Why Eagle's Nest

Three years ago we moved from a city were you could say pass the salt to your neighbor though the window, to 7.5 acres in the country. Well my husband said that a house with this much land needs a name, so after much thought it became The Eagle’s Nest. The reasons being that not only are we an Air Force family and are active in Civil Air Patrol. But the verse in the Bible Isaiah 40:31 “ But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. “ 


We view our home as a haven for children, not only our own but also their friends. This summer we have 2 extra children with us my niece and nephew, and I can say they are growing. Not only taller with the amount of food they consume, but as children. They love to play outside, climb trees, swimming lessons; even chores and schoolwork are getting done. A big thank you to my sister Sabrina for letting me borrow her children this summer to enjoy.


That is were the word nest came, I want my home to be a nest were all children are welcome to rest, learn, and grow. A place were children feel safe and loved, and grow not only taller, but as future adults. For now that means having nieces and nephews during the summer and school breaks, but in the future maybe children from other lands.


  1. I hope you will enjoy it here - it's a fun place! Your home sounds great! My home is a nest, too...for dustbunnies and spider webs. :-)


  2. I love to have a place where the kids can explore. We don't personally own but about 2 acres, but there is a lot of land around us and it is wonderful! I am glad that your eagles are enjoying the nest!
