About The Purposeful Nest

Hi! I’m Ashley.

A former cop turned stay-at-home wife and mama, and the creator of The Purposeful Nest. Browse around and you’ll see that I have a thing for children’s books, DIY crafts, and fun activities for kids.

I originally started this blog to document the preschool activities I was doing with my young children.

Today, The Purposeful Nest is where I showcase arts & crafts inspiration, homeschooling resources, printables, recipes and more.

I hope you find the content here on The Purposeful Nest to be both interesting and helpful.
