About

Welcome, friend!

I’m so glad you stopped by my blog. Let me introduce myself.

I’m Andrea and I created Nesting Mama to inspire other moms to simplify their life and enjoy a happier, more efficient, and less stressful home life.

If you’ve ever felt bogged down by all the mundane tasks you have to do merely to keep your home running smoothly (cooking, cleaning, laundry, and the like) and found yourself yearning for more free time to actually live your life or spend time playing with your kids, then take a look around this blog.

Here you’ll find inspiration for setting up efficient home management systems, streamlining mealtimes and simplifying your life as a mom.

You’ll also find ideas for eliminating clutter, restoring order, and implementing routines so you can create a more functional home and spend more time living your life, not just maintaining life.

A Few Fun Facts About Me…

Besides being a lover of organization, here are a few other tidbits about me:

  • I’m originally from Oklahoma.
  • But I’m happy to call Orange County, CA my home, along with my husband and daughter. In fact, we like to find fun things to do together as a family in Orange County. You can check out our Orange County adventures in case you plan on traveling to the OC.
  • Speaking of traveling, I have traveled to over 30 countries on 4 continents. Some highlights were visiting Ephesus, Pompeii, and Iceland.
  • I have a degree in Musical Theatre and have both worked professionally in the field and taught private voice lessons at a music school. Now that I’m a SAHM, I’ll oftentimes serenade my toddler (because she’s always sometimes a captive audience).
  • I’m a lover of Christ.

Enough about me. I’d love to learn a little something about you too!

    1. Your welcome, Sebastian. Thank you for visiting my blog as well! I was encouraged by Faith 1st, particularly the series of posts on “Speak What You Believe.” It reminded me of Revelation 12:11 and that the overcomers are those who declare the divine facts!

  3. Hello Andrea, I’m happy that you took the privilege of serving the Lord! Truly, nothing is a waste to Him.. Now that I only have a year left for college, I also am facing that “holy bargain”. The outside environment seems to pull me back from giving the Lord that 2 full years, but then deep within, there is that sweet calling voice… calling “Whom shall I send”. Lord, may you soften my heart to respond, “Here am I, send me!”

    1. What a mercy to have the Lord’s personal, sweet calling. He’s such a gentleman. You won’t regret the time you give to the Lord – it’s never a waste. Two years will go by so fast. Keep looking to the Lord for His will and His timing, in His way. 🙂

  5. I’m glad you liked me. It’s encouraging to find like minds. We need more prayer info in the world. The tougher it gets out there, the more people will be looking for prayer stuff and for wisdom from the Word.

    1. That’s right, the situation in society certainly isn’t improving. That just reveals that people need Christ. He truly is the “Desire of all the nations” (Haggai 2:7).

  7. Good morning Andrea. I remember a blogging sister among us who was studying speech therapy or speech pathology. Is that you? If not, do you know who/which blog? We have a college freshman here in L.A. who want to get into this field and it might be helpful for her to touch someone else in the field and loving Jesus. You may reply here or email to newjerusalem@socal.rr.com. Thanks!
