere in our homes. And I hope that you will find the encouragment and resources that you need here.
I’ve been “nesting”, if you will, ever since I got married in 2009, almost 11 years now. I have also, always been a “keeper at home”. I never pursued higher education or chasing a career.
I believe that working in our homes is a career. And that creating a loving and welcoming place is not complicated, but simple. It doesn’t take much, just some careful thought and a loving touch.
I hope that you will join me on this adventure of nesting our homes. Growing with our families in whatever season of life we all may be in at this time. I hope that this blog will inspire you to make your home a loving environment and a place of refuge for your family.
