The Evolving Nest is a collaborative blog where we welcome new and seasoned writers.


The Evolving Nest is one of my favorite places on the internet. Being a contributor has given me a beautiful sneak peek behind the scenes where life, hope and often just enough humor intertwined to make what’s shared something I never want to miss. Lisa’s mission to help each of us thrive on our journeys of faith and family is like a deep well that parches our thirsty souls. —Esther Goetz of Moms of Bigs, The Dolly Mama, and Co-Author of the best-selling book “Moms Never Stop Momming”

  • The Evolving Nest is all about creating connections that last. We love articles based on your own life experiences: interesting marriage stories that may help others, the transition to an empty-nest, how you’re staying healthy (or aspiring to), couples travel and adventure, coping with COVID, and how you are handling (or handled) any major life challenge or transitions. Your stories may be humorous, intensely personal, and/or illustrate how you are thriving or overcame or are in the process of overcoming a challenge.
  • We applaud first-time writers! You do not need to be a previously published writer to submit.
  • If you are currently divorced or widowed, we encourage you to share your story. (See samples)
  • Experts are welcome here: Marriage and Family Therapists, Health and Wellness professionals, and Travel and Adventure writers, to name a few, are all welcome to submit articles or other digital content for review. Content that includes personal experiences or real-life examples, versus advice-only is preferred.
  • What type of travel-related stories do we seek to publish? Take us on a journey…transport us to your latest destination, even if it’s your own backyard—which may be the case due to the pandemic. Write like you are telling a good friend about your trip, even if you traveled as a group. Please leave all the travel agent information for an attached link, and just tell us about your trip. We will gladly share links to where readers can find you.


If your submission is selected for publishing, we encourage you to promote and share from The Evolving Nest’s website, Facebook, or Instagram on all your social media channels!

If you have your own website, you are welcome to add your links to your author’s bio for cross-promotion. The Evolving Nest invites you to collaborate with us!

It was a delight working with The Evolving Nest. Lisa has such a pulse on the very real triumphs and challenges that hallmark this stage of life. I so appreciate her providing a community that lets us know we are not alone.  —Contributor,  Stephanie Riley
