A twenty-something wife and mother raised in Eastern Kentucky. Most people don’t believe that last statement because I don’t possess the typical “Eastern Kentucky accent.” I now live in South Central Kentucky in a little county right before you get into Tennessee. I’m a work-at-home mom to one little boy who is almost a year old. My favorite job title is Mom, but my job title that brings income is Childcare Coordinator at Crossland Community Church. I love my church and I love my job!
An Open Birdcage blog is where I share various stories, tutorials, and bits of my pretty chill life in hopes of putting a smile on your face and inspiring you to be who God created you to be.
The title of this blog came from 2011 when I spent the summer living in community with other Jesus followers in Louisville, Kentucky. There was this t-shirt that had a bird perched in an opened birdcage. On the back of the t-shirt was a Phoenix. The message that the shirt portrayed was that you can sit in the birdcage and be safe and protected there, but God has opened the door and gives you the freedom to soar like a Phoenix. Don’t be afraid of change. Change can be a great thing!
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. -Deuteronomy 31:6
I hope you leave this site with something you didn’t have before whether it be an idea, some inspiration, a newly learned skill, or just a smile on your face. I hope life is treating you well and that you stay positive even in a negative world.
