God’s love can spark ideas! After purchasing 36 acres of untouched,serene land in Ponder,Tx, LaWanna & Chris knew their purchase was destined for something special. Their original intention for the land was to build housing subdivisions and employ their family to manage and run the operation. Shortly after their purchase, her youngest daughter suggested building a wedding and event venue, and it was an idea they could not part from – so with the celebrated purpose of bringing people together to showcase Jesus’s love for us and each other, and families uniting under His banner becoming one, The Nest was born. Now, we get the privilege of being in the housing business in a different way by hosting the most special day in someones life, where they are ultimately choosing to start their new family! It is an amazing honor and privilege to know what we feel God has called us to, and cannot wait to share our love for The Nest with you!
Knowing that she wanted to incorporate and honor her biggest inspiration, her Grandmother Ruth, LaWanna decided to dedicate and name the land “Ruth Farms” after her.”The Nest,” came from LaWanna’s husband, because he tells her they are two love birds who have built their own nest together. While The Nest is the first project LaWanna and Chris are taking on with these 36 acres, They have plans to build farmhouses for guests to stay, flower gardens to walk through, plan to have cattle and farms animals on the land in the future.
