Why Seven Swans

Seven Swans A Swimming, as sung in the 12 Days of Christmas refers to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit from Romans 12:6-8; cf. 1 Corinthians 12:8-11.  Seven also refers to the number of members in our immediate family.  I also, personally, love birds and swans in particular are a favorite as they are such a beautiful bird.  In general swans mate for life and are a great team in procreation. Both mama and papa sit on the eggs and take care of their young. While the mama is definitely the 'home maker' (she is the one to make the nest and the primary warmer of the eggs) and the papa is the 'provider/protector' (he seeks out the prime location that is free from predators and he is the primary food provider).  Both Swans work together and are capable of switching roles when needed. 


I am very blessed to have my family and my husband, who is such an awesome father and friend! Together, our family has Seven Swans Studios (TM) where we create items and sell them on our Etsy store and we head up the non-profit organization called Epilepsy A.W.A.R.E. God put great significance in names and it has never been something that Brendan and I take lightly. Each member of our family has had their name chosen very carefully with the Lords leading.  I did the same thing here. I do hope you enjoy what we share.
