I love to write, but About pages leave me drawing a blank! There’s really not much to say about me, except that the Lord has put our ordinary family on a journey of many twists and turns I pray will be used to draw us closer to Himself. 

In December 2021, my husband and I left the country of our birth (Canada) with our six children, to start the American branch of our family business in Texas. 
We are learning what it means to wait upon the Lord and rest in His sovereignty. Our visa is dependent on many things outside of our control, but God continues to provide, confirm, and reassure as He leads us through one step of faith at a time. 
Northern Nester is a conglomeration of thoughts along the way and mash-up of my favorite things: 
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I finally read your about story after more consistently following you of later. What a terrific way to thread your family and the rest of life all together. My homeschool days are over but my oldest daughter is so I can share you all with her. Blessings

  2. Trying hard to declutter. Overwhelmed with all the photos from when our kids were little to the present time with 3 granddaughters. Add to it all the old pics I’m finding as we clean out my parents farm house. Had great plans to scrapbook when my kids were younger. Yep, never had time to do consistently. Tons of scrapbook stuff too. Any suggestions?

  3. I am a Canadian too, and keep coming back to your site. I’m so glad you decided to keep on with Northern Nester, rather than selling! My SIL loves your site, too! So glad I can keep on popping in here with the same folks behind it all!
    Wishing you all the best in your endeavors!

  4. I just ran across your website and have a question that maybe you can answer. I live in The Dalles, Oregon and decided to try growing sweet potato slips. I didn’t judge the correct timing on this and now have lots of slips growing roots in glasses of water, but right now it is too cold here (daytime highs of 59 – 67 and nighttime temperatures of 40 – 47. I understand sweet potatoes need temps above 65 during the day and no lower than 55 at night. I am wondering what to do with the slips that are well rooted until they can be planted in the ground? Would they survive potting, then transplanting when the weather is warmer? I’ve tried to find my answers on the internet, but no luck.

  5. Hey Jacinda and family. One of my Texas friends just asked me about your blog. Small world, as my family and I felt the call to leave Canada (our small town of Listowel, Ontario) and moved down here to northeast Texas last October. I’m looking forward to reading your blog and maybe connecting.
