Hi, I’m Jenna Jury

Hi! Welcome to the Peaceful Nest. I am Jenna, a mom of two little girls and a little boy who are forever keeping me on my toes. I am also a mom to a little boy in heaven.

I am a freelance writer, blogger and advocate for creating a peaceful home life and helping others learn to live peacefully after tragedy. Aside from running the Peaceful Nest Blog, I home school my littles and work from home!

So I guess you could say I am a go-getter who is constantly looking for great opportunities.

I love reading and writing but not as much as I love coffee. I survive on caffeine. Seriously, if I was stranded on a desert island and could only take one thing, it would be a lifetime supply of coffee. 

I could use that coffee to fuel me while I came up with an action plan to get off the island. (Gotta think outside of the box right? Best way to do that is fueled with caffeine and determination.)

I love to create, craft and journal. The most important thing to me is my family. I live a calm and peaceful life and I wouldn’t want it any other way!

What Can You Learn From Me?


If you want a peaceful home life you first need to start with your marriage! Your marriage is the center of your family, when it is peaceful, everything else will fall into place


Parenting is never easy. But you can be the peaceful parent you desire with some heart work and alot of grace.


Your home is your family’s safe haven. A place to unwind and relax. a peaceful atmosphere can make this easier.

Our story

In 2011 our son David passed away at 6 days old. For several years I went through anxiety and depression, something I didn’t share with many people. This anxiety ruled my world. Our daughters were born during this time. I didn’t want my anxiety to rule my parenting. I desired to create a peaceful home life for my children. I knew I needed to give my anxiety to the Lord and also seek help where I needed it.

Little by little I discovered ways I could create a peaceful home life for my husband, children and myself. Some tips I gathered from other people, many were passed down to me from relatives.  My desire to create a peaceful home life for our children and my love of writing drove me to create the Peaceful Nest Blog. I wanted a place I could hold myself accountable, while also sharing tips with other moms like me. Now we are here and the rest is history 🙂
