About The Nest

Alright, after having this blog for some time, I've realized that I need to revamp what this blog is about.  Before I had grand ideas of making it all about Pagan Parenting, kind of hard to do when you barely have the experience, right?

Therefore, this blog is mainly about my journey dealing with pregnancy and parenting.  I also type about spirituality, Paganism, and Witchcraft, as well as Arts & Crafts in the Pagan Parenting sense.  I'm still providing links to other Pagan Parenting sites and activities.


I just realized with our address of "Wren's Family Medicine" that some may, at first, think pharmacists?  But I chose it with Wren Medicine in mind.  If you're familiar with me or my other blog, Book of Mirrors, you'll know that working with Animal Spirits and their signs is very important to my practice.  According to Animal Spirit Totems, this is what Wren Medicine is all about:

 "Wren represents a new period of incoming energy, increased activity and heightened alertness in mental, physical, and emotional areas. There is clarity with a creative vibrancy along with activated confidence in the ability to adapt to any situations. [...] Wren expresses an effervescence and renewed vitality of relationships within the environment; work, home, family, groups. He shows that emotional journey includes joy and happiness. You deserve it. It is time to lighten your heart with the creative arts and spending time in nature to rejuvenate. Wren's medicine also includes determination, strength and fortitude and resourcefulness with the art of multitasking. He shows balancing and timing of when to be aggressive and when to be subdued. Listen to your body for indicators. Although he may not always be seen, his song speaks to the heart in order for you to sing your own wonderful song. [...]  His medicine will guide you and provide strength to move forward."

I figured that with "Wren" being my married name, I'd work the bird in there, too.  And I like their message, it's pretty similar to my Mountain Goat Totem, only a lot more happier.  "Determination, strength and fortitude and resourcefulness with the art of multitasking" sound to be good qualities for any family.
