Hi there! I’m Nitra. And welcome to my little corner of the web.
I created Nitra’s Nook back in 2013 with the intention of helping people with their DIY home decorating needs. At the time, I was working in “corporate america” as a project coordinator for a construction consultation company. I loved being a part of the revitalization of buildings in the WNY area, if even in a very small way.
However after the birth of my son in 2012, my desires began to change. I desired to spend more time with him… raising him. I couldn’t shake the feeling that I wasn’t doing all I could as a mother… as a wife… and as a child of God.
In an attempt to better myself, I returned to school and took an online course at Empire State College in ethics. That course helped me clarify concerns about my life, that otherwise would have taken me longer to resolve.
I came to realize that being a working mother didn’t make me a bad mom, and desiring to be a work at home mom didn’t make me a bad employee either. I realized that regardless what path I chose, all I could do is live my life in such a way that on judgement day Jesus will tell me… “well done, my good and faithful servant…”.
